A serious accident or injury can take a devastating toll on the life of the victim. Not only must accident victims contend with painful injuries, but their quality of life is often affected as well. A once independently functioning person may suddenly be unable to work, drive a car, or even walk and talk. If you have been injured in some type of accident in Suffolk County, Nassau County, Queens, Brooklyn or New York City, you should speak with a personal injury lawyer who can review your claim and help you assert your legal rights to compensation. With the help of a highly skilled personal injury lawyer from Young & Young, LLP, you will have a much better chance of successfully recovering damages for your injuries, lost wages, medical treatment, and pain and suffering.

New York Laws Regarding Injury to a Minor
In New York State, if a person is under the age of 18, he or she is considered a minor, not an adult. Minors cannot sign legal documents, and if a minor is injured in an accident, then his or her parent(s) or legal guardian(s) is responsible to retain an attorney in order to make a claim for that minor's injury and to bring a lawsuit on behalf of the minor. The law states that a minor's interests must be protected, and a minor's personal injury claim cannot be settled without the bringing of a lawsuit. Such a lawsuit is not handled in the same way as a lawsuit for an injured adult.
When filing an injury-to-a-minor case, there are specific rules that must be followed, and certain documents that must be filed and submitted to the court. Any settlements that are to be paid on behalf of an injured minor must be approved during a hearing at the courthouse. Such a hearing is called an infant compromise and generally includes an appearance by the attorney and the minor, with his or her parent(s) / guardian(s) in attendance, before the judge handling the case. At Young & Young, LLP we have experience handling infant compromise cases. We are familiar with the effort needed to successfully obtain a settlement offer and we know how to compose and process all documents necessary to submit to the court for approval.
