    Faulty product claims in Copeland

    If you use a mobile phone, laptop or digital camera, you may need to use a charger on a regular basis. Whilst some phone batteries do last longer, many people find that they need to charge their mobile phones on a daily basis. Fortunately, when you buy an electrical unit, it will often come with the appropriate charger. However, the charger supplied doesn’t always last as long as the unit so you may need to replace it at some point.

    If you do find that you need to purchase a new charger, it’s always advisable to purchase one from the original supplier and to purchase a genuine model. Whilst it may be possible to find a cheaper charger to fit generic units, these aren’t always as safe. In some cases, there are reports of universal chargers causing fires or causing people to suffer burns so it’s important to ensure that whichever charger you choose to purchase is safe.

    Unfortunately, however, purchasing a charger or unit from a reputable supplier doesn’t always guarantee their safety. Even the most high profile companies could potentially supply a dangerous product. If you notice that your charger or unit is becoming particularly hot or that it is marking the power socket, it’s important to replace it or to get it checked immediately. If it was to explode or cause a fire, it could result in people suffering very serious injuries or even being killed so it’s best not to take the chance of using an unsafe charger.

    Claim against the manufacturers of a faulty product

    If you have been hurt in this way, you may be keen to make a personal injury compensation claim against the manufacturers of the unit. If the charger or unit is shown to be faulty, or if the company have breached the relevant health and safety rules, they could face very serious sanctions and you may be awarded compensation.

    Although the item may need to be inspected to determine exactly what caused it to malfunction, once this has been carried out, it shouldn’t be difficult to make a personal injury compensation claim.
