    Leven personal injury claims for children

    If your child has had an accident which you do not think was their fault and which could have been prevented if someone else had taken the necessary precautions, then they could be entitled to make a claim for compensation.

    Making Leven personal injury claims for children can be handled in one of two ways. Either you can make a claim on their behalf by acting as a litigation friend, or you can wait until they are old enough (i.e. 18) to be able to initiate a claim on their own behalf.

    If you choose to make a claim for compensation on their behalf then your Leven personal injury claims solicitor will provide you with all of the information that you need. Any compensation that is awarded will usually be held in an account for the child until they reach a suitable age (usually 18) to be able to access it. However, this may depend on the circumstances of the accident and the associated injuries. In some cases it may be possible for interim payments to be made to parents, especially if specialist care or equipment is needed following the accident which the parents or caregivers would be unable to afford on their own.

    Should your child decide to wait until they reach the age to be able to make a claim for themselves then they will have to initiate their claim by the day before their 21st birthday. If you are in any doubt about the process or what the best options may be for you, your child and your family then speak to Accident Advice Helpline today and one of our advisors will do all they can to answer the questions and queries you may have.

    Types of accidents

    If you are reading this because you have a child who has been injured in an accident then you will already be aware that children are naturally curious beings. Full of enthusiasm and excitement they have a tendency to rush in to situations head first without any thought for the consequences. With no concept of danger or their surroundings for the most part, it is little wonder that most children have suffered a number of bumps, bruises and grazes before long. However, not all accidents occur as a result of natural childlike exuberance.

    If your child has been injured in an accident which you think can, and indeed should, have been prevented then you could be entitled to seek compensation on their behalf. For example, if an accident was caused as a result of faulty machinery or lack of supervision then our Leven personal injury claims solicitors will do all they can to win compensation from the liable party or their insurance provider.
