    When is a faulty goods claim bad?


    Anyone involved in an accident that is not their fault is entitled to claim for compensation, even if the injury stems from faulty goods.

    It may be argued that an individual can’t claim but when is a faulty goods claim bad?

    Clearly if an accident at work or at home is caused by misuse or incorrect use of the goods then a claim is unlikely to succeed. Also, if the injury caused by a person was their own fault, then again a claim will not be considered. Similarly a claim has to be made within three years of the accident.

    But if the previous three caveats do not come into consideration then a compensation claim can be made and Accident Advice Helpline are the ideal law firm to help make the claim.

    Their professional, expert advisers will go through the facts of the case and guide individuals through the process. If an accident, resulting in injury, was caused by faulty goods a claim for compensation can be made.

    The 1987 Consumer Protection Act, states that if a personal injury is caused by an unsafe or defective product, then the injured individual is legally entitled to make a claim for adequate compensation against the manufacturer or manufacturer responsible.

    Before making a faulty goods compensation claim

    Claimants looking to set the process in motion should ensure they have reported any accident at work and this should be documented and all evidence recorded, including details of the faulty goods or devices.

    It will also be important for the individual to show the injury was the result of the faulty product and it was being used correctly and all safety instructions were being adhered to.

    Initiate product liability claims

    Compensation for workplace accidents needs to be claimed within three years but it is better to initiate the process as soon as possible. Sometimes an injury resulting from a faulty goods product may not be immediate but injuries or illness may occur gradually over a prolonged period of time.
