Child Injury Compensation Claims

Children are more prone to accidents and injuries than adults, but most of the time they do not suffer serious injuries. Although most of the child accidents result in minor injuries, there are occasions in which they can suffer severe and long lasting injuries. If your child has been injured in an accident that was caused by another person, you may be in a strong position to make child injury compensation claims.

In the UK, child injury compensation claims are different than those of adults. Time limits for making a claim start when a child has reached 18 years of age. This means that the child has until his 21st birthday to pursue a child injury compensation claim. Moreover, the claim will need to be handled on the child’s behalf by a litigation friend who is approved by the court. The litigation friend can be the child’s parents, guardian or a close relative. In addition, the judge will be in charge of approving all settlements with respect to child injury compensation claims.

When compensation is paid to a child by the responsible party, the amount is invested in a Court approved fund. This amount will be released when the child reaches the age of 18. If the child has suffered injuries or needs urgent medical care, the compensation will be released in small amounts by the trustees when they are needed.
