CAN MY CHILDREN CLAIM FOR INJURIES?
Children under the age of 18 can make a claim as long as they suffered physical injury. If there is no physical injury then the non physical injury has to be a recognised psychological injury, i.e. depression, PTSD etc.
Even if the physical injury is minor, we will always recommend a claim is made as this will be in the best interests of the child.
For a child to claim, a litigation friend (an adult, I.e. parent) will need to act on behalf of the child.
