Best Answer

You must be the age of majority established by the state of residency before you can sue or be sued. The age of majority in most states is 18, in Alabama and Nebraska it is 19, in Mississippi and Pennsylvania it is 21. The parent(s) or legal guardian of a minor can file a lawsuit on his/her behalf. A minor's parents or legal guardian in some instances can be sued for damages the minor may have caused. The majority of states have laws regarding the monetary recovery that the parent(s) or guardian can be held responsible for and establish the conditions under which a lawsuit of this type can be inititated.
