UK kids injured by Maclaren buggies to receive payout
Buggy manufacturer Maclaren has agreed to compensate children who have been injured while travelling around in their wheeled contraptions.
More than 40 families came forward and complained that their children had been hurt by the collapsible buggies, with some of them losing fingertips in the hinges. Although Maclaren are stumping up some cash, they are refusing to admit liability in any of the cases.
Last November, the company recalled a million buggies in the United States of A following reports of infant finger-knack – protective hinge covers were then issued to UK Maclaren users.
The amount awarded is believed to be between £2,500 and £10,000 per child depending on the severity of the injuries.
