    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Esther Rantzen

    Accident Lawyer in Charnwood

    Sometimes innocent victims contact our accident lawyer in Charnwood because they have been harmed by a defective product and want to claim compensation for the injuries they have sustained. 

    Manufacturers, producers and importers all have a legal responsibility to ensure the products they supply to consumers are safe and will not put anyone at risk of being injured when they use them. If they fail in this duty, they could have to face Trading Standards Officers, who may well prosecute them. They could also have to deal with a personal injury claim if the victim enlists the help of our accident lawyer in Charnwood. 

    Why recalls are made

    We all know that sometimes things can go wrong when something is being made, but whatever the product is, the processes of its manufacture should be monitored for safety. If a problem is found, and some of the items have already been sold, most manufacturers would order a recall of the product. This can involve it having a repair to correct the problem, or being replaced. 

    Recalls can cost manufacturers millions of pounds, particularly if the item is something as large as a car. But they cannot take the risk of some being injured and making a claim against them. This is not just because of the compensation they would have to pay out, but because the bad publicity surrounding personal injury claims could severely damage their image, and their sales. 

    An example of this is a carmaker that recently found a problem with the braking system on one of their models. They immediately stopped all sales of the car, and advised anyone who owned one not to drive it. Because they cared enough to take these steps, they have limited the amount of damage to their reputation, and possibly saved several innocent victims from being injured in an accident that was not their own fault.
