    Defect claim


    It can be very frustrating to return home with a new hairdryer only to find it catches fire the first time you use it. Not only frustrating but very dangerous! This is just one example of how a defective product can lead to a defect claim. If you are injured as a result of a faulty product then you have a right to claim personal injury compensation.

    Defective workmanship

    Despite all the online checking sites, it’s till possible to fall victim to a rogue tradesman. Have you been unfortunate enough to engage someone to do building work or renovations on your property and it’s all gone horribly wrong? Have you been hurt or injured as a result? In these circumstances you may also be able to make a defect claim for compensation for your injuries.

    If you’ve fallen through a floor or had newly installed patio doors collapse on top of you then your injuries might be serious.
