Minors involved in personal injury accidents are entitled to obtain a rightful settlement but they lack the ability to enter into a written contract for that settlement. For this purpose, a petition is needed either by the parent or by the legal guardian in order to confirm that the settlement is final. This is known as the minor’s compromise and, in fact, it is not a compromise to the settlement amount but rather a formal acknowledgment made not by the minor but by a consenting adult. One of our Los Angeles personal injury attorneys can help you during this stage if your minor child was involved in an accident.
