About Children Car Accident Claims

Our experienced road traffic accident solicitors will help you make any compensation claims concerning your child’s road traffic accident. Here at Solicitors On Your Side, we understand that having a child who has been injured because of someone else’s negligent behaviour can be extremely traumatising. Our experienced solicitors will do everything in their power to ensure you get the compensation you deserve.

Historically child fatalities are mainly caused by pedestrian-car accidents with 18 fatalities in 2019. There were 10 cycling fatalities and 8 car passenger fatalities. However, in 2019 there was a whopping 13,574 casualties, including accidents, serious injuries and fatalities. Our solicitors understand that it can be extremely traumatic if your child has been hurt due to someone else’s negligent behaviour on the road.

We also understand that no money can compensate for stress and trauma you might experience in consequence of it. However, our experienced solicitors will help you get the compensation you will need to take care of any treatment your child may need after the accident. This could include any treatment or equipment you may need to help your child recover in the best possible way and live the best life after it.

Child car safety law

If you are travelling with a child in the vehicle, you, the driver must ensure the safety of all your passengers. Legally children must be using a car seat until the age of 12 or the height of 135cm, and it is the driver’s responsibility to enforce that.

Claiming as a parent or guardian of the child

Parents or guardians claiming compensation on behalf of an injured child is also known as litigation friend. This is authorised by the court to represent the claimant and conduct the case on their behalf.

If you would like to find out how to make a successful claim on behalf of your injured child, we highly recommend you contact Solicitors On Your Side now. We will ensure that making a claim is as stress-free and easy as possible so you can come out with the best possible outcome for your case.

Time limit 

If you would like to make a compensation claim on behalf of your child if they have been involved in a car accident, you can make the claim immediately. However, if you decide to claim after some time, we advise that you can make it at any time if they are under the age of 18, and if they are over the age of 18 they have 3 years after their 18th birthday. However, we advise making the claim earlier rather than later to ensure a more successful outcome.
