Infant & Child Injuries


Advocating for your child in a time of need

When an infant sustains injuries due to the negligence of another party, they may be entitled to compensation similar to adults. However, the legal procedures for resolving such claims differ due to the involvement of the Public Guardian and Trustee of British Columbia.

Settlements for infants must be approved by the Public Guardian and Trustee, particularly for amounts exceeding $50,000. This involves a thorough review process, including written submissions detailing the circumstances of the accident, the extent of injuries, proposed compensation, and legal fees. Medical evidence supporting the claim is also essential.

Once approved, settlement funds are held in trust until the child reaches the age of 19. In cases where approval is not granted, recourse to court may be necessary. Additionally, procedural differences, such as the postponement of limitation periods and the requirement for a Litigation Guardian, further complicate the legal process.

Despite these complexities, seeking legal representation is crucial to ensure the best outcome for the injured child. At MacIsaac & Company, we specialize in representing infants with injuries ranging from minor to severe. Our team handles each case with compassion, professionalism, and a commitment to securing fair compensation for our clients.
