Can a child file a lawsuit on their own?

Can I Sue My Friend that Drove Recklessly and Injured Me as a Passenger?

The short answer is that, yes, you can sue your friend if you were injured as a passenger in their vehicle due to their negligence.  However, there are exceptions to this rule. 

In California, if the vehicle was driven by a resident relative – someone you live with who is covered under the same insurance – the auto insurance company will not allow a claim against that driver.  Otherwise, the driver is treated as responsible for the injuries that result from his negligence regardless of whether you were a passenger, another driver, or someone on the street.  Watch the video to learn more.
