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.
