Can You Hold the Driver Who Caused the Crash Liable?

Before you even have a full picture of your child’s future, you may need to consider whether you can hold the at-fault driver responsible for your child’s current and future medical bills. Because a minor child cannot file a car accident claim or lawsuit in their own name in Virginia, you will have to do so on his behalf. Damages your child may be awarded include pain and suffering, emotional trauma, future medical care, permanent scarring or disfigurement, loss of enjoyment in life, and loss of the ability to earn future income. A personal injury attorney can work with you to establish the value of your child’s claim.
