During a bad snow day, my daughters school bus ran up a curb, tore down live power lines, and bumped into another school bus on the opposite curb. My daughter endured a wrist injury documented by an orthopedist.
My question is this: Will her settlement go into Probate until she is of legal age, or will the settlement go to her parents for her present needs? She is in need of silly things: a bed frame, dresser, and cloths. While I am her mother, and did provide my time, money, transportation for her care, I could care less about the money ~ except that I could make her life a little nicer now. Still, with that, if the money does go to Probate, what about the bills, and attorney fees? Are they just expected to wait until she is 18, or will I have be responsible for them now?
