Accidents which involve children can be an extremely distressing experience for parents and/or carers (and, of course, the child in question).
More often than not the injuries suffered by the child are of a serious nature, although minor injuries like slight scarring can also be pursued.
A child can, of course, be injured almost anywhere and at any time but there are certain environments that are more prone to blameworthy accidents than others. Some of these are detailed below:
Great service, very understanding from the first phone call to the last.

If your child has had an accident and the blame is down to someone else, as a parent or legal guardian, you are entitled to pursue a personal injury case on their behalf. Many child accident claims can lead to a high level of compensation amounts because the damage done seriously impacts the rest of their life and others’.
When your child reaches the age of 18, they have 3 years from the date of the injury to begin an accident claim if you haven’t done so already on their behalf.
Other losses can include those of a financial kind e.g. loss of earnings because a parent or guardian has had to give up their job to look after their child. If you have had to pay for medical expenses then you could also be reimbursed for this. The pain and suffering experienced by your child will be built into a compensation claim amount too.
