Buffalo Personal Injury Lawyer Discusses a Child Bringing a Claim for Another’s Negligence.

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.

  • I was offered 0 on a low impact accident. After long litigation I was offered 100,000 which mr maranto rejected. I ended up with 235,000. I would definately use this firm again.

  • So far, so good! This law office appears to have it's stuff together. And I like the fact that they don't have to advertise like the the the other 2 law firms with the 444444 and the 888888 numbers which tells me they get a lot of word of mouth advertising..the best kind. Also I called one of the 444 and/or 888 numbers and the attorney was very short and rude. After my case I will do a follow up to let you all know how my complete experience was.
