How to decide the amount of compensation you should expect for child head injury claims
Regretfully – children in the UK have many accidents. One of the most common types of accident is a child head injury.
The law in the UK is designed so far as is possible to protect and compensate children in the event of an accident which considered legally due to the fault of another.
If child head injury claims are successful – the amount of compensation a child can receive will depend on four things:
1. The nature and the severity of the head injury.
2. Case law in the UK that decides the level of compensation for pain and suffering for such a head injury.
3. A barristers opinion on how much the level of compensation should be.
4. The court’s assessment of the injuries and the barrister’s opinion at a minor settlement hearing.
