Was your child injured by a toy?

It’s a sad fact of life that every year many children are injured by toys. From minor injuries such as cuts and bruises to eye and facial injuries and even fatalities, toys are not always as safe as we think they are. Here are a few ways to ensure that you reduce the risk of child injury:

  • Make sure you follow age guidelines. Some toys may have small parts which may not be suitable for younger children
  • Buy from a reputable retailer and make sure the toy has a CE mark
  • Check toys are working and not broken before purchasing
  • Keep toys clean by washing regularly or wiping over with disinfectant
  • Check toys regularly to make sure there are no broken parts which could become loose

This will reduce the risk of injury occurring, however if your child is injured as the result of playing with a faulty toy, you could claim for compensation.

Compensation for child injury

If your child has been struck by flying parts, choked on a small, broken toy part or suffered other injuries, the toy manufacturers could be at fault and you may be able to claim for compensation. You’ll need to prove the toy was faulty, labelled inappropriately or broken and that this directly caused injury to your child. Whilst this might sound simple enough in theory, you really need the services of a specialist personal injury compensation lawyer, so that they can present your case to the other side. Most personal injury claims are straightforward, and here at Accident Advice Helpline we can process the majority of cases over the phone. However, if the other side denies liability or disagrees with the amount of the claim, your case may go to court, so it’s important to be prepared.

How we can help

You’ll need to keep evidence of any medical treatment your child has received for his or her injuries – if they need ongoing care and treatment then the cost of this will be taken into consideration. If you have needed time off work to care for them and suffered loss of earnings, this will also be accounted for when you claim. Accident Advice Helpline has been dealing with child injury claims since 2000, so you know we’re experienced at what we do. Our 100% no win, no fee* service ensures there are no costly fees to pay upfront, and you can call us on our freephone advice line 24/7 on 0800 689 0500 whether you want to get the ball rolling on your claim or just have questions about the claims process.
