Seeing your child suffering from illness or injury can be painfully upsetting and put you through a great deal of stress as their parent or guardian. If they are then let down by those responsible for treating them in their recovery, you can be left to feel let down and angry.


If you child has suffered due to poor care or negligence from medical professionals, then you can make a claim on their behalf. Otherwise, a child can make a claim for themselves once they are over the age of 18. Claims must be actioned within 3 years of knowledge, so for a child representing themselves they would need to issue a claim before their 21st birthday.


If a GP, obstetrician, nurse, surgeon or any healthcare provider has been negligent in treating your child then you may wish to explore making a claim.


Young children have their whole life ahead of them. Medical negligence can severely impact on their quality of life. Children who are left with disabilities or life-limiting illnesses due to professionals failing in their duties can require long-term care. Investigations can help other children from suffering the same fate and compensation can help towards any financial hardship you suffer whilst caring for your child and providing for them in later life.
