One of the areas that is quite often overlooked for personal injury claims is when someone is injured through a defective product, but this entitles you just as much to make a personal injury claim as if you were knocked off your bike by a car, or any other accident.
Some examples of defective product accidents and injuries that may result in an injury claim:
- Road traffic accidents caused by defective parts such as steering or brakes
- Faulty electrical goods in the home or garden can cause very nasty accidents
- Tongs, dryers, straighteners or bleaches and bleaching equipment can cause damage to the hair and scalp at the hairdressers
- Children can be hurt by playing with defective toys
- Breast implants, other cosmetic implants, replacement hip joint or any other faulty medical device can cause injury
Businesses need to avoid an injury claim in St Paul’s
Any supplier of products to consumers has to make sure those products are safe. The biggest responsibility falls on the manufacturers, producers and importers of the products, but wholesalers and shops also have legal obligations.
If any business fails to meet these responsibilities the consequences can be very serious. They can be fined, or even imprisoned, as well as being sued for compensation in an injury claim.
In the UK, suppliers of any goods to the consumer, have to ensure they are safe or they may face an injury claim. They must:
- Warn consumers about any potential risks
- Provide the consumers with information to help them understand the risks
- Monitor the safety of their products
- Take action if any product is found to be unsafe.
Defective products should be reported to the Trading Standards officers in your local authority. They are responsible for most safety enforcement and would certainly be involved if the injury caused by the faulty goods was serious, or happening to several people.
