Accidents Involving Children

The Accident Claimline deal with many accidents involving minors (under the age of 18).

Making a claim for a child requires a slightly different process but The Accident Claimline have solicitors who can guide you every step of the way.

These accidents can vary from car accidents, hit & run accidents, accidents in soft play, accidents at school plus many more.

Parents and guardians are aware that all children are prone to having accidents and being unstable on their feet however there is still a duty of care from road users, schools and other child friendly locations to protect and prevent children having accidents whilst in their care or using their equipment/toys.

Accidents at School

Teacher supervision is paramount in schools as young children have not yet developed an appreciation for the amount of danger and risk involved. Schools do have a duty of care to supply the following at minimum:

  • Adequate supervision
  • Safe equipment and toys
  • Safe locations to play (outside and inside)

If your child has had an accident at school and been injured please give us a call to see if we can help.

Road Traffic Accidents

If your child has been involved in a car accident as a:

  • Passenger
  • Cyclist
  • Pedestrian

They may be entitled to compensation. It can also be possible to make a claim for a child's injuries if they were sustained as a passenger whilst you were driving the vehicle, if the driver at fault was uninsured and untraceable.

As passengers in a car it is highly unlikely that the child would ever be at fault for the accident meaning that there is usually a valid claim for compensation.

Injuries affect children in the same way they would do an adult so even if children don't have any visible injuries it is still a good idea to get them checked out by a medical professional just in case.

Dog Bites

Every year we deal with claims where dogs have bitten children. It may seem that an accident involving such unpredictable behaviour from children and dogs could be claimed for, but on some occasions it can.

In these cases injuries can be very severe and life changing for the child. If your child has been bitten by a dog it's a good idea to report this to the police straight away and give us a call 0800 160 1296 to see if we can help with a claim for compensation.
