Child Injury Claims

When your child is injured in an accident, no amount of money can ease the pain and distress of what happened.
Our empathetic personal injury lawyers at Stacks Goudkamp know that no amount of benefits or compensation can make things right, but we will fight to secure your child the maximum compensation possible to help secure their future.
We have over 40 years’ experience in securing benefits and compensation for injured people and especially children. We have worked tirelessly with parents, hospitals and insurers to get the best treatment and care for kids when they are injured. We have acted for hundreds of children successfully obtaining compensation for wide ranging injuries from relatively minor injuries to catastrophic injuries, including the Plaintiff in the case of Stubbs v NRMA which, at the time, was the highest personal injury compensation award in NSW.
To read some examples of the successful claims that we have brought on behalf of injured children, visit our case studies page.

Who represents the child?

Whether a child suffers a modest or more serious injury, while they are under 18 they do not have the legal capacity to bring a claim in their own right. It is therefore necessary for someone to act as a ‘Tutor’ to bring the claim on behalf of the child. This is usually a family member. Our specialist child injury lawyers will explain the rights and responsibilities that come with this role of being a ‘Tutor’, and advise you on the safeguards to put in place to ensure that your child is fairly compensated.

I could write a book as to how the last 4 years would have been different if not for Tom and his team.
The support, assistance, advice from the first conversation till even after the settlement was second to none from the team at Stacks Goudkamp.
Four years on and after many downs, my children and I have our lives back.
We are unable to THANK YOU enough, but know that you have changed our lives for the better in so many ways since the accident.
