Child Accident Claims

Child Injury Compensation

Children will always suffer bumps and bruises and minor cuts through normal play and learning.

However, sometimes they can suffer more serious injuries due to a lack of safety measures. In such cases, as a parent or guardian, your priority is to help your child and relieve any pain and suffering by getting the treatment and rehabilitation they need. You should also make a  claim for compensation for your child.

How Tollers Can Help With Your Child’s Accident Claim

We will listen to your story in an empathetic way, making sure we understand how and why your child was injured and what you want to achieve by claiming. We will then explain the legal process clearly and in plain English.  It is important you choose an experienced lawyer familiar with all the issues that may affect your child.  For example, an injury may cause behavioural and educational problems that can affect your child’s future career prospects. They may need adapted or modified accommodation, ongoing care and medical treatment. Whatever your child’s requirements, we have the expertise to help you secure them.

We have secured compensation for many children who have suffered injuries including catastrophic injuries resulting in several settlements of over £1m.

What to Expect From A Claim For A Child

Compensation payments depend on the extent of your child’s injuries. A court must approve any terms of a settlement. Compensation is paid into court and placed in a special investment account. Your child can apply for the release of the compensation money and interest when they turn 18. In the meantime, however, you can ask the court to release monies to fund any immediate medical treatment or special educational needs.

Special rules apply to cases involving children and we will explain these to you and guide you through the whole process.
