Child accident compensation claims

If your child is involved in an accident and suffers an injury due to someone’s negligence, you may be able to claim compensation on their behalf.

contact us

Whether your child was at school or nursery, injured in a car accident or injured in a public place, you can make a claim for compensation on their behalf if they are under 18 years of age.

When your child is at nursery or school, they are owed a large duty of care by the people responsible for ensuring their safety. This means giving them adequate supervision, ensuring equipment is safe and being alert to the fact that children are naturally less aware of danger than adults.

We have experience of many types of compensation claims involving children, including:

  • Accidents in public places
  • Accidents at School or Nursery
  • Playground Accidents
  • Slips, trips and falls
  • Road Traffic Accidents
  • Product Liability i.e. faulty toys or play equipment

Time limits for making a child accident claim

A claim for compensation should always be made as soon as possible. The rules on child accident claims are different than those for adults. A claim for an injury sustained as a minor can be made up to 3 years after the child’s 18th birthday.

Why choose us?

Choosing the right firm to help you claim compensation is critical. Child accident claims can be complex and should only be handled by a specialist with detailed knowledge of the law in this area.

At Norrie Waite and Slater your claim will be handled by an experienced lawyer who will work hard to achieve the maximum amount of compensation to which you are entitled.
