Unique Considerations for Accident Cases Involving Minors

The immediate and long-term impact of an event or incident on a child must be considered in all personal injury and medical negligence cases involving children. In cases involving common childhood injuries such as fractures or closed head injuries, it is crucial that the injuries be assessed to determine their future impact on the child as he or she matures into adulthood. 

Long-term ramifications of injuries on the growth, development and mental well-being of children are often overlooked and it is our goal to detect and assess all of the current and potential complications that have resulted from each injury and could manifest themselves later on in life.

As Illinois accident attorneys who represent babies, infants and toddlers in different forms of medical negligence and personal injury scenarios, Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers are always mindful of how injuries may impact the child in the future, and regularly seek out some of the leading specialists in the fields of pediatric neurology, orthopedics and neuro-psychology to assist in fully assessing our clients’ strengths and deficits. 

Going the extra step for our personal injury cases involving children, frequently means the difference between an excellent recovery that can truly help a child receive the care that they may require to live a meaningful life.

I was horrified when my son was hit by a car while riding his bike. I called Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers on a weekend afternoon and they were willing to meet with my family that day. Everything they did was first class and done with my son’s best interests at heart.

Watchful Eyes of the Illinois Courts Going the Extra Step to Protect Children in Personal Injury and Medical Negligence Settlements

All Illinois verdicts and settlements involving cases for minors exceeding small amounts must be approved by a judge to ensure the fairness of the settlement. In most child injury cases, an estate or trust is opened where the funds are held in an interest bearing account until the child reaches the age of majority or until the disability has been lifted. This is an additional procedural step, but it is just one more way in which the law works to protect innocent children from harm and deceit perpetrated by caregivers.
