If you have been injured by a faulty product you could be entitled to pursue a faulty product claim. A manufacturer or trader has a duty to ensure their products do not endanger safety, even when the guarantee has expired.
Claim faulty product compensation
Product liability means that, depending on the circumstances, the manufacturer or retailer is liable for any damage caused by one of their products. Most successful faulty product claims are made in cases where the injury was not the fault of the injured party. A company does not cease to be responsible for its faulty products once those products have been sold. Consumers have the right to make claims even when faulty products are of an advanced age, although they must not have been tampered with.
Product liability compensation
The first thing to do after any accident is to see a doctor. This will mean that the problem can be diagnosed, treatment started and any medicine prescribed. It’ll also help your faulty product claim by providing documentary evidence of your injury. Any medical costs you incur will be covered by the compensation you receive.
