Are you making a ‘no win, no fee’ Wigan compensation claim because a child has been injured on a faulty bike?
When children first learn to ride a bike, they often use a tricycle or a bike with stabilisers. This can make it slightly easier and can help them to gain confidence before they move on to riding a standard bike. When parents or guardians purchase a bike for their child, they want to make sure that it’s as safe as possible. Whilst many shops do sell pre-packed bikes, many people prefer to visit a store which will put the bike together for them. Many parents feel that their child will be safer if the bike is assembled and tested by a professional.
Although this can help to reduce accidents, this doesn’t mean that your child won’t fall off. For most young people, falling off your bike whilst learning to ride is inevitable and most children escape with a few minor cuts and grazes, providing they are using the appropriate safety equipment.
However, if the bike isn’t assembled or manufactured correctly, they could face more serious injuries. If, for example, the handlebars were loose and become disconnected from the frame of the bike, they could suffer a very serious injury indeed. Similarly, if the frame of the bike was warped or bent, they may find it difficult to ride and they could easily fall off.
If a manufacturing fault does cause your child to suffer an injury, you may want to help them to make a ‘no win, no fee’ Wigan compensation claim. Although it’s unlikely that they would be able to obtain compensation alone, you could make a ‘no win, no fee’ Wigan claim on their behalf and they could still be awarded compensation.
