Child Accident Claims

It is not uncommon for a child to suffer an injury as they’re growing up. Most parents will have wiped away tears from a youngster who has suffered a cut, bruise or other injury caused by them not being steady on their feet or hurting themselves while playing. In these cases, there is nobody to blame. However, if a child has been seriously or significantly injured through the fault of somebody else, you may be able to make a claim on their behalf.

Our expert solicitors have helped many parents whose children have been injured at school, on the road or on holiday to make a claim for damages. Contact us today by calling 0333 323 5292, or fill in the contact form on this page to let us know a convenient time to call you.

Common accidents

Many parents and guardians are not aware that they can make a claim on their child’s behalf until they are 18 years old. Injuries can be sustained in a number of ways and we have handled cases involving the following:

  • Accidents at school, nursery or college
  • Road traffic accidents
  • Accidents in a public place
  • Injuries caused by defective products
  • Slips, trips and falls
  • Injuries suffered on holiday

Claims cannot be made by a parent or guardian if the accident was their fault, for example, if a father is responsible for a road accident, they are unable to make a claim on their child’s behalf, but a mother or grandparent could act in their place.

What does compensation cover?

Our experienced lawyers understand the problems that can be faced when a child is injured, and will work to get you and your family the compensation you deserve. We can help to get a financial payout for the following expenses:

  • Education
  • Care and treatment
  • Rehabilitation
  • Loss of earnings
  • Adaptations to the home
  • Transportation requirements
  • Pain and suffering

If your child has been injured in an accident that wasn’t their fault, you should speak to a personal injury expert today for comprehensive advice on your situation.
