Can a child sue for traumatic brain injury or broken bones caused by a bouncy house?
When a child is injured, an adult can sue on the child’s behalf. Any money won in a settlement or verdict is put in trust for the child.
Can the owner of the bouncy house and the business that rented the bounce house be sued?
Yes, you may have the right to sue both the owner and the business that rented it when your child was hurt. This is an extremely important question, and you may also be able to sue the owner of the property and the manufacturer.
Can my child get money to compensate for physical pain and emotional distress?
Yes, if your child has a personal injury claim, he or she generally has the legal right to ask for money to compensate for physical pain and emotional distress. These are part of what is called “pain and suffering” and it also includes amounts for disability, disfigurement, and loss of quality of life.
Can I get compensated for the money I lost because I could not work?
Yes, in most cases a parent can get compensation for “lost income”.
