A Claimant in a personal injury claim is an injured person who is making a claim for compensation against the party responsible for their injury (the Defendant).

If the claimant is an injured child (or is otherwise unable to manage a claim themselves), a friend or family member can act as a litigation friend to handle the claim on the claimant's behalf.
