    Working with an injury lawyer in Purley

    Manufacturers, importers, distributors, producers, wholesalers and shops all have legal responsibilities to make sure the products they sell to consumers are safe and will not cause harm or injury. If you are injured because of a defective product you may be entitled to make a compensation claim and to use an injury lawyer in Purley.

    How the responsible party should avoid having to face an injury lawyer in Purley

    The main onus falls on manufacturers, importers and producers to ensure that any goods sold to consumers are safe.  They should:

    • Warn consumers about any potential risks
    • Provide clear information to help consumers understand the risks
    • Monitor the safety of products
    • Take action if safety problems are found

    Failure to do so, resulting in accidents, may mean you can be entitled to make a compensation claim and to use an injury lawyer in Purley. These rules apply to all types of goods through from small and large, there are no exceptions. 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.

    Retailers are not quite so liable

    Retailers are not normally responsible for harm to consumers or their property unless they knowingly sold an unsafe product and providing they identify the producer. Shops in particular need to keep a close eye on high-risk goods such as food, toys, fireworks and medicines.

    Any goods that are found to be defective should be reported to your Trading Standards Officer in the local council. They are responsible for safety enforcement and have the power to:
