The rules about making an accident claim are different than for adults because the child is too young to enter into a contract. Although laws vary by state, tenerally a child has a right to compensation for pain and suffering, permanent injury or disability, in the same way and for the same amounts as an adult. Also, legal liability fo accidents caused by minors is based on the same notion of care and carelessness as accidents caused by adults. However, the law applies different standards to different age groups.
