What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? ND
Just wondering if a parent can sue for pain and suffering for an injury to their child? We are in the process of settling a lawsuit for our child (nothing has been signed yet). All of the money will more than likely go to a structured settlement. However, we will continue to have out of pocket expenses and missed work. Plus we have been the ones who have been damaged thus far with emotional suffering. Our child's future is unsure. I quit working because daycare is too expensive for a special needs child and, in the end, I don't make enough money to break even.
Is it normal for a parent to sue for injury to THEMSELVES after a child's injury? Part of me hates asking the question because I don't want to appear greedy - but I do believe that my whole family has suffered greatly.
Thank you for your help.
