Sawicki & Phelps, P.A.--Representing Children's Interests in Northern Minnesota, Western Wisconsin, and Minneapolis and St. Paul

Children are particularly vulnerable, and unfortunately, the individuals who are responsible for them at school, camps, daycare, often do not exercise sufficient care and are negligent in their responsibility. This creates the perfect opportunity for an accident or other injury, such as:

  • School bus injury
  • Playground accidents
  • Dog bite and animal attack injury
  • Physical and sexual abuse
  • Defective product accidents--including those involving unsafe toys
  • Car accidents
  • Bike accidents
  • Wrongful death

Children have no legal right to bring any kind of personal injury claim if they are injured, so a parent or legal guardian must do so on their behalf. Any recovery made must be approved by the court, and the proceeds must be put in a trust and used only for the child's benefits. Our personal injury attorneys have helped create structured settlements for these claims that have tax benefits for the child, and make sure the money is there for them when they need it.

At Sawicki & Phelps, P.A., we have handled many cases involving personal injuries to children, and can help you recover for your child's injuries, whether the claim involves private school negligence or a neighbor's poorly maintained swing-set. Contact one of our personal injury lawyers to discuss the claim at 1-866-MN-LAW-4-U or 1-866-665-2948 during a free initial consultation.
