In the unfortunate event that you are injured by a faulty product due to the negligence of another party such as a manufacturer or retailer, there is a good chance that you could be entitled to personal injury compensation.
In order to claim personal injury compensation, you must have been injured in an accident that was not your fault, and that accident must have occurred no more than three years before the day that you make your claim.
In most cases, you will also need to be able to provide medical proof of your injuries, so seeing a doctor is a must. It is also a good idea to take pictures of your injuries and the faulty product that caused them, as the more evidence you can provide the better.
Who can help you claim for faulty product injuries?
Who can help you claim for faulty product injuries? That is a question you are probably asking yourself after sustaining an injury due to a faulty product. Luckily, the answer is a simple one – personal injury lawyers.
Personal injury lawyers, like those at Accident Advice Helpline, are individuals who have undergone extensive training in the law, and who have decided to specialise in personal injury claims. As such, they are in the best possible position to help you make a claim.
Why you need personal injury lawyers
Personal injury lawyers are so important to a personal injury claim, not only because they have extensive experience in dealing with all manner of injury claims including faulty product claims, but also because they can guide you through the process and take on the bulk of the work involved in making a claim, so that you can sit back relax and recover from your injuries.
In fact, most personal injury lawyers will be able to handle your case whilst only occasionally speaking to you on the phone, so you will not have to travel to their offices, nor in most cases, will you be required to go to court, as personal injury lawyers are experts at settling out of court.
Studies have even shown that those people who hire a personal injury lawyer are more likely to be awarded a settlement, and their settlements tend to be much higher than injured people who do not seek their help.
