With so many rules and regulations designed to keep us all safe, it is surprising that so many people are still injured, through no fault of their own, by faulty products. Although we have certainly seen a fall in the number of people being injured by faulty products in recent years, it is still a problem that can have serious implications for the people it affects, which is why personal injury compensation is made available for those who are affected.
If an item you have purchased in the United Kingdom causes you an injury due to the fact that it was in some way faulty, there is every chance that you should be able to successfully claim compensation. In order to do this successfully, there are a number of things that you will need to do. Read on to find out how to claim for injuries caused by faulty products.
Immediately after injury
In the aftermath of your injury, there are things that you can do to help boost any personal injury claim you might make.
Of course, the first thing that you will want to do is seek medical attention, especially if you have sustained a serious or worrying injury.
Once your injury is sorted out, you should take as many photographs of the product that caused your injury as possible. It is also useful to take photos of any instructions, packaging, etc., that came with the product at time of purchase.
If you still have the receipt, be sure to either hold on to it or take a photo of it, so that you can prove you did in fact purchase the item.
