Cases involving children
Many people ring to ask about accidents that involve children. Our expert lawyer in Holloway, along with many of our other legal teams, has worked on some very complex cases involving the pursuit of compensation where children or under 18s are involved.
The best way to know for sure is to call Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500 to find out for your exact case and situation but, it is possible for parents and legal guardians to make a claim on behalf of the child.
Boxes still need ticking
As with all other compensation claims, there are certain aspects that need to be ‘present’ in order for our lawyer in Holloway to be able to take the claim further:
- Liability – many claimants make claims where the child had been hurt due to medical negligence, for example. In these cases, there is usually a clear indication of liability on behalf of someone else or a public body etc. In other circumstances, this might not be the case but don’t be put off! Our lawyer in Holloway is adept at dealing with highly complex cases of this nature.
- Injuries – as with all compensation claims, the person pursuing a claim must have been hurt to an extent that they needed medical attention. For some people, the injuries are minor with short term impact but for other people, including children, these injuries can be not only life-threatening but also life-changing. Again, our lawyer in Holloway is experienced in dealing with cases where the injuries are numerous and complex.
- Timing – with compensation claims involving minors, there are some differences. As with all aspects of making a compensation claim, you MUST contact AAH on 0800 689 0500 to get the latest updates and information; this is important in cases where children are involved.
Why not contact us to find out more?
