Children’s Personal Injury Claims

The worst injuries are those that happen to innocent children. In Pennsylvania, there are a number of special rules governing the handling and settling of children’s claims. The Statute of Limitations can be affected, court approval might be needed for settlements, trusts might need to be set up, and special rules of negligence can apply. The extra rules and work involved can make even simple cases complex and time-consuming.
