We all expect the products we buy to be safe, however, if you or a loved one were injured by a faulty product you can call our No Win No Fee Solicitors for a free consultation on freephone 0808 175 8000 or start your claim online and we’ll call you.
98% of our Personal Injury Claims are funded through a Conditional Fee Agreement, which is more commonly known as a No Win No Fee agreement. This means there is no financial risk to you.
We all expect the products we buy to be safe and in good condition, but this isn’t always the case. Any product from cosmetics to toasters to sofas can cause injury if it isn’t up to scratch. You can also claim compensation if you are injured by a service provider such as a beautician or hairdresser.
Our Personal Injury Solicitors are experts in getting compensation for children and adults injured by defective goods or faulty products. If your personal injuries are severe, you may require rehabilitation and we will support you through the rehabilitation process.
Common Faulty Product Injuries Include:
- A broken arm caused by falling off a defective ladder
- Poisoning caused by contaminated food bought in a shop
- Burns caused by electrical goods breaking or catching fire
- Scarring caused by contaminated cosmetics.
Reasons for Products to be Faulty Include:
- A manufacturer failing to recall a product it knows is faulty
- Poor product design
- Contamination during manufacturing
- Failure to display sufficient warning on a product.
Manufacturers can’t escape liability just by putting a term in a contract.
Ensure you keep the faulty product or photographs of the faulty product and any documents relating to your claim, such as packaging, instructions and, importantly, purchase receipts.
