Common Child Injuries

Children are enthusiastic about life and we know that parents strive to protect their children from harm.  Sustaining minor bumps and bruises is a common occurrence. However, when negligence plays a role in serious child injuries, you may be entitled to compensation to help cover past and future medical bills, your lost wages, the lost earning potential of your child, as well as your child’s pain and suffering. Child injuries that may lead to a liability claim include:

What Damages Are Available for Child Injuries?

Potential damages will depend on the nature and extent of your child’s injuries. They may include:

  • Past and future medical expenses related to the accident
  • Home modifications and medical equipment
  • Diminished earning capacity if the accident caused long-term disability
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Disfigurement
  • Disability

How Do Child Injury Claims Differ from Adult Injury Claims?

In many ways, pursuing compensation for injuries sustained by a child is similar to pursuing compensation for adults. One major difference between child and adult personal injury claims is that all settlements on behalf of minors in Mississippi must be approved by the chancery court.

The court is particular about settlement agreements for minors and is focused on ensuring that the settlement is in the best interest of the child. The court has the power to reject settlement proposals and may require that the settlement money be held in a restricted bank account. The court may also require an annual accounting to ensure that the funds are being used for child.
