    Accidents can be caused in all kinds of circumstances. One such situation is an accident caused by a defective or malfunctioning product that you have purchased. There are a number of national and international laws and regulation that govern the sale of products to the public, but the overriding principle is that manufacturers and sellers must ensure that products are safe.

    All products sold to the public should have gone through rigorous testing to ensure the product holds up in all reasonable applications. This research and development should happen will in advance of the product ever shipping for sale, but should also continue while the product is on the market.

    Products that carry an inherent risk, such as those containing elements like kettles or toasters, should also carry easy-to-read warnings and instructions for use. Those products that have small parts should also carry warnings to avoid children or babies using them.

    What if you were injured?

    If you were injured due to using a faulty product, government legislation entitles you to make a claim. If the accident happened within the last three years and you’ve seen a medical professional for your injuries, it’s likely you could have a claim.

    So long as you used the item for its intended purpose and in the way that you were instructed by the manufacturer’s recommendations, the responsibility for the accident lies elsewhere. That responsibility can be applied not only to the manufacturer, but also the export/importer and also the retailer who sold you the product.

    It can be complicated to prove responsibility in cases like these. For instance, in order to claim against the retailer, you would either have to prove that they knew about the defect, or that their inspection practices for their supplies didn’t meet legislative standards.

    How to claim

    That’s why it’s important to make sure that you get specialist legal advice before you make your claim. At Accident Advice Helpline, we can put you in touch with Glasgow City no win no fee* lawyers who specialise in this area. That means you’ll get top class representation at no upfront cost.
