If you have toddlers, it’s almost certain you own a pushchair, but how many times have you stopped to think about what could happen if your pushchair was faulty? A faulty pushchair could collapse, injuring you or your child, and the consequences could be serious. If something like this has happened to you, help is at hand.
You can contact personal injury advisors at Accident Advice Helpline for pushchair injury compensation advice and find out more about how to make a claim at any point after your accident, provided it has been three years or less since you were injured. If your child has been injured, you could be entitled to claim personal injury compensation on their behalf, as well as compensation for your own loss of earnings.
Faulty pushchairs and injuries
A faulty pushchair or pram which collapses or breaks suddenly could cause serious injury, particularly to young babies who could fall from height. Head injuries or spinal injuries could occur, but even minor injuries such as cuts could occur if pushchairs have broken parts and your toddler is travelling in them. You could suffer crush injuries to your fingers or even broken fingers or a fractured wrist if a folding pushchair collapses suddenly on your hand, and the manufacturer of the pushchair could be held liable if you are injured. It’s possible to get pushchair injury compensation advice and make a claim for personal injury compensation even for minor injuries, provided somebody else is at fault.
Compensation for loss of earnings
If your baby or toddler has been injured by a faulty pushchair, you’ll almost certainly need to take time off work to care for them until they recover.
