Our dedicated team of experienced attorneys is here to provide you with the guidance you need to understand this complex issue and seek justice for your child.

Understanding the Rights of Minors in Injury Cases

When it comes to personal injury claims, minors are often in a unique position. Minors, including babies, have the right to pursue legal action against individuals or entities responsible for causing them harm. This includes injuries suffered during their infancy.

However, it is important to note that minors cannot typically file lawsuits on their own behalf. Parents or legal guardians must act as their representatives or "next friends" in legal matters until they reach the age of majority. Minors rely on their parents or guardians to bring forth injury claims on their behalf.

Proving Negligence in Baby Injury Cases

In order to successfully win an injury claim for injuries suffered as a baby, it is crucial to establish negligence on the part of the responsible party or parties. Negligence occurs when someone fails to uphold a reasonable duty of care, resulting in harm to another person.

When it comes to baby injury cases, negligence can arise from a variety of circumstances. Examples include medical malpractice during childbirth, defective products, failure to provide proper supervision, or any action or inaction that directly leads to harm to the infant.
