Parents may collect for injuries on behalf of a minor child

Experienced Maryland personal injury attorneys can help parents or guardians recovery money for injuries suffered by their children in automobile accidents. Whether or not the parent a guardian was involved in the car crash that injured the child is irrelevant to whether a parent/guardian can collect on behalf of the minor child.

Maryland children injured in automobile accidents have the right to recover monetary damages from one of three sources. A knowledgeable personal injury attorney will know how to collect from: 1) The driver of the vehicle in which they were riding. 2) The driver of the vehicle which struck them 3) Their parent/guardian’s automobile insurance. A parent or guardian need not be involved in the accident which caused their child’s injuries in order to collect monies on their behalf.
