There is no joy that can compare with that of becoming a parent. Whether the baby is a first or a fourth, the happiness of the family, the hope of the new life and the anticipation of first smiles, steps and days at school make for the happiest time of your life.
One of the best things to do as an expectant parent is to buy all of the equipment you’ll need for your new baby. From cots to car seats, babies might be tiny but they need a lot of equipment!
As a parent, you put your faith into these products and if something goes wrong, you’ll want to know that Harlow ‘no win, no fee’ solicitors can seek compensation on your behalf.
Whilst all products made in the United Kingdom are rigorously tested for safety purposes, those intended for babies and children are subject to even more stringent testing. The companies that make them are under close scrutiny and should anything go wrong they are quickly pulled from public sale for safety purposes.
Whilst it is comforting to know that such measures are undertaken, having a piece of equipment that you have brought to use or place your most treasured possession – your baby – into, become faulty can be a horrible situation.
Imagine that the wheels on a pram were to become loose whilst you were out walking with your baby. Not only could the pram tip or fold leaving your baby subject to injuries but you could become stranded with the child alone and away from anyone who could help.
It’s highly likely in this situation that you could experience psychological trauma from seeing your baby involved in an accident.
In this situation, Harlow ‘no win, no fee’ solicitors can offer a solution. Compensation exists to ensure that your suffering does not turn into a loss.
You have placed your trust into the manufacturers of the pram in question and as a result your baby may have experienced injuries. The company who manufactured the pram should have taken all necessary and reasonable steps to ensure that the product they were selling was safe and suitable for its’ purpose. This is known as a “Duty of Care” and in the event that that company failed in their duty of care, you have a legal right to seek compensation through Harlow no win no fee solicitors.
Making a Claim with Harlow ‘No Win, No Fee’ Solicitors
The compensation that is available will be awarded if it can be shown that the accident which occurred was as a result, either directly or indirectly, of the action of the manufacturer of the pram.
By means of a 30 second test, Harlow ‘no win, no fee’ solicitors can help to establish whether there is a case to answer. Accident Advice Helpline have helped thousands of people who have suffered accidents they did not cause, to seek the compensation they deserve.
