Accidents Involving Children
Every accident is serious, but personal injury cases involving children need to be handled differently from those involving adults. Children who are injured in car accidents and other accidents in New York may need compensation that lasts for years, in addition to compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering, and other costs.
