Young children are exposed to constant dangers in their daily lives. From passing cars in crosswalks to hazards on the playground, the risk of a catastrophic injury or death is always present. Cases involving injuries to minors present a unique situation in that states generally require a parent or guardian to represent the minor. Additionally, the parent or guardian should consult with an experienced personal injury lawyer, particularly if the minor sustained serious injuries. Do not underestimate future treatment costs should a child require continuous care beyond maturity and into adulthood.
