After we’ve talked through your situation we’ll be able to work out if your child’s injury was somebody else's fault. If we believe that mistakes have been made we'll get evidence from medical experts to support your case.
Specialist care is an important part of any serious injury claim. We’ll make sure that your child has access to the very best medical support while we continue with the case.
When we calculate how much compensation your child needs we’ll take into account their injuries, the cost of the support they’ve had so far and what they will need in the coming months and years.
We understand that the full extent of your child’s injury often won’t be clear straight away. We’ll seek interim compensation payments to cover the cost of any specialist care and support they need until we know the full extent of their injury. This means that they’ll receive a rehabilitation and compensation package which covers their needs for life if necessary.
Once we’ve worked out how much compensation your child needs we’ll negotiate a settlement with the people responsible. If they disagree, we’ll begin court proceedings and a judge will decide the outcome of the case – however, the majority of claims are settled out of court. Even if we do start proceedings, many cases still settle out of court before the hearing begins.
