Compensations - Children
Children’s rights to compensation due to personal injury are determined in accordance with general principles of Torts law. Children who, for example, suffer injury in car accidents have the same right as adults to claim compensation. The same goes for accidents in leisure time.
Many municipalities have purchased accident insurance for children who attend school and leisure time activities in their municipality. Children who suffer injuries at school or attending sports or similar leisure activities in these municipalities may be entitled to compensation from such insurance. Many sports clubs have purchased similar insurance.
If a child is the victim of an attack or a sexual offence the same basic rules apply concerning their right to compensation as apply to adults.
