Child Injured By Another Child's Negligence

Damian Mallard, Esq.
Board Certified Sarasota Personal Injury Attorney

http://www.mallardlawfirm.com If a child is injured through another child’s negligence, can the injured child bring a claim?

The answer to this question is, NO! If a child under the age of 18 is injured through someone else’s negligence, in the state of Florida, they do not have the legal right to bring a claim. Their parent or legal guardian must bring the claim on their behalf. This is because they cannot enter contracts or legal agreements until the age of 18, which is the age of maturity in the state of Florida.

At Mallard Law Firm, we have many years of experience in handling these types of situations and we can either appoint you as the guardian of your child or have a guardian ad litem appointed to bring a case on behalf of your child.

If you have such a scenario, please do not hesitate to contact us at the Mallard Law Firm, 888-409-3805, to discuss your claim with an experienced Sarasota child injury lawyer.
