Accident claims in New Forest


Manufacturers and importers both have a legal duty to make sure that the products they supply for consumers are safe, and will not cause accidents that result in injury. If they do not comply with this law and you suffer an injury because of the item, then you may be entitled to make accident claims in New Forest to claim compensation from them.

We have all at some point bought an item that turns out to be faulty, and returned it to wherever we purchased it from for a refund or replacement. But if that item is more than faulty, if it is dangerous and has caused you harm, then you may want to make accident claims in New Forest, by using the lawyers from Accident Advice Helpline to help you.

How to avoid accident claims in New Forest if risks are involved

There will always be some products that involve an element of risk to certain consumers. You could have an allergic reaction to something for instance, and warnings that this may happen should be on the product.  If there is any risk with a product, it should be clearly marked with warnings that are easily understandable, so that consumers take take the necessary precautions when they are using it.

The safety of goods should be continually monitored, and if any safety issues are found they should be addressed immediately. This is exactly why you sometimes see a product being recalled. It can be months after the product has been on sale that the problem is discovered and there could be many of them already in use.  Cars are a typical example of this, the makers recalling many thousands of cars as soon as they realise there is a safety issue.

It does not matter how big or small the product, the rules and regulations still apply to everything. If you are injured because of a faulty product, then call Accident Advice Helpline for some advice on making a personal injury claim.

Retailers need to be careful as well

Although the ultimate responsibility is not with the retailers, they can be prosecuted if they knowingly sell a product that is unsafe. They need to take extra care with goods such as medicines, fireworks, or children’s toys, or they could be facing accidents claims in New Forest as well.
