Product Liability Claims

Product liability / faulty types of product, can be literally anything that you have purchased, that when you used or consumed in the way that it was intended to be, has harmed you in the process. If this has happened to you, you may be entitled to make a product liability personal injury claim.

When we have spent money on new products or goods; the least we expect is for them to be safe. Despite all the rules and regulations set down by the Government and the EU, to ensure all sold goods/products are safe and fit for intended use; faulty goods and instructions still slip through the net.

Have you been injured by a product as a result of a defect? If your answer is yes; you may be entitled to make a personal injury claim for product liability. Producers and product manufacturers have a responsibility to ensure that their products are safe for consumers to use. We deal with all types of product liability claims; from serious burns and accidents, right through to a crashed car resulting from preventable faults. Compensation for faulty product claims consists of; General Damages, (for pain, suffering and loss of amenity) and Special Damages, (to cover medical fees and out of pocket expenses).

Examples of product liabilty include:

  • Household furniture

    such as an office chair that collapses under your weight. Some quite serious back accidents have happened this way.

  • Electricals

    -washing machines, dishwashers and any other electrical appliances with faulty electrics, have the capacity to cause electric shocks or fire leading to burns and other such personal injuries.

  • Food

    whether from a supermarket, restaurant, deli or other such vendor – they should all know how to keep their food fit for consumption. If they do not then others may fall ill from the same problem.
