About Product Liability Claims
Manufacturers and those that sell or supply their products must ensure that they are safe to use. If there is a fault in the product, or it is defective in any way and you are injured, you can claim compensation.
Personal injury might be caused by any defective goods but the most common we have seen appear in cases includes:
- Beauty and hair care products
- Tools/DIY products Food
- Medicinal products
Making a product liability claim can be a complex process, which is why it is always preferable to seek legal advice from an experienced solicitor.
What to do if you have been injured
If you have sustained an injury through no fault of your own, in addition to any physical pain you may also have suffered psychologically. Falling ill or being injured by a defective product can be extremely worrying, but the first thing you must do is seek medical assistance.
Once you have been examined by a medical professional it is important you contact us to tell us how the accident happened, and provide information about the injuries or illness you have developed so we can form your case appropriately. Our solicitors assess each claim on its own merits to determine how likely it is that we will be successful.
Defective Appliance Claims
Consumers today come into contact with several electronic appliances every day, each designed to carry out specific functions to make life that little bit easier. And while these gadgets are often very easy to use and can last many years, sometimes they can malfunction and cause injury, even leading to long-term health problems.
Appliances such as cookers and microwaves can pose a great risk to your safety if they are not in the correct working order. And if you have been affected by faulty appliances, you could be entitled to compensation.
Remember, manufacturers have a responsibility to ensure their products are safe to use, and if they fail to do this you could be entitled to make a claim. To discuss your legal rights with a solicitor, contact us today on 0333 323 5292, or fill in the enquiry form on this page and a member of the team will get back to you.
About your claim
Anyone who has been injured by a defective appliance could be entitled to make a claim, even if you have not purchased the offending item yourself. In some cases, people have been injured after using something that has been given to them. Every case is different.
Who are you claiming against?
Claiming compensation does not necessarily mean you will be taking money from the personal funds of the appliance manufacturer. All businesses are legally required to have insurance policies in place in case this type of incident occurs. Therefore, you should not feel worried about making a claim.
The money you receive will come from the insurance policy of the offending company, so do not feel anxious about the impact your claim will have.
Why should you claim?
Compensation is there to help your life return to normal as quickly as possible following a stressful event and to help you in your daily life.
If you have been unable to work due to an injury caused by a faulty appliance, claiming compensation will help you to pay your bills and to lead as normal a life as possible.
