Personal Injury Compensation for Children

When a child suffers a personal injury the effects may be difficult to determine as they are still developing both from a physical and psychological perspective.

When pursuing a claim for personal injury compensation on behalf of a child it will be necessary to obtain specialist medical advice identifying not only the immediate impact of the injuries but also how long it may take to determine the long term consequences. In more serious accidents it may be many years before the permanent effects can be fully assessed and the claim valued for the purposes of compensation.

At Sintons we have successfully pursued many serious injury claims involving children. We never recommend settlement of a claim until all appropriate steps have been taken to fully investigate the consequences of the accident and any permanent damage that is likely to arise. Our expert team can provide advice in relation to all aspects of your child’s accident compensation claim and ensure that they obtain the appropriate medical treatment and rehabilitation.

As the claim may persist for many years before settlement, interim payments can be obtained to meet any needs that arise in the meantime. It is also possible to recover any losses and expenses which you incur as a direct consequence of your child’s accident, including loss of earnings arising from any additional care that they require. Even where you do not suffer an actual loss of earnings it is still possible to obtain additional compensation to reflect the increase in care that is required.

All personal injury claims are pursued on a No Win No Fee basis so you can rest assured that there is no financial risk.
