Importantly, we work with the family to carefully comply with the Minor Settlement Rules which exist in both Minnesota and Wisconsin to ensure that any payment made to the child is both adequate and appropriate under the circumstances. This often involves working with a Guardian ad Litem whose job is to look out for the child’s best interests. We help the family and Guardian either choose an appropriate annuity or financial institution for the child’s settlement money so that the funds will be there for any future medical care until the child reaches adulthood.
Several members of our team have had their own children severely injured in car wrecks. We understand how important an injured child is to their family, and we know how to best maximize the child’s economic recovery. We work with the child’s doctors, family, teachers and coaches to better understand the impact the injury has had on the child.
