My child is only three months old. How can someone so young file a lawsuit?
The answer is that a three-month-old cannot file a lawsuit on their own, but would require the child's "guardian ad litem" to file a lawsuit. Your birth defects lawyer knows how to prepare a petition to have the court appoint you as your child's "guardian ad litem." The lawsuit will be filed in your name, but only as the child's representative.
