When a child is injured an accident, there are several significant legal issues to be considered. A top lawyer who represents children will discuss these issues in detail with you when you call our office.

First, although the child has suffered the injury, the parents are still responsible for the medical bills. Therefore, when our injury attorneys work on an accident case where a child has been injured, we represent the child first, but we also make sure that the parents are reimbursed for their expenses including medical bills.

Second, the law in Minnesota requires that any settlement of the child’s injury case must be approved by a court – it is the court’s responsibility to verify that the settlement is fair for the child.

Third, any settlement for the child’s accident injury will generally not be available to the child or parents until the child is at least 18 years old, unless a judge agrees that the money is needed sooner for the benefit of the child. The settlement money also must be invested in a very safe way (bank deposit, insurance annuity, etc.). However, while age 18 is the earliest the money can be available to the child, the settlement can be structured so it is not available until later or not all at once. For example, the parents may structure payments to the child yearly starting age 18, or not start until age 22 when the child graduates college so that the child and family can still qualify for financial aid.
