An injury claim in Rhuddlan may be needed if faulty goods have injured you
The main responsibility in making sure that products sold to consumers are safe falls on manufacturers, importers and producers. They should:
- Warn consumers about any potential risks;
- Provide information to help consumers understand the risks;
- Monitor the safety of products; and
- Take action if safety problems are found.
If they do not comply, and you are injured as a result, then you may be able to make an injury claim in Rhuddlan for personal injury compensation.
The rules for safety apply to all goods and any dangerous product could mean you are able to make an injury claim in Rhuddlan
The rules apply to all types of goods, from small household electrical items through to cars, lorries and even houses. If an electrical fault in your new house caused a fire and you were injured, you would be able to make an injury claim in Rhuddlan. You do not have to have bought the product yourself and it does not have to be new — as long as it has not been tampered with and it is that tampering that made it unsafe.
It is not always the end supplier that is at fault
It is not normally the concern at the end of the supply chain, such as retailers, that is at fault. They usually have no liability for consumers’ injuries or property unless they knowingly sold an unsafe product. They do need to be more aware when it comes to high risk goods such as toys, food medicines and fireworks, though.
Trading Standards Officers
Any goods that are found to be faulty should be reported to your Trading Standards Officer at the local council. They are responsible for safety enforcement rules and regulations, and have the power to:
- Stop sales of the defective products;
- Demand the recall of all faulty goods sold;
- Get permission from the courts to destroy the goods; and
- Prosecute the guilty party, which can mean heavy fines or imprisonment.
