    Your accident and injury claims in Southend-on-Sea questions

    At Accident Advice Helpline we have over 14 years’ experience when it comes to helping our clients make compensation claims for personal injuries they have suffered at the hands of other people. This means that over the years we have heard pretty much all the questions that people are likely to have about making such claims.

    As many people have the same questions, we thought it would be a good idea to lay some of these out for you so you can have immediate access to them should you want them. Should you still have questions, or simply want more information then you can call us, we will always do our best to help.

    I had a road accident with minor injuries, but I keep having nightmares. Can I still make a claim?

    Many people believe that they can only make accident and injury claims in Southend-on-Sea if they have been involved in horrendous accidents and suffered life changing, physical injuries as a result. Although we can of course help with these claims, they are not the only things that you can seek compensation for.

    Many people find that they suffer terrible psychological injuries after accidents, especially ones that were particularly traumatic. It may be that you have difficulty sleeping, whether through insomnia or nightmares. You may become depressed and withdrawn and develop anxieties. If these are things that have developed as a result of your accident then you can still seek compensation for them and Accident Advice Helpline solicitors can help you to do so.

    My child has been injured in an accident, can they make a claim?

    Children or anyone under the age of 18 are not legally able to make a claim in their own right. However, they are still entitled to seek compensation for injuries they have sustained. This means that they have two options.

    Firstly a legal guardian or parent could act as a litigation friend and make a claim on the child’s behalf. Any money awarded as compensation will effectively be put in to a trust for the child to access when they become 18.

    Alternatively it is possible for the child to wait until they are 18 years of age at which point they could seek compensation in their own right. Your Accident Advice Helpline solicitor will be able to discuss with you what is likely to be the best option.
