Frequently Asked Questions

Though you’re free to act on behalf of your child as a litigation guardian, you likely don’t understand personal injury, negligence, and medical malpractice law like we do. Due to their complicated natures, having an experienced attorney on your side will help maximize your compensation potential and relieve much of the stress of claims and litigation.

A pediatric injury can take many forms, but it always involves physical or emotional harm to a minor under the age of 18. Whether a serious injury was accidental or intentional, if negligence was involved by the action or inaction of others, those parties may be held accountable.

It’s crucial to move swiftly with your child’s injury claim. Inform your accident benefits insurance company within 7 days of the injury and send a written notice of the claim served to any involved parties within 60 days. 

You don’t have an indefinite period to file claims, though it is extended in the case of a child injury. It’s important to act swiftly, as claims are still subject to Ontario’s basic statute of limitations and can take several years to conclude. Generally, you have 2 years from the accident date to file a suit against any at-fault parties, but for a minor under the age of 18, that 2-year period doesn’t begin until they reach age 18.
