Every parent knows how valuable a highchair can be. It is ideal for making sure your child can sit safely while being fed, and cannot get out or be hurt.
Highchairs are built to exacting standards, and companies that make them are careful to ensure all the required standards are met (and often exceeded) at all times.
Unfortunately there have been isolated cases where highchairs have caused accidents and injuries to those who are using them. They are very rare but they have sometimes happened. For example if a highchair is unstable it might topple over if the child leans forward even by a small amount.
As you can imagine this could cause serious injury. Similarly there could be a mechanism by which the highchair can be folded up safely. If the child catches their fingers in this mechanism it could cause significant damage.
Has your child been harmed in this way?
Perhaps you are reading this article because your child has recently suffered an accident involving a faulty highchair. If so, you may have a chance to see if claiming faulty highchair compensation is a possibility. If the injuries were caused through the fault of the manufacturer, through supplying a faulty product, you have a right to try and claim compensation.
Faulty highchair compensation cases can be managed on a no win, no fee basis. This means you are never at any risk of losing out in any way. If you have a strong case there is a good chance it may well end successfully.
Finding out the answers you need
When your child is injured it can be a very upsetting experience. You can end up being stressed and upset, and worried about your child’s health and well-being. A small child may become frightened and refuse to use a highchair again. Mental anguish can be compensated for in some cases, as well as physical injuries.
