We may expect to have to consult the Wyre Forest no win no fee claims lawyers because we have been injured in an accident ourselves but no one wants to consult them because their child has been injured. When we think of personal injury claims and Wyre Forest no win no fee claims lawyers then we do not think of childhood accidents yet these may be more common than you think. Children are always falling over and suffering minor injuries – it is part of growing up and we all expect it. However, if your child has been badly hurt in an accident that was not their own fault then it may be possible for the Wyre Forest no win no fee claims lawyers at Accident Advice Helpline to start a personal injury claim for compensation.
Wyre Forest no win no fee claims lawyers and childhood accidents
Childhood accidents can happen just about anywhere that children play, learn, walk or ride. The Wyre Forest no win no fee claims lawyers are highly experienced in childhood accidents and know how distressing it is for the whole family when a child is injured. The claims lawyers deal sensitively and compassionately with every child accident claim that they handle.
Sometimes children are injured in road traffic accidents. They are one of the groups of the population who are more at risk when they are a pedestrian. This may be because they do not have a finely tuned risk perception or because they do not have the physical capability to get out of the way of a vehicle. Hundreds of children are injured on the roads every year. Some of those children are often cyclists or passengers in cars. Older children are more likely to be injured as cyclists because they are independently travelling around whereas younger children are more likely to be injured in a car. You can help to keep your child safe during car journeys by putting them in a correctly fitted car seat for all journeys. The car seat should be appropriate for the size, age and weight of the child.
Children can also be injured in accidents at school or nursery. These accidents are especially distressing for parents because they expected the school or nursery to be a safe environment for their child. The claims lawyers can help you to start a personal injury claim if the accident was someone else’s fault. This may be because the organisation operating the school or nursery did not have appropriate health and safety procedures and policies in place. The activity that your child was participating in may not have been adequately risk assessed or the equipment may have been faulty.
