A minor caused my injury. Do parents and/or their insurance have to pay my claim?


Many assume that parents and their insurance carriers must pay for any personal injury caused by minor children. It is not a given that parents or their insurance will be responsible to pay for injures caused by minor children. Whether the parents and their insurance company will have to pay your personal injury claim will depend on the details of your case. It is best to consult with an attorney.
