Our injury solicitors in St. Helens can even help you make a claim for compensation if it is your child who has been injured in a road traffic accident.
Children, as any parent knows, are not immune from being injured and involved in accidents. For the most part we hope that any accidents our children are involved in will be the normal, every day mundane ones such as taking a nose dive off the sofa, falling down the stairs or tripping over in the playground. While it is of course possible to sustain serious injuries as a result of these accidents, they do just happen. It might not be anyone’s fault necessarily and therefore, in such situations, our injury solicitors in St. Helens would not be able to help you make a claim for compensation as there would be no one to make a claim against.
However, if someone were to be responsible for the accident, for example, if falling down the stairs was caused as a result of a loose floor tile in a public place then the person who owned the building would be liable for the accident. If you child fell over in the playground because they were allowed to play outside despite the fact the ground was icy and it had not been suitably salted or gritted, then someone would be liable for the accident.
When it comes to road traffic accidents your child cannot be held to be liable for the accident. As a result it would be possible for your injury solicitors in St. Helens to make a claim for compensation against the person who was responsible.
If your child has been injured in a road traffic accident whilst they were a passenger in a vehicle, then you can start a claim today with our injury solicitors.
It might be that the child was travelling in the vehicle of the driver who was responsible for the accident. Just because they were in the responsible vehicle at the time of the accident does not minimise their injuries, or the impact they might have had on them, so we will still be able to help.
If you think your child might be entitled to compensation as a result of an injury they have sustained in a road traffic accident then contact our team of injury solicitors in today. We can help after your car crash in St Helens.
