The Child Injury Solicitors Hampton Hill Parents turn to
Part of our responsibility as the injury solicitors that Hampton Hill residents often use, is to help parents to register personal injury claims on behalf of their children.
Injuries are of course never welcome, but when that injury involves a child, and that child is your own, it makes the experience even more traumatic.
Waiving of the “3 Year Time Window”
Under normal circumstances, there is a 3 year window from the date of an accident/injury during which injury claims have to be registered. But when it comes to making out injury claims for children, the 3-year rule is waived.
The only time the 3-year rule comes into force as far as children are concerned, is when they reach the age of 18 – then the clock starts ticking to claim…
Suing for Damages makes for Safer Products
Even though financial compensation does nothing to lessen the trauma of a child’s injury, it does however help to concentrate the mind of those who are being sued for damages.
In many instances this means that products (where the claim was actioned under product liability) are often redesigned in a safer way.
The three-year statute of limitations is the only thing that is lifted with regard to the injury of a minor. Other factors are still held to be important, such as:
- The injury must be the fault of a third party, not the child or parent
- The injury must be relatively serious to warrant a claim
For clarification, we have a team of experienced advisers you can talk to on our toll-free helpline, the contact details of which are shown below.
Type of Injuries that befall Children
The injuries that befall our children can be caused by a wide variety of circumstances and scenarios. These include:
- Accidents in the home
- Accident involving animals
- Falls in recreational grounds/playgrounds
- Injuries sustained in nurseries, or at school
- Injuries sustained in a road traffic accident
Because children are so active, they do tend to be accident prone and need careful supervision, but the truth of the matter is that they can’t be watched all of the time.
