COMPENSATION FOR CHILD INJURED BY ANOTHER CHILD – MN ATTORNEY
Our lawyers have represented many children who were injured in an accident by another child. In many cases, the parents are faced with significant medical bills, a high deductible or co-pays because of their child’s injury. Even though the injury accident was caused by another child, you may still be able to get compensation for your child’s medical bills and more.
Many of the child accident injury cases our top lawyers handle occur on the school playground, gym, sports, or the school bus. We even had one case where a child accidentally injured another child in the band room by coming up behind her and intentionally bumping the front of his knee into the back of her knee – trying to get her off balance as a joke, buy unfortunately causing serious damage to her knee requiring surgery.
It is difficult to sue the school when on child injures another child, but it can sometimes be done. The proof required is that the school violated its own policy, or knew the child was dangerous and did not restrain him or her, or was not monitoring the situation in a responsible way. Our child injury lawyers are also often successful in pursuing the insurance of the child who caused the injury. If the child who injured your child lives in a home with homeowner’s insurance, the child will be covered for accidentally causing an injury even away from home, e.g. at school or on a school bus or sporting event.
Our attorneys also frequently represent children injured by another child on the street, in the neighborhood, in the neighbor’s yard or house, and local playgrounds.
