Can I Bring a Personal Injury Claim on Behalf of a Child in Arizona? 

Almost nothing is scarier than learning that your child has been hurt in an accident. Children are vulnerable to accidents, because they can’t always protect themselves. When someone else caused your child to be hurt, either because of carelessness or wrongful behavior, you might be asking yourself, “Can I bring a personal injury claim on behalf of a child in Arizona?”

The good news is that you can bring a claim in Arizona on behalf of your child if you can show that someone else’s negligence caused the accident.

Types of Arizona Accidents Children Could Be Hurt In

Children often get hurt, but not every injury will permit you to file a personal injury claim. For instance, if your child falls off of the swing in your backyard, you probably can’t file a claim against someone. Only if another person caused your child’s injury can you bring a claim against them.

For instance, if your child was injured in an auto wreck caused by a drunk driver, you could file a claim on behalf of your child.

Here are a few more types of accidents children are often harmed in.

  • Sports accidents
  • Playground accidents
  • Injuries at school
  • Injuries during extracurricular activities
  • Assault or abuse
  • Injuries from defective products
  • Property hazards
  • Accidents on field trips
  • Dog bites

Damages for Your Child’s Accident

You and your child could be dealing with extensive losses, and you’re entitled to financial compensation for all that you’ve suffered. Here are examples of damages when a child gets hurt.

  • Pain and suffering
  • Medical expenses
  • Mental and emotional trauma
  • Issues with your child’s development
  • Scarring or disfigurement
  • Your lost wages (and your child’s, if they’re employed)
