If your child has been injured in an accident, it is worth contacting Hampson Hughes child injury lawyers who can advise you and your family on the relevant legal options. Child accident compensation may be available if your child has been injured in an accident that was not his or her fault. Under UK law, children under the age of 18 are not permitted to begin the claims process.
This means that in the case of child accident claims, an adult must be appointed to act on the child’s behalf. If you wish to act on behalf of a child in relation to a child injury compensation claim, get in touch with our team of personal injury lawyers with experience in child accident claims. You can speak to us today.
If your child has been injured due to the negligence and lack of care of others then just like an adult, your children can claim child personal injury compensation. People often expect children to fall over and gain injuries, but that does not mean that these accidents are their own fault and therefore, they can be compensated for.
Children are often injured in accidents through no fault of their own. If you’re a parent or guardian with a child or even your baby that has been injured in an accident that wasn’t their fault, you can make a personal injury claim for compensation for them. Alternatively, the child can wait till they’re 18 to claim themselves.
Each year, in excess of one million children under the age of 15 are treated in Accident & Emergency departments following an injury. 40,000 of these injuries relate to children under the age of 5. Some of the more common types of child injury compensation claims involve injuries such as:
If you believe that your child has suffered an injury due to negligence on behalf of a public facility, school, playgroup, manufacturer, distributor, supplier, retailer or any other responsible party, you should speak to our specialist team of personal injury solicitors today.
The exact amount for a child injury compensation claim will vary, depending on factors such as the level of injury and the level of any negligence that can be shown. To get an initial idea, you can enter the details of your child injury claim into our compensation calculator for an estimate – just remember it is only an estimate.
