FAQs about defective product accident claims
For many, a defective product is the last thing you expect to cause an injury in your own home.
There are a number of injuries caused by faulty products reported each year, in which innocent consumers have suffered a wide range of injuries using products that were not fit for purpose. At Accident Advice Helpline, we have been handling faulty product accident claims in Swansea since 2000. We have compiled some questions commonly asked during the process along with the answers, making it easy for you to get the information you need if you’re considering making a compensation claim.
How do I know if I can make a claim?
According to UK law, you can make a claim if you have been injured within the past three years, and can prove the negligence of another party caused this injury to occur. Where defective products are concerned, this means you can make a claim if you’ve been using things like children’s toys, furniture, home appliances, chemical products (such as hair dye or cleaning products) or electronics that have somehow lead to injury through no fault of your own. In many cases, these defective products will be recalled by the manufacturer, but if you’ve already suffered an injury – whether it be a burn, laceration or more serious injury – you could be entitled to receive compensation.
How much will I get?
This depends on the extent of the injury, as well as the financial ramifications it has had. For example, if you have suffered an injury that has caused you to take time off work, you could make a claim to recover this lost income as well as receive compensation for the physical injury itself. To find out how much you could be owed, take thirty seconds to fill in our online claims calculator.
