Faulty products can cause personal injury, which means that you can make a claim if you have an accident that is caused by a malfunctioning item that you have been using.
It doesn’t matter if it’s an old or new product – if it didn’t do what it should have done when you were using it, and this is because of a fault, then solicitors in Caithness want to hear from you!
Faulty product injuries
Most of the time, you buy a product from a shop and it will do its job properly for a reasonable length of time. Months or even years may pass uneventfully as you use it, and it will eventually break down because of wear and tear.
Sometimes, unfortunately, a product will cause you injury when you use it. Perhaps it is a tool with a loose mechanism that wounds you. Maybe it is an electrical fault that causes you to get a shock. There are many types of product, and therefore, many kinds of injury that could occur.
Why can you claim through solicitors in Caithness?
The reason you can claim is that manufacturers and retailers have a duty to make sure that their products are fit for purpose. If they’re not fit for purpose, and cause you injury, you can make a claim.
You can do this by calling Accident Advice Helpline, a law firm that has a team of 100% no win no fee solicitors in Caithness available to take on your case.
They will fight on your behalf for compensation, and if you win, you will be paid a sum of money that will help you to get your life back on track.
A faulty product injury can cause a lot of problems
Obviously, there is some medical help needed when you get injured. But there are also financial implications from personal injury.
You may need to take time off work to recover, which means that you may end up losing money. Your sick pay may run out quickly, and it may be less than your normal wage after a few weeks.
On top of that, you may be spending money on things that you ordinarily wouldn’t need. These may be things such as home helps, taxis, and prescriptions – in fact, a whole range of extras whose combined cost soon mounts up.
For this reason, it is a good idea to keep records of your medical treatment and as many receipts as possible for the expenses you are incurring. Solicitors in Caithness will find this information very useful!
