All settlements of cases involving minors (or others under a legal disability) require court approval. This is to protect the child to ensure:
- The settlement appears appropriate relative to the injury and precedent cases; and
- The legal fees and expenses charged by your child’s lawyer are fair and appropriate in the circumstances.
An experienced Ontario child personal injury lawyer knows what steps to take to ensure that the proper approval of the settlement is obtained. Need help with your child’s injury claim? Contactus at 613 233-4529 or by email at [email protected].
