As a dedicated Buffalo Injury Attorney, I often speak to parents who have a child that has suffered an injury caused by another’s negligence. In New York State, a child has the same opportunity to bring a claim for personal injuries as anybody else. Although most 17-year-olds don’t want to be called an infant, prior to the age of 18, New York State considers them as such. Those individuals may bring the claim; however, it must be done through a parent, custodian, or guardian.
