12. What if I am claiming for a child?

If a child has been injured, the time limit for making a claim normally does not start until their 18th birthday – but you don’t have to wait until then to start a claim. Someone under 18 cannot take legal action in their own right, but must have a ‘litigation friend’. This could be:

  • a close relative;
  • an adult friend;
  • a social worker; or
  • someone else appointed by the court.

13. What if I am one of a group of people injured in the same way?

14. What if I'm a victim of crime?
