How can I claim compensation for my child’s injury?
You might be able to claim compensation if your child has suffered an injury that wasn’t their fault, or if you yourself suffered an injury that wasn’t your fault before the age of 18. Often serious injuries are caused by traffic accidents, incidents at school or in public places, or medical negligence.
Our expert lawyers understand that the process of winning compensation for child injury claims is difficult as some injuries have long lasting complications that arise later in life. That’s why our team ensures a child’s injury is fully investigated, postponing the claim process until the extent of the injuries has been fully established.
In cases where child personal injury claims have to be delayed, our dedicated lawyers will support you to make sure you understand the process, keeping you up to date with any information. Your assigned child injury lawyer will also work to secure you an early interim compensation payout to help with any immediate costs.
How do I make a child injury claim?
Our specialist personal injury solicitors are experts in child injury claims and can talk through your situation with you over the phone, or face to face if you prefer. We can provide you with some initial free advice to help you decide if you wish to proceed with making a claim.
We understand that winning compensation can make things easier with some injuries requiring people to travel for treatment or make alternations in their homes. Our dedicated team will do everything they can to ensure your family’s life can return to normal as soon as possible.
As well as providing sensitive advice and support to you and your child, our child injury solicitors can put you in touch with a number of organisations who can help you with everything from rehabilitation to counselling and providing support for the whole family.
No win no fee child injury claims
Many child personal injury claims are eligible for a no win no fee funding agreement, which means:
- If you win your case your opponent will pay the majority of your legal costs. Any legal costs not paid by your opponent and the lawyer’s success fee will be deducted from the compensation that you receive.
- If you lose your case, you won’t pay anything.
When can I make a child personal injury claim?
As the parent or guardian of a child, you can make a personal injury claim on their behalf. Alternatively, you can wait until they reach the age of 18 and they can then pursue the claim themselves. When a child turns 18, they have three years to pursue a personal injury claim for compensation.
Speak to us as soon as you can, so our personal injury lawyers can start helping you through the process of claiming compensation and getting any other support you need.
How much compensation could I receive from a child personal injury claim?
Every injury is different, so it is important to get expert advice from lawyers who really understand the unique nature of each personal injury claim.
The amount you can claim will depend on a number of factors, such as the severity of the injury, as well as any financial losses you have suffered or lifestyle changes you have made as a result. Our specialist personal injury solicitors have the experience to ensure you get the compensation you deserve.
