Children’s injury compensation claims from a school gym accident
The school or nursery should provide a safe environment for children in their care. Some children’s accidents will happen due to the neglect of the school staff. This could be caused in a physical exercise (PE) lesson, where insufficient safety precautions have been taken to protect the children. Sometimes this is due to safety matting not being put in place to protect children prior to gym exercises. Another possible cause is goal posts not being secured to the wall or floor, which means the goal could topple over and be the cause a child’s injury.
Children’s injury compensation claims accident in the classroom
The chairs supplied for children to sit on should be in a good condition. If the chair breaks when sat on which causes an injury, there would be a cause for a child’s compensation claim. Another cause for a compensation claim would be if the child’s accident was caused by a slip on a wet floor in the classroom or any other area inside the school. If the floor has been cleaned and the floor been left wet, with no warning signs left in place and it caused a child to slip and injure themselves, a child injury compensation claim could be made.
There are many reasons why children’s injury compensation claims may arise from an accident at school. If your child has had an accident and injured themselves you can contact us to find out if you can claim.
Children’s injury compensation claims accident in a car
If a child is involved in a car accident as a passenger, they could claim child injury compensation. The child or children involved should be taken to seek medical advice following a traffic accident, if any pain is felt to rule out a more serious injury if one is not immediately apparent.
Children’s injury compensation claims from a slip or trip
With children out playing, they are bound to trip and fall causing an injury to themselves. On many occasions this type of accident would be the child’s own fault. However, if the injury is caused by potholes in the pavement or park or other obstructions left lying around by workers, there could be a claim for childrens accident compensation.
Children’s injury compensation claims accidents in a park
The equipment in a child’s play park or play area should be safe and inspected by the authority responsible on a regular basis. Damaged play equipment should be removed, replaced or at least cordoned off, so the children and parents are aware of the defects. If a child is injured in a play park, it is a good idea to take photographs of the defect which caused the accident and injury. Then report the defect to the authority or company responsible.
Children’s injury compensation claims accidents in a shop
Shops often have stock lying around that is in the process of being put out, or empty cardboard boxes in the aisles creating a tripping hazard. Other times it could be trailing leads from floor cleaning machines or a wet floor after being cleaned by staff. If your child has been injured in a shop due to staff negligence, it is possible to make a child injury compensation claim.
If the child is under 18 years of age they will need an adult to act for them to pursue any children’s injury compensation claims this is usually the parent or guardian.
A medical assessment may be required to help determine the exact level of childrens accident compensation that will be awarded based on all of the injuries and length of suffering. This will be arranged by the solicitor and will be local to where you live. To see examples of child injury compensation awards, please click on the link for our Compensation Estimator above.

As the parent or guardian of an injured baby or child, you can make a childrens accident compensation claim for them immediately after an accident or right up until the child reaches 18.
