If you have been injured because of a defective product then you will be able to claim compensation. When a product has been sold it must be safe for the intended purpose. The Consumer Protection Act 1987 states that if a product causes personal injury when it was used in the appropriate manner then the victim has a legal right to compensation from the manufacturer or in some cases the retailer. People are able to claim compensation even if they did not personally purchase the faulty product. Our accident solicitor in North Kessock will be able to assist with your claim.
