Whenever we purchase products from a shop or other company, we expect them to be fit for purpose, and we also expect them to be safe for use. Companies and manufacturers invest large sums of money, in most cases, to ensure quality control and to provide a perfectly safe product to the end consumer, but this isn’t always the case.
If you have been involved in an accident involving a dangerous or faulty product, and have suffered injury or other form of loss as a result of this accident, then you could be entitled to make a claim against the manufacturer or the retailer. Your solicitor will be able to determine who to claim against, and they will also help to determine a reasonable and fair compensation figure while ensuring that you are ably represented in court.
There are many possible examples of faulty product claims. For example, if you purchased an item like a chair or even a bicycle, got it home, and it collapsed when you sat on it, then you may be able to submit a compensation claim and successfully claim compensation for the injuries that you suffer. Manufacturers may include safe usage details in instructions or on the box, and your solicitor will need to determine whether these exist and whether they prevent you from being able to claim.
Electrical goods are another common cause of dangerous product claims. They have to undergo rigorous testing, and while the majority are safe to use, there are some that do make it through quality control and still have defects or problems. Recall notices are issued for this very reason, and if a company failed to recall an item that you have purchased, and you subsequently suffer an injury or accident, then you should be able to successfully claim compensation.
Compensation figures do vary according to the accident that you suffered, the severity of your injuries, and the value of any other loss that you endured. Contact a personal injury solicitor to discuss your case. They will be able to check product details, determine whether you have a right to claim, and support you throughout the case.
