About Bay Area Legal Group

Children are afforded the same protections under California laws as adults. Yet, children are no less susceptible to injuries. If a child has been injured due to another person’s negligence, then the child’s guardian can seek claims on behalf of the child.

Elements of Negligence Cases

To prevail in a claim for injury, the injured party must prove he/she was harmed by defendant’s negligence. This includes establishing: 1) Defendant was negligent, 2) the child was injured, and 3) Defendant’s negligence was a substantial factor in causing the child’s injuries.

Recoverable Damages in Negligence Cases

Every case is unique so the damage calculations vary. However, there are certain categories of damages allowed in a personal injury claim concerning a child. These include:

  • Incurred Medical Bills
  • Costs of any future medical treatment
  • Lost capacity to earn wages in the future
  • Compensation for pain
  • Compensation for suffering or emotional distress.

Notably, victims could be entitled to additional damages, depending on the specific situations.
