Buggy Firm Agrees Personal Injury Compensation

Buggy Firm Agrees Personal Injury CompensationUK buggy manufacturer Maclaren has agreed personal injury compensation for over 40 UK children who were seriously injured by the hinges of its buggies and pushchairs.  Some of the children lost the tips of their fingers.

This follows a long-running compensation claims saga which began in late 2009 when Maclaren recalled one million products in the US after reports of injuries to children there.

Maclaren insisted at the time that UK buggies were not affected and a UK recall did not taken place.  Howver, several reports of similar injuries, caused by the buggies’ folding and hinge system, started to emerge in the UK.

Although refusing to admit liability, Maclaren has agreed personal injury compensation with the aid of its insurers and have agreed to make full compensation damages awards. The individual amounts are dependent on the severity of injuries in each personal injury case and the money will be invested until the children reach age 18.
