Pushchairs are one item that you don’t want to have to make a faulty product claim on. They are meant to cradle your baby and keep them sheltered from the elements. However, when a pushchair becomes faulty it can cause accidents such as slips, trips or falls.
How can a pushchair cause a slip, trip or fall when faulty?
One way in which a pushchair becomes faulty is when the wheel mechanism or even the wheels themselves break. If you do not notice this and they suddenly seize up or make the pushchair swerve this could cause you or others a fall injury.
How else could a pushchair cause a slip, trip or fall injury?
In the worst instance the fall injury could be sustained by your child should the main body of the pushchair become weakened and break causing the child or baby to fall through the material. This could be especially harmful, so it is always best to thoroughly check the main part of the pushchair regularly to avoid a nasty fall injury for you or your baby. Any injuries, especially a slip, trip or fall, for a young child can potentially be very dangerous, so always make sure your equipment, in particular, the items you use regularly, are in good condition and fully working to prevent any slip, trip or fall injuries.
