My son had a root canal this morning as a result of a broken tooth. His medicaid insurance will cover the cost of the root canal and crown but i will be losing my health insurance in 30 days and my s son will be without it until i gain employment with a company offering benefits or purchase an individual policy. My son will need at least one replacement crown in the next five years since his jaw is still growing. Additionally, this is his front tooth and will require maintenance for the rest of his life. A bill he would not have incurred if this child had not hit him. Can i proceed with a civil claim for future costs we/he will incur to maintain the crown. Honestly, i'm more concerned that the parents learn a lesson in social responsibility since they dont' feel they are responsible.
