We are frequently asked about settlement amounts in personal injury cases involving minor children.
In Florida, a minor child must have a parent or legal guardian in order to pursue a personal injury case. If the minor child’s personal injury case settles for more than $15,000.00, the parent or legal guardian must get the court’s approval before the offer can be accepted.
Personal injury settlements can be tricky in cases that involve a minor child so please make sure to talk to an attorney before signing anything.
