How long do you have to make a child accident claim?

Adult injury claims are extremely different to child injury claims, as the child can make infant injury claims up until the age of 21 providing they were under the age of 18 when the accident occurred.

However, if the child was the victim of a serious accident then there is no time limit for them to make child compensation claims.

As children’s accident claim specialists, we can provide legal advice and representation, as well as putting you in touch with the relevant medical professionals to ensure your child is fully rehabilitated following their accident.

Child head injury claims

If your child has suffered a serious head injury as a result of an accident, you should consider child head injury claims.

We understand child injuries may not have always been obvious since the accident and that the injury is something that might have developed over time, which is why we are extremely passionate about ensuring you receive the best compensation for your child head injury claims.

By hiring our infant injury claims services for child head injury claims, we will undertake full investigations which ultimately ensure that your child is compensated for their injuries.

Here at Express Solicitors we often advise that you delay a settlement for child head injury claims to identify whether or not the child will suffer from permanent damage; otherwise, the child head injury claims may not be re-opened later in their life if they have settled and have developed further problems.

Express Solicitors accident at school experts also recommend that you gather as much information as possible about your child’s accident, such as the names and addresses of teachers and children involved, photographs of the injuries your child suffered and of the area where the accident happened and receipts for any costs incurred as a result of the accident, such as medical fees and travelling costs.

Claiming compensation for nursery and school accidents

If your child’s nursery or school accident occurred as a result of another individual’s negligence, be this in the form of poor safety measures, maintenance or supervision, you may be eligible to make a claim for compensation.

Typically, child accidents occurring whilst at school or nursery are the direct result of:

  • slips, trips or falls whilst on school property;
  • exposure to asbestos due to poor maintenance;
  • lifting and carrying heavy objects without proper supervision or instruction;
  • sporting injuries;
  • defective equipment, such as school chairs and tables;
  • food poisoning

The law surrounding compensation claims for nursery and school accidents is extremely complex. Thus, whatever the cause of your child’s accident or illness, we recommend that you contact a personal injury solicitor to find out if you can claim compensation. The team at Express will also be able to explain the unique factors which apply to claiming compensation for children’s accidents.
