Imagine you were at home putting a piece of toaster into the toaster in Hampshire. In an ideal situation, your toast would pop out and you’d butter it and be on your way. If the toaster was faulty however, you might be injured or even have your whole house burn down. Is a situation like this your fault? Or the fault of the toaster? Or perhaps it is the fault of the manufacturer, in which case, you can make an injury claim in Hartley Wintney.
Product should be tested to standard
Manufacturers of any type of product owe their customers the courtesy of ensuring that their products work and that they have been tested for quality purposes. This means that the product you buy, should not be faulty and should work correctly. Over the years, some products do get old and stop working, but if they injure you, that is the fault of the manufacturer, and anyone from Accident Advice Helpline will tell you that you may have a claim.
What injury claim in Hartley Wintney do you have?
If you have been injured in an accident through a faulty product at your Hartley Wintney home, it may not be your fault. Of course if you were tampering with the device, you may not have a claim, but if it malfunctions and hurts you, the onus is on the maker.
- Electrical burns – Modern convenience has made living easier, but sadly, has also made it more dangerous. Anyone who has been in a position where they were electrocuted or burned by a device that malfunctioned may be able to make their injury claim in Hartley Wintney.
- Cuts or breaks – Have you ever thought about what might happen if an object in your home stopped working and you were injured as a result? If a large cabinet fell over onto you for example, because it was badly manufactured, and you were injured, the fault certainly does not lie with you.
- Permanent injury – Though no one likes to think about it, a permanent injury could occur from an item malfunctioning. If you were in your brand new car and the brakes failed, you might be injured for the long term.
Hartley Wintney claim
In all of the cases mentioned and all of the cases the Accident Advice Helpline has dealt with, an injury claim in Hartley Wintney was laid against a manufacturer by a Hampshire resident in this picturesque village who sold a faulty product because someone was injured. What people often fail to realise though is that when this happens, they are being robbed of their trust in the manufacturer too.
When you buy an item, you expect it to work and if it malfunctions, you may have a claim. You can always check whether you claim is valid by calling 0800 689 0500 and asking for help from the experts you can trust.
