The Jurewitz Law Group Announces “Free Lawyers for Kids” Program
The Jurewitz Law Group is proud to announce that, as of January 2013, they are one of the first 11 law firms in the United States to offer free legal services to injured children as part of a new program called “Free Lawyers for Kids.”
How the Program Works
The Jurewitz Law Group will represent children without accepting any attorneys' fees for legal services, however the client is responsible for reimbursing any out-of-pocket expenses for litigation costs we may pay on their behalf. Your child may qualify for the "Free Lawyers for Kids" program under the following conditions:
• At the time of the accident, the child was 12 years old or younger
• An adult who was injured in the same accident is also being represented (typically a parent or relative)
• The child’s claim can be settled out of court without filing a lawsuit
For example, if a child younger than 12 years old is involved in the same vehicle accident as one or both parents, the parents may seek damages from the at-fault party on behalf of the injured child. The Jurewitz Law Group will investigate the accident and negotiate with the insurance company to reach a fair and just settlement, as well as represent the parents and the child during the court approval process. In order to obtain monetary reimbursement for a child under 18 years of age in California, a judge must first approve the settlement amount. If the claim can be settled without a lawsuit, the Jurewitz Law Group will not charge attorney fees for representing the child.
In 2011, Virginia personal injury attorney Ben Glass developed the program to help children who have been injured in car accidents receive the representation they deserve.
Protecting Injured Children
The personal injury attorneys at the Jurewitz Law Group have defended numerous families that have suffered traumatic losses due to an accident caused by a negligent party. The California-based law firm has a strong reputation for working one-on-one with clients to provide experienced and compassionate legal services.
