    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Esther Rantzen

    Who initiates a faulty product claim?


    When you buy a new product, you can expect it to have undergone a series of tests to ensure its safety. More often than not this is the case and you can enjoy your purchase without risk of personal injury. Occasionally, however, a faulty product slips through the safety checks and an injury by faulty product may occur. In this case you may want to consider a faulty product claim for compensation.

    When products are faulty

    When an accident at work, in the home or anywhere else, for that matter, is caused by a defective product, the person injured could be entitled to personal injury compensation. This applies to all types of products, from electrical or electronic equipment causing injuries by electrocution or fires to bottles that break in consumers hands to toxic or insecure furniture, faulty ladders causing falls from height or contaminated food causing outbreaks of food poisoning.

    In a nutshell

    In other words, any defective product that causes someone to sustain an accidental injury could entitle the injured individual to make a faulty product claim. Any injuries by slips, trips and falls; electrocution, fire or explosion; inhalation of toxic fumes or consumption of contaminated food or drinks will entitle victims to make defective goods claims if a faulty product caused these injuries, regardless of the type of product.

    How to make claims

    The first step in claiming for compensation following injuries by faulty product is to make contact with a reputable law firm like Accident Advice Helpline. Once you have spoke with one of our Freephone helpline advisors, your claim eligibility will be established, and you will be offered the services of an in-house lawyer. Backed by the company’s years of claim industry experience, this solicitor will be able to settle your claim quickly and effectively.

    What to expect

    Your Accident Advice Helpline lawyer may be able to deal with most aspects of your personal injury claim over the phone. He or she may also manage to prevent the case from having to go to court, although this can not be promised, as all cases differ in circumstances. In a similar fashion, it will not be possible to predict exactly how much faulty product compensation you will ultimately receive or how long it will take to settle the claim.
