When you purchase goods from a retailer or a manufacturer you enter into a relationship of trust, whereby, the seller trusts that you will pay in full for the goods and you, as the consumer trusts that the goods are fit for purpose and safe to be used. The retailer or manufacturer therefore, has a legal and moral responsibility to ensure that the goods are not faulty and that they will not endanger the safety of the consumer. If this responsibility is shirked and you, as a consumer, are injured due to faulty goods the law states that you can place a goods at fault claim, to claim compensation for the physical, emotional and financial costs caused by your injury.
If Goods You Bought Had a Fault, Claim Today
If you are in a situation where you bought goods that had a fault, claim today to get the compensation which you deserve. You may find that the financial implications of an injury caused by either the carelessness or callousness of a retailer or manufacturer are crippling, but a goods at fault claim for compensation can help you to survive financially whilst you recover physically.
What if The Injury Was a While Ago?
The law states that you can claim for compensation in the case of an illness or injury caused by faulty goods within three years of the incident and after which time you can no longer seek the compensation which you may be owed. The only instances when this time limit is not enacted are those where the goods at fault claim involves a minor or in cases of industrial diseases, but these are rarely applicable in terms of faulty goods claims.
