Specialists in Claims for Accidents Involving Children

Unfortunately, children can also be involved in accidents whether this is an accident at school, on the playground or at a park, hit by a car or falling due to a pothole. 

Children are still able to claim and are able to do so until they turn 21. However, someone under 18 will need to bring a claim through a “Litigation Friend”; someone who is able to conduct the claim on their behalf whether this is a parent, sibling or grandparent. If a child turns 18 partway through the claim process, the need for a Litigation Friend in most cases will no longer be required. 

Any compensation for someone under the age of 18 must be approved at a court hearing, or the agreement is not binding. A judge will then decide what should happen with their compensation; whether it is paid into the Court Funds Office until the child turns 18 or is paid into the child’s existing ISA. 

In cases where a child has suffered life-changing injuries and in turn, needs access to some of their compensation before they turn 18; for example, so that modifications to their home can be made, and liability for the accident has been admitted, we will do what we can to ensure that the resources they need are available. 

Here at Tinsdills, we have dealt with 100’s of cases for children and will be there to support you throughout the journey, all the way through to the Court appointment.
