Can you sue a minor?

This is a question that many people ask themselves when they are thinking about suing. The answer to these questions varies depending on the state where you live, as well as what your relationship is with the minor.

In general, minors are not able to be sued by adults because of their lack of legal capacity and authority. However, there are exceptions to this rule- for example, if the child was driving an automobile at the time of an accident or has caused injury or death due to negligence while working in a business setting.

Conclusion: If minors have been involved in any type of litigation, it’s important that you consult with an attorney so that they can provide guidance on whether or not you will be able to get damages for your injuries or losses.

You may also want to ask the child’s parents about their involvement in the case before proceeding with anything else regarding a lawsuit against them.
