Unless you work with toxic chemicals, you may assume that you aren’t exposed to any dangerous substances at all. Although most people are aware that cleaning products do contain some strong chemicals, often people don’t realise just how harmful these can be.
As these types of products can cause serious injuries, the packaging often contains several warnings. You might be advised to store the product out of reach of children, for example, or to keep the product away from heat or sunlight.
Although household cleaning products don’t contain as many harmful chemicals as industrial strength cleaners, they can still prove to be dangerous and could still result in making faulty product claims in East Lindsey. Fortunately, most manufacturers are required to list the ingredients in these types of products, so if you do have an allergy or intolerance then you may be able to avoid the chemical which is likely to bring on an allergic reaction.
However, your ability to avoid irritants depends on the accuracy of the manufacturers when it comes to listing the ingredients. If the wrong ingredients are used, or the ingredients are used in the wrong quantities, the product could be far more dangerous than it is intended to be, and you could suffer from allergies, breathing and respiratory problems, or even chemical burns as a result of normal use.
If you’ve been hurt or experienced a injury because of a faulty product, the manufacturers could be held liable for the injuries or illnesses you’ve sustained as a result. As there are very strict guidelines regarding the manufacturing of such products, the manufacturers themselves could face very severe sanctions.
Once you’ve begun to recover from your injuries, you may want to find out more about making a claim for compensation. Providing you can show that the product caused your injuries, it’s likely that you will be considered eligible to make faulty product claims in East Lindsey against the product manufacturers.
Of course, making a compensation claim isn’t always easy, so you will probably want to access help from a specialist personal injury solicitor or personal injury law firm.
