Injuries To Children – Filing an Injury Claim
When a child is injured or killed, it can be one of the most tragic events parents and loved ones will ever have to endure. Parents should talk to an experienced personal injury attorney about their case when a child’s injury has serious physical and emotional consequences. The Minnesota child injury lawyers and attorneys at Sieben Polk P.A. have over 50 years of experience in handling child personal injury claims.
If your child is injured, a claim can usually be brought until the child’s 18th birthday. Generally, however, it is not a good idea to wait to pursue an injured child’s claim. Important evidence is lost, witnesses cannot be found or contacted, and the just compensation the child deserves may be forfeited.
