Toddlers are notoriously accident prone – they’re just at that age where they are exploring the world. As any mum (or dad) of a toddler knows, they’re into everything. Learning to walk, looking at the world around them and getting into scrapes is all part and parcel of growing up. But what if your toddler has suffered head injuries that you believe are somebody else’s fault?
Working out who is to blame for toddler head injuries can be tough. Accidents can and do happen and sometimes they are nobody’s fault. But say your toddler has been left unsupervised at nursery and fallen from a climbing frame? In this instance, the nursery staff who should have been supervising could be held liable for his injuries. Or what if a defective product in your home has caused toddler head injuries? A faulty cot-bed or changing mat could lead to minor or serious injuries which could affect the rest of your child’s life, and have a knock-on effect on family life too.
Bumps and bruises
Whilst we recognise that toddler head injuries aren’t always serious, we know that you deserve to be compensated if your child has been injured through somebody else’s negligence, and we’re here to help you get the personal injury compensation you deserve. You don’t want somebody else’s child to be injured in a similar accident, and taking action against the person or organisation responsible can often prevent this from happening. Whether your child has suffered bumps and bruises to their head, a concussion or serious brain injury, call our helpline and get confidential no-obligation advice from our personal injury advisors. If you decide to go ahead with a claim, we offer a 100% no win, no fee* service, so that’s another thing you don’t have to worry about.
Should you claim?
Claiming personal injury compensation won’t solve the problems your family may face in the wake of your child’s accident, but a settlement could help to pay for medical expenses and treatment as well as compensating you for loss of wages. Find out how much you could claim by taking the 30-second test on our website, or call Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500 – it’s free to call – and you might find you’re one step closer to making that all-important decision. Remember though, there is a three-year time limit in place to make a personal injury claim, so it’s a good idea to get in touch with us as soon as possible after your child’s accident.
