As an experienced Buffalo Accident Lawyer, I speak to people who have been effected by an injury that takes a child’s life. As in any death case, the deceased person’s estate is permitted to bring a claim on behalf of the individual – regardless of whether that individual is a child or an adult. In the case of a child, an estate must be set up because as infants, they are not likely to have a will. There’s no need for it. Once an administrator or administratrix is established for the deceased child’s estate – usually one of the parents – that parent is permitted to bring the claim.
