CHILDREN

As the parent of a child who suffered a personal injury as the result of a road traffic accident you may be unsure as to whether you can make a claim. Where the injury sustained was as a result of someone else’s negligence you can make a compensation claim for their personal injury on their behalf.

 

Once the child reaches 18 years of age they have up to 3 years to make a personal injury claim for themselves if their parents haven’t already done so.

 

As a parent claiming for personal injury sustained to your child you will be referred to as a ‘litigation friend’. The claiming parent has to be independent and so can not have been responsible for the accident.
