Being involved in any car accident can be a horrifying turn of events, but perhaps especially so when the accident occurs with your children in the car.
If children are involved in a car accident, they could be left to suffer serious injuries affecting the head, brain or spinal cord, along with other less severe injuries. They may be faced with not only an extensive recovery period, but the accident could also leave them traumatised as well. As a parent or guardian of a child, you may feel responsible if they are hurt in an accident with you at the wheel.
But what happens when the accident was not your fault? If another negligent driver caused the accident that hurt you and your family, they should be held responsible. If the children in the car are under eighteen years of age, you may be within your legal rights to make a compensation claim on their behalf.
These sorts of claims require a delicate hand from a professional that has experience in this realm – and that’s where Accident Advice Helpline can be of help. As a leading personal injury law firm, we help award over £30 million in compensation a year. We know how difficult it can seem to see justice done after this sort of an accident, but that’s exactly what we’ll strive for when handling your claim.
