You’re probably aware that if you were to be involved in an accident which was not your fault and which left you with injuries, you would have the right to make accident and injury claims in Islington for compensation.
What you might not be aware of is that as the parent of a child under the age of 18, if your child received injuries you would also have the right to make a similar claim on their behalf.
Children’s Injuries and advice on claiming in Islington
No parent wants to consider their child being injured. We have a natural instinct to protect and nurture our children and the prospect of an accident befalling them is almost too much to contemplate.
In the aftermath of an accident, however serious it might be, you will of course be concentrating on tending to your child and ensuring that they receive the best possible care.
However, there are also a number of benefits to getting advice on claiming in Islington on behalf of your child and their injuries:
- A formal acknowledgement of your child’s injuries together with the apology they deserve.
- Financial compensation which could help them to adjust to their injuries, could provide any equipment they need or could potentially become a trust fund for them as they grow older.
- Financial remuneration for any losses you or any other relatives have been forced to make (time away from work for example)
- Acknowledgement from the party responsible for the injuries, together with an assurance that the matter has been thoroughly investigated and that a similar situation might never re-occur.
