Childhood injuries

Injuries sustained during childhood can have long lasting effects and the severity of these effects may not be apparent until years after the event. Whether children are affected by accidents at school or in playgrounds, or even on the road, it is important to secure the compensation that the child and their families deserve.

In more severe instances, this compensation might need to cover ongoing treatment or care and pay for childcare or medical expenses for many years. That is why it is important to choose expert, specialist solicitors for all accident compensation claims involving children and their families.

As one of the largest law firms in the UK, Stephensons boasts a team of experienced solicitors who specialise in accidents involving children. This means they are not only well versed in all relevant legislation, but they are also skilled in dealing with families and the sensitivity of these cases.
