Can Children Claim For Compensation?
Personal injury claims involving children are slightly different to those involving adults. This is because in Northern Ireland, anyone under the age of 18 is considered a minor. A minor cannot bring legal action on their own.
Therefore, an adult is appointed to deal with the personal injury claim on the child’s behalf. This person is usually a parent (or someone with parental responsibility) and is known as a next friend.
Otherwise, the personal injury claim process is much the same, until the point where a settlement is reached. When both sides agree on a sum of compensation, it must be approved by a judge, before anything is finalised.
When the settlement is approved it is held in a court-approved bank account until your child reaches the age of 18.
A child cannot access their money until the age of 18 which means that you can rest assured that the settlement will be held securely until they are old enough to spend it wisely. Even so, it is possible to request that funds are released to cover some exceptional expenses, such as medical costs.
Are There Time Limits To Make A Claim?
Most personal injury claims must be made within three years of the accident or the date of knowledge. But when a child is injured, this time limit does not start until their 18th birthday. So, no matter how old your child is, he/she has until their 21st birthday to bring a claim.
Should I Accept A Settlement Offer From An Insurance Company?
Sometimes insurance companies offer an injured adult compensation to cover their injuries, and also those of their children.
DO NOT ACCEPT ANY COMPENSATION OFFER FROM AN INSURANCE COMPANY WITHOUT SPEAKING TO US FIRST!
It could result in your child being under-compensated. Furthermore, your child’s settlement will not be protected for their future.
Insurance companies often make offers to try to settle claims without medical reports and legal advice and this can be against your best interests! Talk to us first.
