My son's friend pushed him off the sidewalk into the path of an oncoming vehicle. Who is liable?

Frequently Asked Question Video for Wisconsin Personal Injury

In Wisconsin if your son and his friend are fooling around and he gets pushed into the path of an oncoming vehicle, it is possible that you can recover from that child’s parent although there are limitations on the amount of money that you can recover. In Wisconsin those limitations are generally $5,000. If the individual that does the actual pushing is greater than 14 years old, you can possibly recover from that individual if they have any assets.
