Bringing claims on behalf of children
‘Pursuing every child injury compensation claim with understanding and empathy’
If your child needs medical treatment it can be a very worrying time. Although thankfully pediatric treatment tends to be of the highest standard, there are times when things can go wrong. If your child’s injury or health deteriorates due to negligence, we can help you bring forward a child injury claim.
Injuries to children due to medical negligence are usually rare, but when they do occur can have devastating consequences. We deal with a wide range of cases, including delays in diagnosing conditions such as congenital dislocation/dysplasia of the hip (CDH) or childhood cancers.

As a parent, you may need to become your child’s Litigation Friend, representing their interests and giving instructions on their behalf. We can explain how it works and take you through the process step by step.
- Aiming for compensation

The court will have to approve any compensation, which can be held in an interest-bearing account until your child turns 18 either by the Court Funds Office, or sometimes privately invested, if approved by the Judge.
