Is an attorney needed to file a claim or lawsuit for a child | Shapiro, Washburn & Sharp

There is no law which requires a victim to hire a person al injury attorney to represent them in an injury claim or lawsuit, however, unless injuries were very minor, these cases can become complex, especially when they involve a minor child.

It is not uncommon for an insurance company to try to settle these cases as quickly and cheaply as possible, playing on parents’ emotions and offering them settlements far less than what the family deserves. By retaining the services of a personal injury attorney, you can be assured that attorney will work diligently to protect the rights of your child and family against the insurance company.
