Many tort claims that are brought involve children. Children, in general, are given a favored status in the law, meaning that they have special protection.

Children between the ages of 7 and 14 are generally presumed to be incapable of committing negligence, although that presumption can be rebutted with the presentation of evidence showing that the child is capable of committing a negligent act because of his or her intelligence level, experience level, or other factors that may bear on that.
