Lawsuits involving child injuries are distinct and complex. As children are unable to sign contracts, they cannot consent to a settlement independently. The Georgia legal system maintains oversight of the settlement process to safeguard a child’s rights, requiring judicial approval for most settlements. If a case proceeds to trial, additional protective measures are in place for the child. It often surprises parents that Georgia does not presume they always act in their child’s best interest.
Simultaneously, any awarded compensation belongs to the child, not the parents. Parents who cover medical expenses may be reimbursed for those costs. However, damages related to pain and suffering, or similar losses generally belong to the child. A skilled attorney can help families comprehend the distribution of settlements when a child is the injured party.
