You could be within your rights to make an injury claim in Chorley if you were using the product as instructed, and it has caused you an injury.

What sort of products qualify?
You can make an injury claim in Chorley after being injured using a household electrical appliance, cosmetics or electrical hair tools, children’s toys, furniture, chemical products such as hair dye or cleaning goods and more.

How much will I receive in compensation?
The amount you could receive will depend on things such as the extent of the injury, if you have had to pay out any money in medical costs, if you have lost money because you have had to take time off work, and other factors.
