Baby buggies and their dangers
When you have a new baby, one thing you really should invest in is a decent buggy. There are few things worse than having haul around a cheap pushchair that’s difficult to manoeuvre. There’s no need to spend north of £1,000 on one like some people do; that’s just silly and pretentious, even if you can easily afford it. You can get a perfectly good buggy for a couple of hundred quid these days.
However, no matter how reputable the brand you buy, there will be a possibility that you might be unfortunate enough to purchase a defective buggy that could end up doing your baby an injury. If you think about the many thousands of buggies that are manufactured and sold each year, the law of averages dictates that one or two faulty pushchairs will make their way into shops.
If a problematic pushchair were to injure your child, there will be a chance that you might be able to sue the company that made it for a personal injury compensation pay-out with the help of a top 100% no win no fee personal injury lawyer in Redditch.
Defective buggies and personal injury lawyer in Redditch
Maybe your child sustained an injury to her hand after a faulty mechanism on your buggy closed when it shouldn’t have. Perhaps the seat section of your buggy collapsed when you placed your baby in it, causing her to fall to the ground and receive a nasty bump to the head.
Perchance one of your buggy’s wheels came off without warning. In all of these circumstances and a range of others like them, you might have cause to engage a personal injury lawyer in Redditch to claim compensation on behalf of your baby, and for the stress you have been caused.
The amount that you might be able to win on behalf of your child will very much depend on the nature and severity of her injuries. Use the 30-second claims calculator on the right of this page if you’d like to get a rough idea of the sort of amount you might be able to secure.
If your claim were to be successful, you could put the money in a trust fund for your child that she would not be able to touch until she was 18. This would probably come in very useful for university, or even the deposit on a house if your win were substantial enough.
