Common accidents

When a child injures themselves it is easy to assume that they have simply been clumsy, however, if they have been injured in an accident that was not their fault you may be able to claim on their behalf.

According to UK law, children do not have the same level of responsibility for their actions as adults, particularly when it comes to ensuring their own safety.

  • Bouncy castle accidents
  • Campsite accidents
  • Dangerous toy accidents

Making a No Win No Fee Child Injury Claim

No Win No Fee Injury claims - Grieves Solicitors will typically handle any Child Injury Compensation claim on a No Win No Fee basis. We will be able to quickly confirm this with you at the point of our first consultation whether that be over the phone or in person.  There are generally strict time limits surrounding any compensation claim following an injury, however, Child injury law provided greater leniency.

If your child has been injured through an accident that was not their fault you will be eligible to claim for the injury suffered, and any financial losses incurred at the time of the incident itself. For Serious Injury Claims, the claims process can often take a long time to settle, as the significance of the emotional and physical impact of the injury can also take time to manifest. In such cases, interim compensation payouts can be negotiated in order to ensure the necessary care can be put in place and also that no financial hardship befalls parents who must take time off work to care for their injured child.

Dangerous Toy Injury Claims

If your child has injured themselves whilst playing with a toy, you may be able to make a compensation claim on their behalf. Financial compensation awarded as a result of dangerous toys can help you pay for your child's medical care, as well as compensating you for the pain and suffering their injury has caused.

Grieves Solicitors is based in Huddersfield, and regularly helps families from throughout the surrounding area gain compensation following accidents involving poor toy safety. We accept claims on a No Win No Fee Claim basis, meaning our clients keep 100% of the financial compensation.

Toy Safety

The best way to avoid your child suffering accident or injury due to dangerous toys is to ensure the following toy safety guidelines are adhered to:

  • Make sure the toys your child is playing with are the right age for them - there should be an age guideline on the packaging.
  • Check the packaging for any warning notices, such as 'this toy contains small, detachable parts'.
  • Be very wary of second-hand toys - make sure you thoroughly check their safety before giving them to your child to play with.
  • Make sure the toy has a CE mark, and a full name and address for the manufacturers.

Unfortunately, even the most cautious parents' children can be injured, particularly if the toy is broken, faulty or inappropriately labelled. If you suspect that your child's accident is the result of a dangerous toy, contact a solicitor as soon as possible to discuss a possible compensation claim.
