Accidents which involve children are extremely distressing 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. However, some personal injury claims involve more minor injuries like fractures or scarring.
A child can, of course, be injured almost anywhere and at any time. However, there are certain environments in which accidents are more likely to occur. Below are some of the most common scenarios for accidents involving children:

If your child has had an accident through no fault of their own, as their 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 already done so on their behalf.
Other losses can include those of a financial kind. For instance, if you are a parent or guardian and you have had to give up your job to look after your child, you could claim for loss of earnings. 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 factored into the compensation claim amount too.
