Toys come in all shapes and sizes. Many of us remember our favourite toys from our youth. If you are now a parent you will no doubt already have bought plenty of toys for your own children as well.
While the vast majority of toys are perfectly safe to use and enjoy, occasionally one may slip through the net that is unsafe in some way or form. If your child has been injured by using a toy that is not fit for purpose, there could be a chance there for you to claim faulty toy injury compensation.
Recalls of unfit toys
Sometimes a manufacturer will realise there is a problem with one of their toys. If so, they will recall all those toys to make sure no one is in any danger. Recalls are rare but they can play a crucial part in protecting children who may otherwise be in danger.
However, it could be that your child has been injured while playing with a toy of some kind. Perhaps the toy broke or there were sharp edges where there should have been none. Whatever the case may be, there are instances where children could potentially be injured if they are playing with a toy that has not been properly manufactured.
Find out about the prospect of faulty toy injury compensation
Compensation is often paid out in cases where someone has been injured because of the actions of a third party. In this case you may be able to make a claim on behalf of your child if they have been hurt because of a faulty toy.
Injuries can range from being fairly minor to far more serious, but you never know how badly they might affect your child in the future. They could have knock-on effects – ones you are unaware of.
