Children are our pride and joy, and we do everything we can to protect them. That’s why it is even more devastating when a child is injured in an accident. Young children, especially, are not able to understand the circumstances of the accident like an adult is able to process it. The law has recognized this fact and has adjusted the rules for compensation and liability in accidents when minors are involved.
A child may not be old enough to seek justice for themselves, but their current parents or guardians absolutely have the right to seek and negotiate compensation on their child’s behalf with the help of a Gwinnett County child injury attorney.
