Minors Injured in Miami Car Accidents
At DRG Firm being South Florida car accident attorneys we understand how terrifying it can be when your minor child is injured in a car accident. If your child or a minor has been injured in South Florida by a negligent driver in a car crash then we can help you make sure their rights are secured. Often, a police report or other proof from an accident will establish fault. This leaves the at-fault driver’s insurance company paying your bills. However, when costly and extensive medical treatment is needed, the insurance company may try to avoid paying all or even any of the expenses. Having an experienced attorney deal with the insurance company for you will protect your child’s rights.
In an ideal world, recovering for your child's accident injuries would be simple, but often this is not the case. Hopefully, you can resolve without having to go to court, but this may not be possible and you may need to file suit on behalf of your child. The threat of a Miami car accident attorney and a lawsuit leads to many insurance companies offering settlement before court proceedings begin.
If you have been offered a settlement, you should still seek the advice of a Miami-Dade car accident attorney to ensure it is sufficient to compensate for the expenses resulting from the injury to the minor. If an insurance company is refusing to pay your child's bills, an attorney can protect your child's legal rights. If necessary, you can file suit on behalf of your minor child as their legal guardian. If you were also injured, you can sue on your own behalf as well. If you have to go to trial, our lawyers will make sure you are prepared to offer evidence of the other driver's liability, as well as the expenses that resulted from it.
Injury to a minor is a complex legal issue that you should not attempt to handle on your own. There are many concerns at stake for the minor including receiving adequate compensation and making sure that payment is protected. A child's settlement requires court approval. Not only will the amount of the settlement need to be determined, but typically the configuration of a trust or a structured settlement must also be laid out.
