Even once that hurdle is cleared, injury claims involving children have the added complication of structured settlements, designed to keep your child's money safe until they come of age. For any even remotely serious injury, you're much better off working with an experienced child injury lawyer to make the claim process go smoothly and successfully for you and your family, while you focus on taking care of your child.
