What a Child Injury Case
Means in Personal Injury Law

In personal injury law, a child’s injury means that the victim is under 18 years of age at the time of the incident. This means that any child accident compensation received must be used for their benefit until they reach adulthood.


In California, claims made on behalf of children are subject to specific rules and regulations to ensure proper care and support for young victims of negligence or malpractice. Childhood injuries can have a lasting impact, more so if these are caused by somebody else who should have been more mindful and responsible. We are dedicated to helping families get the justice and compensation their young ones deserve.


RTM Law Firm is an experienced and dedicated law firm that knows how to handle child injury cases. We not only understand the legal process, but also the emotional aspects of these complex cases.

Child Accidents and Wrongful Death

If an accident in California results in a child's death, it is a profoundly tragic situation, and the legal implications can be complex. Here's what typically happens in such cases:

Wrongful Death Claim

The parents or legal guardians of the deceased child may file a wrongful death lawsuit. This type of claim seeks compensation for the family’s loss, including funeral and burial expenses, lost future financial support, and loss of love, companionship, and guidance.

Who Can File for Wrongful Death?

In California, the right to file a wrongful death claim is typically limited to immediate family members, such as parents or legal guardians of the deceased child.

Statute of Limitations

There is a specific time frame within which a wrongful death claim must be filed. In California, this is generally two years from the date of the child’s death. It’s crucial to file within this period to maintain the right to seek legal redress.

Potential Damages

Compensation in wrongful death cases can include both economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages cover tangible losses like medical bills incurred before death and funeral expenses. Non-economic damages address the more intangible aspects, like the loss of the child’s companionship and emotional support.

Criminal Charges for the Wrongful Death of a Child

If the death was caused by someone’s intentional act or gross negligence, there might also be criminal charges against the responsible party. This is separate from a civil wrongful death claim and is handled by the state’s criminal justice system.

Legal Representation

Seek legal counsel from an attorney experienced in wrongful death claims, particularly those involving children. They can navigate the complex web of filing a claim while providing support and working to ensure the family receives just compensation.

Emotional Support

Beyond the legal aspects, the loss of a child is emotionally devastating. Families are encouraged to seek emotional support from professional counselors, support groups, or community organizations specialized in grieving support.

Victim of an accident caused by someone else?

California Child Injury Attorney: FAQs

Here are some of the most frequently asked questions about our personal injury law firm in California.

What qualifies as a child injury case in California?

Various types of child injury cases involve physical or psychological harm to a minor (under 18 years) due to accidents, negligence, abuse, or product defects. This can include car accidents, playground injuries, school-related incidents, or defective toys. To qualify for a child injury lawsuit or claim, the injury must have been caused by someone’s negligence or wrongful conduct.

How does a child injury claim differ from an adult injury claim?

Child personal injury cases often require a more sensitive approach, considering the child’s age and the long-term impact of the injury. The statute of limitations for filing a claim may also differ, as it often extends until the child turns 18. This is why working with an experienced California child injury lawyer is to your family’s advantage.

What is the role of a California child injury lawyer in these cases?

A California child injury lawyer specializes in legal cases involving minors. Such a lawyer helps navigate the complex legal system, advocate for the child’s rights, and seek appropriate compensation for injuries.

The lawyer helps protect the child’s interests and privacy during the claim or lawsuit proceedings, ensuring that  no further harm (physical, emotional, or mental) is done to the child and their family in the process. The lawyer also has experience dealing with insurance companies and other stakeholders in the state of California, helping the family receive a fair settlement or verdict that takes into account all aspects of their case.

How is the injury settlement calculated in child accident injury and negligence cases?

Compensation typically covers medical expenses, pain and suffering, future medical care, and, in some cases, punitive damages. The amount depends on the type of accident, severity of the injury, its long-term effects, and the circumstances of the incident.

Can a parent or guardian file a lawsuit on behalf of the injured child?

Yes, a parent or legal guardian can file a lawsuit on behalf of a minor. The court may appoint a guardian ad litem to ensure the child’s interests are adequately represented. A top-rated California child injury lawyer can help ensure that the child’s rights are protected and negotiate a fair settlement or verdict.

What is the statute of limitations for child injury cases?

In California, the statute of limitations for child injury claims typically extends until the child turns 18. However, the specific time limit can vary depending on the case type, so it’s essential to consult a specialized accident attorney for accurate information.

What should I look for when choosing a child injury lawyer?

Look for a California child injury attorney with experience in child injury cases, a track record of success, sensitivity to the needs of children and families, and a thorough understanding of California’s legal system regarding child injuries. Personal recommendations and reviews can also be helpful.
