When children are injured in an accident there is a greater sense of urgency. No one wants to see a child suffer. Everyone wants to see a child make as full and as immediate of a recovery as possible. This can mean having access to medical care that is specialized toward dealing with the injuries of the young.
For children who have been injured in an accident in Virginia, the pursuit of the compensation they will need to be able to cover their medical bills and ensure their access to high-caliber medical care that is designed with their needs in mind requires the skill and experience of an attorney who has a record of working with the parents of injured children. Any claims for injured children must be filed by the children's parents.
Structured Settlements in Childhood Personal Injury Cases
Child personal injury cases often involve structured settlements. These settlements are designed to create a set of available funds to help the child face future medical expenses, which may be difficult to determine in the present. Any such settlements must be approved by the courts.
