If this accident was caused by another driver then you will need the best solicitors in Fairlight to help you claim compensation for your injuries.

One of the simplest ways of doing this is to contact Accident Advice Helpline on their 24/7 hotline, they are a leading UK law firm fully endorsed by Esther Rantzen, the UK consumer affairs guru.
Perhaps you were alone in the car in which case you will be making a claim just for yourself. However, if there were other passengers in the car then your personal injury solicitor can help them to claim compensation as well. This is true if the passengers were adults or children. The risks related to children and traffic have been well studied and many reports have been produced highlighting exactly which children are at risk and where. One group of children who often travel in cars with their parents and who may feature in a case handled by a road traffic accident solicitor in Fairlight are the pre-school group of children which may also be referred to as the under 5s.
The best solicitors in Fairlight, road traffic accidents and under 5 year old children
It is a sad fact that very young children can get hurt or even killed in road traffic accidents that were another driver’s fault. For very young children the risks of travelling inside a car are much greater than when they are outside the car and this is because their parents or adult carers will be taking responsibility for them when they are a pedestrian. Many of them will not be walking around at all, in fact, because they will be in a pram or pushchair.
Around 200 children under the age of five die or become seriously injured while travelling as a passenger in a car each year. This is terribly distressing for the family of the child and for everyone concerned with the accident. However, the risks to a child travelling in a car can be drastically reduced with just a few simple precautions. If the child is travelling in a correctly fitted child seat that is the correct size and construction for the age, weight and height of the child then they are much more likely to escape from a road traffic collision with only slight injuries or hopefully with no injuries at all. However, this is not always carried out – in fact it is estimated that around half of child car seats in the UK are incorrectly used or fitted.
