You may have need of an accident solicitor Hinxworth – based because of a personal injury caused by a faulty product. The injury may have occurred at the shop when you were considering buying the product, or it could have happened when you got it home.
Suppose you picked up a glass bottle in a shop or supermarket and it immediately shattered in your hand, then you should immediately report the accident to a member of staff and have the accident logged in the accident book. You should also take the names of witnesses and their contact numbers and seek immediate medical treatment, if necessary in the Accident and Emergency department of your local hospital. Take photos of the scene too with your mobile phone, or have someone else do this for you. If you have bought the product and taken it home, keep the receipt for it.

Another example of a faulty product is a chair you purchased which collapsed under your weight shortly after you purchased it and this could have resulted in a back injury or any other injury which you could claim compensation for.
In faulty product compensation cases you can claim compensation either from the manufacturer or the shop that sold you the product, depending on the circumstances of the accident. Your accident solicitor in Hinxworth will advise you about this.
