A Child Bringing a Claim for Another’s Negligence.
Was your child severely injured by a negligent person? Contact experienced Buffalo Personal Injury Lawyer Robert Maranto to fight for you.
As a dedicated Buffalo Personal Injury Lawyer, I am often asked if a child can bring a claim against the negligence of another person in an accident.
- New York State grants a child the same opportunity to bring a personal injury claim as an adult.
- 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.
- Infants may bring a claim; however, it must be done through a parent, custodian, or guardian.
