Can a claim be made for an accident involving children?
At Accident Advice Helpline, this is one of the most common questions we are asked.
We receive over 25,000 enquiries a month from people that have been hurt in accidents, and in many of these accidents, minors were also involved. Road traffic accidents make up a substantial number of these enquiries, as it is often the case that children travelling as passengers can be injured in a collision.
If you want to make a claim for compensation for the injuries your children have suffered, Accident Advice Helpline can help. We are one of the top personal injury law firms in the UK, helping to award over £30 million a year in damages. We have experience handling these sorts of Hawarden claims, and our legal team is here to help.
How does it work?
Children hurt while riding their bikes, playing in a swimming pool, using equipment in play areas, walking along the pavement or as passengers in a vehicle can face serious injuries.
In order to make a claim, you must be able to prove that the negligence of another party caused the accident to occur. For example, when making a claim for injuries sustained in a car accident, the other driver must have been responsible for the collision. Your children must also be under the age of 18 in order for you to make a claim on their behalf.
To find out how much you could claim, fill in our 30-second claims calculator online for a quick estimate, or get in touch with one of our claims advisers to discuss the circumstances surrounding your case. Our team can provide an honest assessment with absolutely no obligation to proceed.
You have up to three years from the date of the accident to make a claim, allowing you enough time to nurse your children back to health before seeking compensation from whoever was responsible.
