    Compensation for a car accident involving children

    The vast majority of car journeys end with the driver safely reaching their destination. Even though accidents occur on Britain’s roads every day, these are but a small percentage of the total journeys made by all those who travel in this way. Furthermore most pedestrians will be able to complete their intended journeys without incident if they take care to cross the road safely whenever they need to do so.

    Unfortunately some people will experience an accident during their lifetime. While the majority of such accidents are minor in nature, some will be more severe. In rare cases there have been incidents such as a car accident involving children. This might occur when a family is out on a journey and is involved in an accident which can be seen to be someone else’s fault. The circumstances regarding such accidents can change markedly depending on the situation.

    For example, you may be driving responsibly only for someone to pull out of a road in front of you, causing you to hit them because you have no time to stop. This is but one example of something that could occur on the roads that is the fault of someone else.

    How might a car accident involving children affect those involved?

    If you have been in a car with your children and someone else was negligent in their actions in order to cause an accident to occur, you may well suffer the after-effects of such an accident. For example, your children may be injured but they may also suffer mentally as a result of what happened. Nightmares and feelings of panic would not be unusual, and could potentially affect each child after the accident occurs. The severity of the accident may determine whether physical injuries are suffered during the experience.
