Is your child becoming more independent?
As a baby becomes a toddler and a toddler becomes a child, they tend to spend less and less time with their parents. Whilst a newborn may be cared for solely by one or both parents, as a child grows up, they often spend less time with just their parents and more time with others.
For example, at an early age, your child may start to attend a playgroup or nursery. Whilst they may attend with a parent or guardian to begin with, soon enough they will simply be dropped off and collected by a carer.
Similarly, at a relatively young age, your child may start to attend primary school so they will be in the care of teachers and teaching assistants, rather than with their parents. Whilst these steps are crucial to a child’s development, it can be a worrying time for parents. Although they want the best for their child, many parents worry about their child’s safety, particularly when they are not with them.
Although most children do suffer some bumps and bruises whilst growing up, most injuries are not too serious and simply require a plaster. However, from time to time, more serious incidents can occur and your child may need medical help.
Whilst some injuries are simply as a result of a non-fault accident, in some cases, someone or something may have been responsible for causing the injuries. If your child has been hurt and the injury was caused by someone or something else, you may be able to work with a law firm in Huyton in order to claim compensation on their behalf.
Does the harm have to have been intentional in order to make a claim with a law firm in Huyton?
Not at all. In most cases, whatever or whomever caused the injury won’t have intended to hurt anyone. Despite this, they could still be responsible so, with a law firm in Huyton, you could make a compensation claim against them.
If, for example, a toy manufacturer produced a toy with a fault that resulted in a child being injured, they could still be responsible for the injuries caused even though they didn’t intend to hurt anyone and a law firm in Huyton could make a claim against them for compensation.
