If someone were to come up to you on the street and injure you or cause you pain, you would want and deserve a degree of recompense. The situation is exactly the same if a company sells you faulty goods that cause injury or illness — just because they are a seemingly faceless organisation doesn’t make them any less liable for the suffering that they have caused you. In fact, manufacturers and retailers who serve the public actually have a legal obligation and responsibility to the safety of consumers who buy their products. Claiming for faulty goods is the way in which you, as a wronged consumer, can seek the compensation that you deserve for any injury you suffer that wasn’t your fault.
When is claiming for faulty goods possible?
If you suffer an injury that was caused by a product or goods which you have purchased that were faulty or not fit for purpose, you have the option of claiming for faulty goods against the manufacturer or retailer who sold the product or products.
How to proceed
Before doing anything else, it is vital for you to get your injury or illness treated by a doctor in order to make sure that your symptoms do not worsen and that you don’t take any further risks with your health. It is also important to get your injury assessed and treated by a professional to get the expert opinion and documentary evidence to prove the extent of your injuries for use during your claim proceedings.
