1 vehicular accident involving minor on Tue Sep 06, 2011 12:50 am

hello po.

i need your advice.

My 6 year old son was hit by a motorcycle driven by a 14 year old & without a license. His upper right lip was damaged. As per his plastic surgeon, it will take time for the scar to flatten, maybe 1 year before she can continue the therapy. Right now, I can sense that my son is shy, he lost his confident.

What should I do? What case should be filed? Can I demand for moral damages?

Btw, all the hospital bill was paid by my insurance company.

only a civil case for damages can prosper because he is below 15. you can claim for actual damages that the insurance did not cover, and for future costs with doctor's requirement and full quotation. moral damages are also possible.
