Who can bring a legal claim on behalf of an injured child? Do I have to be the child’s mother or father?

Who can bring a legal claim on behalf of an injured child? Do I have to be the child’s mother or father?

A: Any interested party can do so. You do not have to be the injured child’s mother or father. You can be a relative of almost any degree. You can even be a family friend or some other non-related adult who is responsible and has a connection to the injured child. Before you can bring a legal claim, you must petition the court to be appointed the child’s “guardian ad litem.” Only then will Florida law allow you to file a legal claim for a child.
