Claiming compensation on behalf of a child
Under UK law a ‘child’ or a ‘minor’ is a person under the age of 18 years. Children cannot make their own personal injury claim but need a responsible adult, usually a parent or guardian, to bring the claim on the child’s behalf. For further information about making a child compensation claim please see our frequently asked questions.
