A. A minor working at an age and at an occupation legally permitted shall be deemed of the age of majority for the purposes of this chapter, and no other person shall have any claim or right to compensation for an injury to such minor employee, but an award of a lump sum of compensation to the minor employee shall be paid only to his legally appointed guardian.
B. An injured minor who is working at an age and at an occupation which is not legally permitted is entitled to additional compensation in an amount equal to fifty per cent of the compensation the injured minor would otherwise receive pursuant to this chapter. If an insurance carrier is required to pay additional compensation pursuant to this subsection, the insurance carrier shall be subrogated and entitled to recover any such amounts paid from the employer.
