We all expect the products we buy and food we consume to be safe and fit for purpose, but this isn’t always the case. Most products that you purchase are completely safe for their intended use, however, accidents do happen and sometimes dangerous products are sold to the public. Sadly at times these defective products do cause personal injury. If this happens, a claim for damages can be bought against the manufacturer or retailer of a defective or faulty product.
Here at Ralli Solicitors, we can help you if you have suffered an injury or fallen ill because of a faulty or defective product.
How We Can Help You Claim Compensation For Personal Injury Because Of A Faulty Or Defective Product
Our expert team have been working on cases arising from injuries caused by faulty or defective products since 1973 and have extensive experience in successfully recovering compensation for those harmed or injured by a defective or faulty product.
Types of faulty or defective product claims
We have experience in handling many types of injury compensation claims due to dangerous or defective goods and products, including:
- defective hair dye (or insufficient warnings) resulting in severe allergic reactions
- defective packaging
- injuries caused by unsafe medical devices including faulty cosmetic implants, including breast implants and defective hip joints
- injuries caused by defective home, electrical and garden products
- cuts and bruises caused by faulty equipment and appliances
- injuries to children caused by playing with defective toys
- injuries caused by defective work equipment.
When you choose to purchase or use a product, that product or equipment should be safe to use in the way it was designed to be used. The product should be functional and perform the task it was created to do without causing undue harm to the person using it or those around them.
The Consumer Protection Act 1987 states that if a product causes personal injury, and that it wasn’t due to misuse of the product, then the person injured has a legal right to make a product liability compensation claim against the retailer or manufacturer responsible.
If you were using a product correctly and it malfunctioned, or if it was defective and you were injured as a result, then we could help you make a defective product compensation claim.
The accident or injury must have happened within the last three years.
We understand that if you’ve been injured by a defective or faulty product, you injury may have seriously affected your daily life. You may have had to take time off work to recover from your injury, or pay for medical treatment, physiotherapy, rehabilitation or travel which was needed to aid your recovery. Making a compensation claim for the effects a faulty or defective product has had on your life can help to recover lost earnings, pay for medical expenses, travel and any other additional costs you’ve had to pay as a result of your injury.
By making a compensation claim, you will also be highlighting the unsafe nature of the product to the manufacturer or retailer which will prevent others from experiencing what you’ve been through. It may lead them to recall the product and/or making changes to ensure their products are safer for others to use in the future.
Our aim is to recover the maximum amount of compensation that you need to get your life back on track following injury.
Everyone has been so warm and friendly and have taken the time to explain all steps to get a satisfactory result. Thank you.
