Tort/Negligence – Medical Malpractice – Civil Practice – Standing – Juvenile Patient – Medical Expenses – Other Damages (access required)

Cue-McNeil v. Watt. The trial court correctly held that the minor plaintiff cannot sue for medical expenses; however, the plaintiff-mother can sue for her daughter's medical expenses. Moreover, the mother has been appointed as guardian for the minor plaintiff, and, through her guardian, the minor plaintiff can sue for other damages she has suffered. We affirm in part and vacate in part the trial court's grant of partial summary judgment for the defendant-doctor.
