Making an injury claim in Shipley
Have you bought defective goods that resulted in you or a member of your family suffering an injury? Well if you have, you could have an injury claim in Shipley on your hands. If you’ve bought a product that has ended up injuring you, whether you got it online, in a store, from a private individual or from a market stall, you may be able to make a claim for compensation. If you suffered a particularly unpleasant injury, you may be able to win thousands of pounds. Why should you be made to suffer due to the shabby workmanship or negligence of a company that has sold you an item that’s defective?
What you can claim for
At the end of the day, if you’ve bought an item that’s harmed you or somebody else in your house, you could make a claim for injury compensation. You could claim for a smartphone that’s given you an electric shock, a child’s toy that has cut your kid or an item of furniture that’s collapsed due to a defect. At the larger end of the scale, you could sue a car manufacturer if you were to become involved in an accident due to a defect with your vehicle. This is why car makers go to great lengths to recall their vehicles once a defect has been found with a range. Whilst expensive, doing so is a hell of a lot cheaper that shelling out compensation to multiple injured customers.
Save evidence for your injury claim in Shipley
It’s vitally important that you hold onto any documentation relating to your purchase if you want to launch an injury claim case for a defective product. You’ll need to keep the receipt and preferably any packaging that came with it. You should also hold onto the item itself, keeping it in a safe place if it still poses a danger. All of this evidence will be vital. You should also have medical evidence of the injuries you or your family member suffered.
As such, it’s important that you visit a doctor or hospital after sustaining an injury from a defective product. Any pictures you can take of your injuries might also be useful. Once you’ve got all of this stuff together, you’ll be in a position to contact a personal injury law firm to find out if you could be represented on a no win-no fee basis.
