Filing a Lawsuit on Behalf of an Injured Child
Do you have questions about filing a lawsuit on behalf of an injured child? Our Buffalo lawyer explains in this educational video.
When people come in to see us and they tell us that their child has been injured, there is a little bit of trepidation with the thought that, okay, I have to go to court and have to file a lawsuit. While that sometimes is the case, it’s not always the case. When you’re protecting your child’s rights, you certainly want to file a claim, which means letting the other side know that your child has been injured, letting the other side know what the treatment has been, and letting the other side know how your child is doing.
Very often what happens is sometimes after months or maybe even years, a claim can be settled out of court without the tensions, and the frustrations, and the trepidations of having to file a lawsuit and having to go to court. While some cases do require a formal lawsuit, sometimes it is necessary, very often, it’s not necessary to file a lawsuit. Cases can be negotiated and settled outside of court without a lawsuit.
If your child has been injured due to someone else’s negligence, our Lawyers understand that this is a difficult time for you. Contact one of our Buffalo Child Injury Lawyers to fight for your child’s full recovery.
