Serious Child Injury Claims
If your child has been seriously injured in an accident that was caused by somebody else’s negligence, you are entitled to make a claim for compensation. At JMW, our lawyers have a great deal of experience in helping families claim compensation to help them manage after an accident or medical injury.
About Serious Child Injuries
Unfortunately, children are not immune to injuries as the result of another party’s negligence. Usually, these injuries are straightforward and therefore mean the recovery process is uncomplicated. However, on some occasions children will be hurt in serious accidents or due to medical negligence. If a child suffers injuries that have a significant or long-term impact on their health and quality of life, then there is a clear need to ensure that treatment of the injuries is well-managed, with a properly mapped out path to recovery, overseen by specialists.
The partner-led team at JMW Solicitors has a wealth of experience in securing compensation and overseeing treatment for serious child injuries, such as:
- Brain damage
- Injuries suffered during birth
- Spinal injuries
- Neck injuries
If your child has been injured in a public place, at school, on a school trip or due to medical negligence or as the result of an accident, you will be able to claim compensation on their behalf. If your child was under the age of 18 when the injury occurred, the claim must be issued within three years from their 18th birthday.
