If there is one group of products that you don’t want to be faulty, it’s the ones you use to transport your young child around. If you spare a moment to think about it, you’re investing an awful amount of trust in the companies that make buggies, slings and car seats.
If they are poorly made or badly designed, the consequences don’t bear thinking about. This is why it’s worth spending a few quid on this sort of thing. As with most products, you get what you pay for when it comes to baby equipment.
This is not to say that you won’t be able to expect that cheaper or budget baby and toddler equipment will be of a high enough quality to keep your child safe. All baby gear sold in the UK has to undergo rigorous safety checks before it is allowed to hit the shelves.
If you’re ever unfortunate enough to purchase a baby product that does your child any harm, there will be a chance that you might be able to sue its manufacturer for personal injury compensation with the aid of a decent practice of solicitors in Grizebeck. Depending on the severity of the injuries your child suffers, you could be looking at a pay-out of thousands of pounds.
Defective baby and toddler products and solicitors in Grizebeck
Imagine that you had decided to take your young baby out for a stroll. You feel like taking a walk over the fields behind your house where you’re not going to be able to take your buggy, so you decide to dig out that sling that you were given when your child was born.
You hook it up around your body and secure your child in place. All is well as you set out on your ramble, only for one of the straps on your sling to suddenly break. Fortunately, you manage to grab your child by the arm before she falls to the ground, but in doing so you dislocate her shoulder.
You take her to the hospital and explain what happened, and to your horror the staff appear to suggest that you may have intentionally harmed your daughter. After some time, you manage to convince them otherwise by showing them the defective sling.
If you were unfortunate enough for a situation of this type to befall you, there will be a chance that you might be able to use a practice of solicitors in Grizebeck to take personal injury action against the company that made the defective sling.
