How can Redkite Solicitors help you with child personal injury claims?

We have particular expertise in dealing with children’s claims and ensuring that, not only will your child receive the maximum amount of compensation for their injuries, but that they have the earliest possible access to any medical and rehabilitation treatments necessary to assist in their recovery. In many cases we are able to secure vitally important interim payments that can make all the difference.

We have been providing specialist assistance with child related accidents for many years, and this includes:

  • Compensation for pain and suffering
  • Immediate, ongoing and future medical treatment and therapy costs
  • Parents’ out of pocket expenses
  • Compensation to parents where significant care and assistance has been provided as a result of their child’s injury

As the parent or guardian of an injured child, you can make a claim on their behalf as a ‘litigation friend’ until the age of 18. From their 18th birthday they have a further 3 years to pursue the claim themselves if you did not pursue it on their behalf when they were younger.

Our solicitors will always thoroughly explain the claims process from the outset, allowing you and your child to gain an understanding of your legal position in plain English or Welsh with no legal jargon.

With 6 high-street offices across South and West Wales, we aim to be as accessible as possible for our clients. If you are unable to visit us in our offices due to your child’s injuries, just let us know. One of our team will be more than happy to come and see you and your child at home, in hospital or in respite care, wherever suits you best.

Following a free consultation with one of our personal injury solicitors, we will be able to determine how successful your child’s claim is likely to be.

You can rely on our solicitors to take necessary action towards protecting your child’s long term financial interests and, if you have concerns about financing the claim, speak to your solicitor about our no win-no fee service. You will be able to actively build your child’s claim against the negligent party without having to worry about paying any upfront legal fees, allowing you to focus on helping your child through recovery.
