In cases where compensation is being offered to children following accidents or injuries resulting from someone else’s mistake, the outcome might seem difficult to predict. The team at Octagon Legal can provide you clear, supportive and unbiased guidance through this process.
Because a child is not legally able to decide whether compensation being offered is fair, a Court must make that determination. Whatever your role in the potential settlement, we can advise you, based on our long experience in such cases, as to whether the offer is a reasonable one and whether or not the Court is likely to accept it.
Octagon Legal can also draft any documentation or language necessary for an infant settlement hearing, and represent the child at the hearing to make sure a fair order is made.
