    Anyone that supplies goods to consumers in the UK has a legal duty to ensure the products are safe.  Faulty products can cause injuries, sometimes serious and occasionally fatal.   It is exactly why you so often see recalls on cars, because the manufacturer realises that there is a potential safety issue, and they need to correct it before it becomes a much bigger issue when perhaps someone loses their life.

    Having to recall and correct thousands of cars can cost the manufacturer millions of pounds, but nothing compared to how much it could cost if they should be faced with many personal injury claims because of the defect.

    Injury experts in Radlett want them to comply with the regulations

    The same applies to all manufacturers, producers and importers that supply goods to UK consumers.  There are rules and regulations, which they should all comply with if there may be a problem:

    • Consumers should be warned of any potential risk
    • The information provided as a warning should be easily understandable by the consumer
    • The safety of products should be constantly monitored
    • If a safety issue arises it should be acted upon straight away

    These regulations apply to all goods, no matter how small or large they are.  If you purchase, or are gifted, a faulty product that causes you harm, you should contact the injury experts in Radlett at Accident Advice Helpline to discuss making a personal injury compensation claim.

    The reduced responsibilities of retailers

    Retailers and wholesalers are not normally blamed for faulty products and usually have no responsibility towards the consumer or the consumer’s property.  However, if they sell a product knowing it is unsafe, they will be held accountable.  Retailers need to take extra care with high risk products such as food, toys, fireworks and medicines.

    To prevent other people suffering the same fate, you should report your faulty goods

    To prevent other people suffering the same fate, you should report your faulty goods to the Trading Standards Officers.  They have the powers to:

    • Seize goods for testing
    • Immediately stop further sales of the goods
    • Demand a recall of the items
    • Get permission from the courts for the goods to be destroyed
    • Prosecute the guilty part which could mean heavy fines or imprisonment
