Red Deer Child and Youth Injury Lawyers
Personal Injury Lawyers in Red Deer Helping Young Accident Victims Recover Compensation
Personal injury cases that involve children often have to be handled very differently than those that involve adults. Children, like adults, can suffer injuries under a variety of different circumstances, including car and truck accidents, slip-and-falls, and bicycle accidents which result from someone else’s negligence. These incidents sometimes occur while the child is being supervised by a school, daycare program, summer camp program, or swimming pool. In those instances, the negligent person or persons could be sued, and compensation could be recovered for the minor child's benefit.
Alberta has complex regulations when it comes to pursuing a personal injury claim on behalf of a minor. The experienced Red Deer child and youth injury lawyers at Red Deer Personal Injury Law have the knowledge, training, and experience to handle these special cases and recover the necessary compensation on behalf of the minor child. To schedule a free case evaluation with one of our lawyers, call our office today at 1 (844) 512-4098.
Special Requirements in Personal Injury Cases that Involve Minors
Personal injury claims that involve children and youth in Alberta have special requirements associated with them. First, a minor who is pursuing a personal injury claim will need a legal guardian to bring that claim on his or her behalf. In some instances, personal injury settlements involving a minor require special court approval. Moreover, the best interests of the child must be accounted for when reaching a personal injury settlement. At Red Deer Injury Law, we are qualified to handle personal injury cases arising from a wide variety of incidents, including:
- Car accidents
- Bicycle accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Playground accidents
- Medical malpractice
- Pool and spa accidents
- Recreational accidents
Determining the Extent of a Minor's Injuries Can Be Difficult
In addition to the procedural requirements associated with a personal injury case involving a minor, the extent of the minor’s injuries in an accident can be difficult to ascertain. Since children are oftentimes still developing at the time they are involved in their accident, it can be difficult to determine the full extent of a child’s injuries (especially with regard to serious head and brain injuries) until several years have passed.
At Red Deer Personal Injury Law, our experienced legal team can work with both you and your injured child as soon as your child begins treatment. We can also maintain close contact with your child’s healthcare providers and make sure that your child is receiving all of the medical care necessary for their full recovery.
