    Compensation for a kid’s head injury

    As a parent, you will know how worrying it can be when your child falls ill. The same applies if they are injured, and head injuries specifically can cause concern. A kid’s head injury could happen in many ways. Sometimes, a child may fall and hit their head on the ground, or on the way down. In other instances, something might strike them on the head and potentially cause injury.

    We’re all familiar with concussion, and while not all head injuries lead to this, some end up being worse. Proper medical treatment should always be sought if your child has been knocked out or is exhibiting any unusual symptoms, such as confusion, fluid leaking from the nose or ears or anything else that worries you. As the parent, you have a right to seek reassurance if you are worried about anything of this nature.

    Where might a kid’s head injury occur?

    Schools are very safe for our kids, but accidents could potentially happen there just as they can anywhere else. Fortunately, health and safety rules, if followed properly, usually prevent things from going wrong. If something happens and those rules weren’t followed, a compensation claim could be more likely to be a success.

    Of course, the first thing to do will be to seek medical care for your child. Not only does this ensure they are treated properly, it also ensures you have a proper record of their injury and symptoms. This could be used later to help support a case you may make.

    Can we offer you advice?

    We can, just as we have advised many others over the years. Many people turn to Accident Advice Helpline when they need advice on such matters, including a kid’s head injury. If your child has sustained an injury – even if it was some time ago – there could still be time to claim. Anyone under the age of 18 can make a claim at any point until three years after their 18th birthday, so you may claim today if they fall within that bracket, even if it has been some time since they were injured.
