Ordinarily, claims for injury compensation must be made by the person who has been injured.

There are situations, however, where you can bring a claim on someone else’s behalf in the capacity of their ‘Litigation Friend’. These are cases where the injured person:

  • Is a child – under the age of 18
  • Is someone without mental capacity – whether this has been caused by the negligence in question or not


Where the victim of the negligence has passed away. It may be possible for a claim to be brought by the people who are dealing with the late person’s estate – or by certain people if they have suffered loss due to the late person’s death.

If you are thinking of bringing a claim on behalf of someone else, please make us aware of this so that we can advise you fully on your situation.
