Serious Child Injuries

Children will often suffer from minor injuries, being naturally inquisitive and wanting to explore their surroundings. However on some occasions, children will be hurt in serious accidents or due to medical negligence.

We understand how a serious injury to a child can have a significant impact on the whole family. At JMW Solicitors, our lawyers have a great deal of experience in helping families claim compensation to help them manage after an accident or medical injury and we can offer you support alongside our specialist knowledge to ensure you and your family are looked after during and after your claim.

Defining serious child injuries

If a child suffers injuries which have a significant or long term impact on their health and quality of life, they are considered to be serious injuries. Examples of such injuries include:

  • Brain damage
  • Injuries suffered during birth
  • Paralysis
  • Spinal injuries
  • Amputations
  • Neck injuries

These injuries often occur as a result of personal injuries suffered in accidents, or due to negligence on the part of medical professionals. If your child has been injured in a public place, at school, on a school trip or due to medical negligence, you could be able to claim compensation on their behalf. If your child was under the age of 18 when the injury occurred, you could be entitled to make a claim up until their 21st birthday.

Our serious injury solicitors have a wealth of experience, having successfully dealt with many legal cases on behalf of children, from cerebral palsy to severe orthopaedic damage. This has given us an intimate understanding of the approach needed with such cases, and the clear need to work for the best outcome, both for the child and their family. Our clients will always receive the best possible advice and you can be confident in the knowledge that your case is being handled by well trained professionals.
