My child was injured in a car accident. Can I file a lawsuit on her behalf?

 

A:

Yes. You can recover medical expenses, payable to you if you were the one paying the bills, but you only have five years to do so from the date of the accident.  Your child can also recover for her pain and suffering, but there are special rules for how settlements are handled for minors and how monies are held/distributed.
