Hello. I will try to assist you today. I recommend that you pursue personal injury claims against the minor and the minor's parents.

You can try proving the liability of the parent for the negligent act of their child. Traditionally, the parents will have immunity over the acts committed by their children. However, there are exceptions to this rule. Sometimes the parents of the child can be forced to pay for the claims. The plaintiff must prove that the parents of the defendant willfully and negligently allowed and permitted the child to injure you.

In common law, parents are only liable for the act of their child when at the time of the tort, the child is under the direct supervision and control of the parent. In such cases, the complainant can file negligence on the part of the parent and not on the child. Parents may also be held liable, if the injury caused by the child had previously been committed and the parents failed or still allowed it to happen again. In these cases, the court can order the child’s parent to pay for the injury caused by the child.

Hope that helps. Please remember to accept my response and post a positive rating.

This juvenile that had assaulted me it happened at my job in emergency room. I am being paid workman's comp and so far they've been paying my bills. I received a call from the city attorney's office saying they just they want file for a continuance for dismissal because of his mental illness. Can I pursue charges against the parent? Especially when I'm having severe medical problems due to this concussion
Personal Injury Lawyer: Lori, Attorney replied 1 month ago

I doubt that you can pursue criminal charges against the parents - only civil damages for negligence. You may be able to recover pain and suffering and emotional distress in such a negligence claim (which you are not receiving from worker's comp).
