As expert child injuries solicitors and child accident solicitors we appreciate that when a child suffers from an accident causing injury it can be extremely traumatic to the child and parents.

Whether the accident to a child is minor or major we can help you and advise you in clear terms if there is a reasonable prospect of making a successful claim for compensation for the child injury and financial losses.

Children are absorbed by their surroundings and are often not aware of any immediate dangers. Boys are injured by showing off or playing “dare” among friends. In fact statistically boys are more likely to be injured than girls.
What Can Be Claimed?
A claim for child accident compensation for child injuries to a child is made up of the following:
1. Child Injuries – compensation is assessed by the extent of the injuries and suffering by the child as a
result of the accident. In general the greater the injury and suffering the more compensation will be awarded.

a. Claim for replacement cost to the child’s clothing,
b. Travel expenses to hospital and GP
c. Loss of earnings as a result of taking time off work to look after your child
d. Any other expense or loss that is deemed to be reasonable.
