Child Accident Claims
How Thompsons Solicitors can help trade union members make a Child Accident claim
Accidents involving children are sadly not uncommon in the UK and can have a devastating effect on the family involved. Thompsons Solicitors’ experience of child accident claims is that many trade union members are unsure whether, as parents or guardians of children who suffer personal injuries, they are entitled to make a claim on their child’s behalf through their trade union legal scheme.
If you are the parent or guardian of an injured person under the age of 18, and you are part of a trade union, you can access free legal advice and representation with Thompsons Solicitors. A child accident compensation claim can be started any time after your child’s injury occurred, up until their 18th birthday. After this, they have three years to make a personal injury claim themselves.
