Personal Injury

Can You File an Injury Claim for Someone Else?

Most personal injury claims are filed by the people who were hurt. Common examples include car accident victims suing to get compensation after negligent drivers hurt them, or patients suing for compensation after being harmed by negligent healthcare providers.

But sometimes, injured victims aren’t capable of suing someone or something on their own. This can include minors, people who have sustained serious traumatic brain injuries, people with Alzheimer’s and other debilitating cognitive conditions, and people with developmental challenges. In addition, it can also include victims who died as a result of their injuries (wrongful death lawsuits).

As with an injury claim that you’re filing on behalf of yourself, filing a claim for someone else requires evidence and the assistance of an experienced Roanoke personal injury lawyer. At Skolrood Law Firm, we’re well equipped to help your loved one get the compensation they’re owed for the injuries they suffered.

We know that not all victims are capable of filing lawsuits on their own, whether it’s due to pre-existing conditions or injury-related disabilities. That’s why our services are open to the people who care about them the most—their parents, spouses, children, grandchildren, and other close family members. When you call our firm, we’ll take the time to get to know you, your injured loved one, and the rest of your family, so that we can better help you move forward with your lives.
