Children are curious and eager to explore and try new things. Risk-taking is part of their everyday life and essential for their natural development. But inevitably this can also lead to accidents, which often result in injury.
If your child has sustained an injury as a result of an accident, you may be able to claim compensation on their behalf. If the accident could have been avoided or prevented, or was caused by someone else’s negligence, they are entitled to receive compensation for their injuries. Even if you think your child may have been partially to blame for the accident, you can still pursue a claim. Often more could have been done to prevent an accident from happening, meaning that someone else’s lack of care caused your child to be injured.
You can claim compensation for the pain and suffering caused by the accident as well as the effect upon your child’s everyday life and future development and education. You can also recover compensation for your financial losses incurred as a result of the accident. We can secure early compensation payments to ensure your child receives the best possible medical care and treatment to aid their recovery and alleviate any immediate financial worries.
In making a child accident claim, compensation could be recovered for:
- Medical and rehabilitation expenses
- The psychological effects of the accident and any specialist treatments needed
- The impact on your child’s future development and education
- Pain and suffering caused by the accident
- In the case of serious injuries, continued care and assistance for your child
- Your loss of earnings, if you had to take time off work to look after your child
We will deal with your child’s case with the understanding and sensitivity it deserves, making the process as stress-free as possible for you and your child. You can then focus on helping your child make the best possible recovery.
