When it comes to the injury of a child, we understand what a stressful and difficult time this can often be for a family. When your child is in pain, there is nothing a parent wants more than to take that pain away.

Children can be quite clumsy when they are young and often they may fall, trip or bump into things and cause injury to themselves. There are however a number of cases where your child may be injured as the result of negligence on behalf of a third party, and if this is the situation that you find your child in then you may be able to make a claim to cover any medical expenses that you have paid as a result of this injury.

What can be the result of a child brain injury?

When it comes to brain injuries in children, the nature of their usually small and delicate frames can often mean that even the slightest impact can have devastating consequences. When a child suffers from a head trauma this can often result in serious damage to the brain and surrounding tissue which in turn can affect the ability of the child to perform normal day to day functions with ease.

Brain injuries in children can have a very serious impact on their lives and can result in a number of symptoms including an increased time to process information, difficulties on focussing attention and concentrating, long term or short term memory loss and forgetfulness and a whole range of emotion and behaviour disorders including depression, anxiety, fear and aggression.

What are some situations that I can claim for?

Although children may be the cause of their own falls or bumps, in many cases there are ways that these situations could have been prevented and these include:

  • School injuries – Injuries that the child may incur at school as the result of incorrect safety procedures put in place or at the hands of another child
  • Hospital injuries – If the child suffers medical negligence in a hospital
  • Carer injuries – If the child is in the hands of a carer or nanny who may not have taken the proper precautions to ensure they were playing in a safe area, or may not have given the child the correct level of supervision.

How do I claim?

If you feel that your child has suffered as the result of negligence by a third party then you may be able to make a claim for any medical expenses associated with brain injuries that they may have incurred as a result. It’s common knowledge that brain injuries to children can be incredibly debilitating and can have a strong influence on how the child behaves for the rest of their lives.
