    Claiming compensation for a phone charger injury


    How safe do you think your phone charger is? If you have bought one from a well-known shop or provider and it has the CE mark on it complete with details of the brand it is associated with, you should be just fine. However there are plenty of chargers on the market today that do not have these details. They are usually a fraction of the price of branded chargers and many of them are far from being safe to use.

    It is reasonable to expect a charger to be fit for the purpose it is sold for. The best advice is to only ever buy branded chargers you know are suitable for the particular device(s) you want to charge. Cheaper ones usually mean much cheaper components and very often it is these components that can lead to a far-increased risk of injury to the user.

    There have been cases where phone chargers like this have become excessively hot when used. This can lead to a fire (and has done, in some situations). Needless to say the danger involved here is very real and it could end up costing you a lot. It is far better to invest in a proper well-made charger you can rely on.

    How severe can injuries from a faulty phone charger be?

    They can be very severe indeed. You may be burned by one if it becomes hot during use. Alternatively it could lead to a fire and that can lead to all kinds of injuries and even fatalities in some cases. Claiming compensation for a phone charger injury is your right if you have suffered as a result of owning one. It is right to expect the highest safety standards to have been adhered to when you are buying such a charger, and if this doesn’t happen you have the right to consider suing.
