    Injury claim in Lynton


    Faulty products can cause an injury and lead to an injury claim in Lynton

    If you have bought or received faulty or damaged goods that have caused you harm, you may be entitled to make an injury claim in Lynton for financial compensation.

    Those who are responsible for the unsafe products

    The main responsibility for making sure that any products sold to consumers are safe lies with:

    • Manufacturers;
    • Producers; and
    • Importers.

    Usually, wholesalers and retailers have no responsibility for harm to the consumer or the consumer’s property, unless they knowingly sell an unsafe product. If you have had an accident because of defective goods, you may be able to make an injury claim in Lynton.

    What the responsible party should do

    By law, products sold to consumers must be safe. Those that make or import the goods should:

    • Warn customers about potential risks;
    • Ensure the information provided can be understood by the consumers;
    • Continually monitor the safety of their products;
    • Take immediate action if a safety problem is found; and
    • Notify the Trading Standards Office if they become aware that a product they have placed on the market poses a risk to consumers.

    If the manufacturer of a product does not follow the rules, you may be able to make an injury claim in Lynton.

    Possible outcomes for those responsible

    If unsafe products (which you don’t have to have purchased yourself) harm you, you are entitled to sue for damages and make an injury claim in Lynton. This claim could cover:

    • Pain and suffering;
    • Anxiety and stress;
    • Loss of earnings, past and future;
    • Care costs;
    • Extra medical costs; and
    • Any cost or loss that is because of the accident.

    Apart from being sued by the consumer, they can face heavy fines and even imprisonment.

    The powers of Trading Standards

    Trading Standards officers can buy or seize goods to check they are safe. They can enter premises unannounced to ensure that regulations are being followed. If they think any products are unsafe, they can:

    • Immediately stop the sale of the goods;
    • Demand a recall of the unsafe goods;
    • Ask the courts for permission to have the goods destroyed; and
    • Prosecute the supplier.
