If you have been involved in an accident as a pedestrian, it can be distressing and in some cases, life changing. Children are particularly at risk from such accidents and are recorded as the most vulnerable people on roads in the UK as drivers usually fail to notice a pedestrian until it is too late.

As a parent or a guardian of a child who has fallen victim to a road accident, you are able to claim on behalf of an injured child who is under the age of 18. Whilst most claims that are made as an adult have a period of three years wherein you can claim compensation, a child has until their 21st birthday.

Most accidents involving pedestrians are caused when a driver is:

  • Driving too fast to react to a pedestrian’s whereabouts.
  • Driving negligently or not paying attention.
