As a parent or guardian there are probably few things as upsetting as seeing your child hurt or injured. When this happens you need GA Solicitors’ child accident claims and personal injury team on your side.
Children often get into scrapes and pick up minor bumps and bruises; sometimes however something more serious happens. This could be an accident at school, whilst on a school trip, in a playground or even being hurt by a faulty toy or product.
A parent or guardian can make a claim for compensation on behalf of an injured child as soon as the accident happens and up until the child reaches 18 years old. Once an injured child becomes an adult at 18, they must make a claim themselves within three years.
Claims relating to children are dealt with in much the same way as if the victim was an adult. You can find out more specific information using the links below:
