Child injury claims

If your child is left injured or ill as a result of a medical error, our solicitors can help you get answers.

Starting your child's injury claim

When a child falls ill or suffers an injury we trust the medical experts to help. However as with all aspects of medical treatment, things can go wrong.

If something happened to your child, you don't have to suffer in silence.  Our medical negligence solicitors can help you find a way forward.

How we can help you

You’ll want to talk to someone who has the experience and knowledge to help you find out what has gone wrong and what you can do about it.

We understand what you’re going through and we know what it takes to help you through this difficult time.  Our solicitors understand the system inside out, and have years of practical experience in children’s claims.  We’ve worked with lots of families who’ve had similar experiences and we've helped our clients get answers about what went wrong as well as financial compensation.

Clear, practical advice

When you come to us for help, we’ll listen carefully to your story; we will ask you what’s happened and what outcome you might want. Then we’ll use our knowledge and experience to look closely at the details of your case and give you clear, honest and realistic advice. We’ll explain your options in plain language and recommend a way forward.

We’ll find out what went wrong

We understand that it is rarely about the money alone - for many people it’s more important to understand what went wrong, and to make sure that the same thing never happens to another family. We’ll help you do that.

Financial Compensation

We understand how an injury to a child can affect their future, and the future of the family as a whole - medical errors can have a lasting effect on your child's health, and quality of life.

We will tell you if your child has a case for compensation and we'll help you get the best possible settlement for them. Compensation gives your child financial security for the future, and can cover a wide range of costs. These include:

  • ongoing care, such as home visits by a nurse or professional carer
  • specialist equipment your child might need
  • housing needs, including adaptations
  • medical treatment and therapies 

Nothing can make up for your child’s suffering, but compensation can help make life easier. Compensation can give you and your family financial security for the future, particularly where there are lasting needs. 

With you every step of the way

We understand what you're going through, and we're here to give you a voice.  With Tees by your side, you are not alone. Our practical, specialist advice can help you move forward.

We know this is a hard time for you and your family, so we’ll do everything we can to make it easier.

We've handled many child injury claims and so, our lawyers really do have the practical experience to support you and your family. We're persistent, and we'll fight to get answers for you. Whether you’re looking to secure financial compensation or you just want to understand what happened, you can be confident that we’ll be with you all the way.

We’ll investigate your case as quickly, thoroughly and sensitively as we can. We’ll explain things in plain English and we’ll always keep you informed of what’s going on.

Tees looks at the big picture to give you the best advice - now, and for the future. Looking after your family’s immediate needs is a priority, but we also look at your future needs. We can bring in expertise from our financial, residential, and trusts teams. Together, we'll protect any compensation you receive and ensure it's managed effectively and efficiently. You can be confident that we’re fixed on getting the result that helps you and your family to begin putting your life back together.

Don’t worry about costs

We will not charge you to assess your child’s case – this will be free. 

After that, there are many ways you can pursue the case without you having to pay the costs as the case proceeds, e.g. Public Funding (legal aid), Insurance, a No Win, No Fee Agreement.  We will discuss the options with you once we have completed the free initial assessment but if you want to know more now, please get in touch.
