Faulty product injuries
In the vast majority of cases products, regardless of the type or how expensive they are, have gone through a rigorous testing procedure before they are eligible to be sold to the general public. Most of the time this testing process eliminates any issues with the product and ensures that it is safe for general use and consumption; however, occasionally, something goes wrong and a product that is in some way defective gets sold on. If you have purchased a defective or faulty product, and have been injured or made ill as a result of such a purchase, you may be eligible to make a compensation claim Stockton.
Examples of faulty products
An example of a faulty product could be that you purchased a chair from a store, and the first time you use it at home it collapses under your weight and you are injured as you fall to the ground.
Perhaps you are making dinner and as you take your saucepan off the hob the handle breaks, meaning you spill boiling hot water all over the floor, and scald yourself in the process.
Faulty products can also refer to food and other consumables rather than simple household products. For example, sometimes food are sold which are not safe for human consumption, as in the case of food poisoning. Alternatively, food can be mislabelled, not highlighting the fact that nuts are present when in fact they are, causing an allergic reaction to sufferers.
All these things can and should be avoided, and if you have been injured or made poorly as a result of someone elses’ negligence or failure to adhere to their duty of case you could make a compensation claim Stockton.
