Can I sue if my child had been burned?

If your child has suffered a burn injury, he or she is entitled to the same protections as an adult. These cases are handled in much the same way as if an adult had been injured with a few exceptions. One of those exceptions is who pursues the claim. In these types of cases, you will pursue the claim on your child's behalf as their guardian or their next friend. Another distinction is the statute of limitations. For clients involving manners, the statute of limitations is told until their 18th birthday and does not begin running until that date.
