Prams are invaluable for many parents. You can use them from birth onwards and they are indispensable for the first stages of a child’s life. There are many different designs and styles available, so you are sure to find something that will suit your budget, your needs and your likes and dislikes too.
However, regardless of the make, model or style you like most, or your budget, you would expect one thing to be true of all prams on the market today. They should all be very safe to use and pose no danger at all, either to you or your baby. Fortunately very few prams ever develop faults, particularly as great care is taken to ensure they are safe in every single way.
What if something does go wrong?
Occasionally you may read something in the press about a faulty pram that has been recalled for some reason. It is very rare to read about a pram actually causing a child an injury of some kind. However if there has been a fault in the manufacturing process there is the potential for something to go wrong.
While this may not be common, this reality is of no help to the parent whose child might have been injured by a collapsing or otherwise-dangerous pram. Perhaps you have been involved in just such an incident. If so, you will know how frightening it can be. Your child is so important to you, and you feel responsible for something like this happening, even though it is not your fault.
Seek professional legal advice
It is small wonder then that most people will assess the chances of claiming dangerous pram compensation in a situation like this. Dangerous pram compensation might be paid if there is ample evidence that the manufacturer provided faulty goods for sale that were not fit for the purpose they were intended for.
