Faulty Goods Claim
Retailers and manufacturers sometimes like to hide behind the ‘buyer beware’ defence when it comes to their relationship with customers and consumers. What this often means is that consumers can be suckered into being a little reticent when it comes to seeking compensation from manufacturers and retailers who have let their customers down.
This is wrong and is especially wrong when it comes to companies who have sold faulty goods that put their customers in danger, as all manufacturers and retailers have a responsibility to their customers to do everything which they can to safeguard their safety.
Have you been Injured by Faulty Goods?
If you have suffered an illness or injury due to goods or products which were faulty when you purchased them, then this is not your fault and the company who sold these goods are liable in the eyes of the law and you are entitled to start faulty goods claim proceedings.
Injuries and illnesses are often not only stressful and physically debilitating, but can also cause a great deal of financial hardship due to factors like medical bills or loss of earnings. As such the effect of faulty goods can be profound and long lasting and potentially years of struggle could be thrust upon you through no fault of your own.
What Should you do?
First and foremost, you must make sure that you get yourself treated by a doctor in order to get your injury or condition under control and relief of any pain or other symptoms. Getting your condition treated also produces documentary evidence of the exact injury caused by any faulty product which can be a key tenet of any future faulty goods claim.
Once you have done this then you need to contact Accident Advice Helpline who will begin to guide you through the next steps to take.
