Have you ever been injured after buying and using a faulty product before? This happens very often and sadly many individuals do not follow this up correctly. When a manufacturing company produces and subsequently sells an item, they have a duty to ensure that these do not cause harm to the buyer. This is the case even after any type of warranty or guarantee has expired. You may be able to make a claim for faulty product compensation if you feel that you have been injured in this way.
What is a faulty product injury?
This is a common phrase that covers many different scenarios, and this happens very often in the UK. The manufacturer of these products has a liability to the general public, if the faulty product causes any type of injury whatsoever, the company that made this item may be liable for a financial compensation claim. Just imagine if you bought a motorcar and whilst you were driving it, the engine exploded and you had an accident. You could end up with severe injuries or even worse. The result of your accident could mean serious financial loss, including the vehicle cost. You may have to spend an extended period of time away from work, or perhaps you may even lose your job. All of this happened through no fault of your own, and that is just not fair. This example could just as easily be a faulty hairdryer that caused a serious electric shock or perhaps a children’s toy that somehow injured your child. All of these are examples of faulty products that may cause a serious injury.
