In the unfortunate instance of a serious injury to your child, we understand that seeking compensation to help with recovery is of vital importance.
Our dedicated team of solicitors will do our utmost to help secure the best possible future for you and your family.
Our solicitors and lawyers have worked with children who have sustained serious brain, spinal and orthopaedic injuries following road traffic collisions, medical negligence, accidents at school and assaults.
If your child has suffered, then please contact our specialist Medical Negligence and Serious Injury team to start a claim.
We work hard to provide a complete legal service and will look to secure early interim payments as part of the legal claim. This can assist your child’s recovery by looking to implement complete support and rehabilitation packages, obtain specialist aids and equipment, address any accommodation needs and much more.
Our goal is to support our clients to make the best possible recovery so they can return to leading full and active lives.
Following a serious injury
A serious injury can change your child’s life in an instant. It is reported by Parliament that approximately 5,000 of those hurt each year in road traffic collisions are children under the age of 16.
The severity of the initial injury is not always an accurate indicator of long-term problems and lasting impairments that may arise.
Serious injuries to children can have a dramatic and life changing impact on the child and their families. Whatever level of injury it is important that you receive the very best advice, treatment, rehabilitation and care as quickly as possible.
Financial compensation can be provided by way of interim payments so that you have access to private treatment, accommodation, rehabilitation and care when you need it the most, topping up any NHS provision.
Compensation can also be used to alleviate some of the immediate financial difficulties which can be caused by serious injury.
It is therefore essential that you seek legal advice from an experienced personal injury solicitor who understands the complex nature of serious injuries to children.

Rehabilitation and support
We work closely with a wide variety of experts who provide support and rehabilitation to any client who has sustained a serious injury. These include specialists in neuro-rehabilitation, occupational therapy, care managers, physiotherapists, psychologists and more.
We also work with the existing specialist rehabilitation providers within the NHS to ensure ongoing care and treatment is as straightforward and effective as possible.
Access to the correct rehabilitation experts can be largely dependent on your location within the UK, it is therefore important that you seek legal advice from an experienced personal injury solicitor who has access to experts in the required rehabilitation sector.
Depending on the severity of the serious injury, your child may require long-term support which may span their lifetime.
Your local authority may provide some care and support to your family. However, funding for the care may be available through a claim.
We work on putting together a rehabilitation package through the assistance of a case manager. We also work closely with local charities and organisations that can provide respite and support following a serious injury to a child.
If we deal with your child’s personal injury compensation claim, we will do so on a completely No-Win No-Fee basis.
Do not judge the circumstances of your child’s case as your solicitor can best advise whether any compensation is recoverable.
We are recognised as leading experts in dealing with cases involving serious injuries. We set up our Medical Negligence and Serious Injury team to bring together the most specialist personal injury lawyers with medical and disability experts to fight for justice for the most seriously injured.
