Key Considerations:

1. Age Requirement:

For a claim to be brought on behalf of a child, the child must be under 18 years old.

2. Negligence as the Cause:

The basis for initiating a claim is when the child’s injury results from the negligent actions of another party.

The Role of a Guardian/Next Friend:

3. Appointment of a Guardian:

Recognizing that a child cannot legally represent themselves, a ‘Guardian/Next Friend’ must be appointed to act in their best interests.

4. Eligibility of the Guardian/Next Friend:

The Guardian/Next Friend must be over the age of 18. While it is commonly a parent, it can also be another family member or a close friend who takes on this responsibility.

5. Court Funds Office

The Court Funds Office is tasked with holding and managing the compensation awarded to a minor by the court.
