the collision was not made okay by her apology after the fact. The young plaintiff recovered fully from her injuries, and we were able to obtain a fair settlement for the child. That settlement was deposited in a blocked account. When the minor turns 18, she can go into the bank, show her ID and retrieve the settlement funds. In extreme need situations, parents or guardians may file motions in court to get the money early, if it can be demonstrated that the money is needed in specific ways for the benefit of the child.
