Probate Approvals for Minors and Estates

John Fleming presented the settlement of a minor’s injury claim to the court, for approval, based upon payment of all medical bills for the minor’s injury, and payment of a small amount for the pain and suffering damages for the minor. The court approved the settlement in order to resolve the claim against the Defendants.

Abigail facilitated the probate court approval process of a settlement for the benefit of a minor.  This case involved a motor vehicle accident where a minor individual sustained personal injuries.  The insurance company was able to reach a settlement agreement with the parent of the minor for the child’s injuries prior to any filed lawsuit.   Abigail opened an estate with the courts for the limited purpose of approving this settlement and appointing a guardian for the minor’s estate.  The probate approval process ensures that the court reviews the injuries of the minor, approves the settlement figures and that the funds are placed in an account until the child reaches majority.
