If you are a parent, you know there is nothing more painful and upsetting than knowing another person’s negligence or wrongdoing has harmed your child. Child accident injuries can cause physical, emotional, and financial strain for you and your family and may lead to lifelong complications.

Types of Child Injuries

Florida law states that children injured by another person’s negligent or reckless behavior have the right to pursue legal action against the at-fault party. 

Our child accident lawyers have vast experience filing claims in various child injury situations, including:

Florida Child Injury Laws

The Orlando child injury lawyers at Farah & Farah have been fighting on behalf of victims for over 40 years. We understand the complex circumstances that may lead to a child’s injury and the laws that address those cases. 

 

Some specific Florida laws include:

Right to pursue legal action: Children have the right to seek damages in a personal injury claim, but the claim must be brought by the child’s guardian or “next friend.” Parents can also file a separate claim in the same case.

 

Comparative negligence: When determining fault, lawyers and insurance companies may argue that the child’s own negligence contributed to the accident. Children under six years old cannot be considered negligent. If the child wins compensation, the percentage of fault they are said to have will be deducted from the overall amount.

 

Trespassing: Children injured while trespassing can still seek damages if the property owner knew of the hazardous condition but did not address it. For example, if a child is injured or drowns in a swimming pool that was not fenced.

 

Car accidents: Drivers must secure children five and younger in a federally approved restraint device. Children from six to 18 must wear seatbelts. Exceptions exist for commercial trucks, school buses, and other vehicles.

 

Guardian ad litem: The court can appoint a guardian ad litem to protect the child’s interest if their settlement is over $15,000. If the compensation is over $50,000, the court must appoint a guardian ad litem.
