Minor children who lose a parent may be entitled to damages for loss of compensation, instruction and guidance. Furthermore, minor children are entitled to damages for loss of support and companionship.
In the event of a recovery, courts will typically order a guardian to be assigned to any minor children who are awarded monetary damages. The purpose of the appointment of a guardian, and the accompanying guardianship, is to provide protection of the interest of the minor child and will often dictate how any monetary settlement received by the minor is to are distributed. The guardian, under the authority and approval of the Court, will keep the minor’s settlement in trust, disbursing settlement funds only for those necessities authorized by the court. More information concerning the powers and restrictions associated with a guardianship can be answered by an attorney that specializes in guardianship law.
