When you contact us, you’ll speak to a member of our friendly team, who will talk to you about your child’s injury. This initial consultation is completely free - from there, we’ll advise you on the best way to take your child’s claim forward.
Contacting Those Responsible For Your Child’s Injuries
We’ll then get in touch with those responsible for your child’s accident at an early stage to see if they accept the blame for what happened. If they accept responsibility, we’ll try to secure some compensation up-front, which can fund private medical care and expenses while the claim is ongoing. These payments, known as interim payments, will be taken out of your child’s final compensation award.
Our experts will look into your child’s case in detail, gathering evidence from various sources such as witnesses, CCTV and independent medical professionals.
We’ll employ medical professionals to find out how your child’s accident has impacted on their future health and they’ll recommend the care your child needs to make the best recovery possible.
Final Settlement & Compensation Awarded
We’ll always try and negotiate claims out of court, keeping the claim process as short as we can. However, if your opponent doesn’t accept responsibility or doesn’t agree with the amount of compensation we feel your child needs, we’ll start court proceedings. We’ll always stand by you and your child if you have to go to trial, and will always try to settle your claim out of court before dates are set.
All personal injury cases involving children have to go before a judge for an infant approval hearing. This hearing happens even when a compensation sum has been agreed with your opponent and is in place to make sure that your child gets a fair settlement.
