You would need to sue the parents or legal guardian of the minor in the proper court of venue, if you win and are awarded a judgment, generally a judgment can by executed against the property of the losing defendant(s). Bear in mind that depending on the specific circumstances, most states have a specific amount that can be recovered in lawsuits naming minor defendant and their parent(s) or guardian, ususally making it a small claims case.
