Injuries to Minors and Incapacitated Persons
People under the age of 18 and those who have been found by a court to be incapacitated because they are unable to take care of their own personal, medical and/or financial needs cannot file a lawsuit without the help of a parent, adult or guardian. Children, teenagers and incapacitated people are at high risk for many injuries including those caused by:
- Cars and other motor vehicle accidents
- Playground equipment
- Ingestion of household products such as makeup and personal care products, cleaning substances, pain relievers and other medications, and plants
- Household fires
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Swimming-related accidents
- Understaffing at daycare facilities
- Nursing home neglect
- Medical malpractice
In some instances these accidents can lead to death or severe disability. Personal injury lawsuits filed on behalf of children and people unable to care for themselves can therefore involve extraordinary ongoing medical costs.
We strive to help you:
- get the best medical care,
- get your medical bills paid,
- make sure you do not suffer financially through any lost wages, and
- ensure that the right party pays for future treatment relating to your injury.
