Suffering an accident is traumatic enough for an adult; however the situation is made even worse when children are involved.
If you have been involved in an accident with your child, or you were injured in an accident before the age of 18, Croftons Solicitors can help.
Victims of an accident which took place when they were a child must make a claim within three years of their eighteenth birthday to be eligible for compensation.
After this has elapsed you will be unable to claim, making it essential to act as quickly as possible if you believe you have a valid case.
Making A Claim
In addition to the strict time limit on when a claim can be made, there are also several other considerations to take into account.
Claimants will have to prove that they did not cause or contribute to the accident which occurred, and must have sought medical attention for their injuries.
In cases where immediate compensation is being sought rather than claiming as an adult, a litigation friend can be appointed. A litigation friend acts on behalf of the child, and must be able to prove that there is no conflict of interest.
