Defective Product Claims

Products that cause injuries due to defections can result in an injury claim. With most products being mass produced these days it is quite likely that a few batches will be dodgy. Read below to find out if you may be eligible to claim.

Types of Defective Product

There are a variety of products that could inflict injury on the consumer if they are defective:

  • Toxic Sofas: A lot of couches contain flame-retardant chemicals which can be dangerous to us. If you have suffered any burns or rashes from a ‘toxic sofa’ give us a call.
  • Defective cosmetic products: If you have any skin marks or blemishes from a defective make-up product you could be entitled to make a claim.
  • Hair straighteners: Broken hair styling equipment can cause serious burns.
  • Electrical appliances: Faulty electrical equipment can cause electric shocks, you can claim for these.
  • Defective toys: Children can get injured by playing with toys and games that are defective.

Faulty Product Injuries

Unfortunately, faulty product injuries are becoming quite common. Some well-known faulty product injuries include:

  • Broken bones after falling from a faulty ladder.
  • Various burns caused by faulty electrical goods.
  • Food poisoning from contaminated food and poor shop hygeine.
  • Scars and burns from faulty cosmetic products.

There are a number of factors that can lead up to a faulty product ending up in your hands. Sometimes, manufacturers can be aware of their faulty goods but they will fail to recall them in time. Furthermore, some products suffer from poor design and bad manufacturing practices, causing them to be faulty right from the very start. The manufacturers have a responsibility and they cannot escape this by amending their terms and conditions - if you've been injured by a faulty product then you could be eligible to claim.

Making a Defective Product Claim

If you would like to make a defective product claim, you need to be able to prove that the injury was caused by the product; taking pictures will help with this. You should also keep any receipts relating to the product purchase and get in contact with any witnesses if there were any. Your claim must be made within 3 years of the accident taking place.

If you think you can make a claim or just need some expert advice, feel free to give us a call on 0161 763 8260 or fill in our contact form and one of our professionals will get back to you as soon as possible.
