Q:
Ifeel responsiblefor my child's accident because I should have been watching her more closely. Does this automatically mean that my child has no case against a third party for their role in the accident?

A:
The short answer to this question is "no." New York's courts have long held that a parent's negligent supervision of their own child will not act as a bar to a claim against others for their respective negligence in causing the child's personal injuries.
