Anyone who supplies goods to consumers has a legal responsibility to ensure their products are safe. If there should be risks involved with any product they must:
- Warn consumers about the potential risks with any product
- Make sure the information provided about the risks is easily understandable by the consumer
- Continually monitor the safety of their products
- Take action if a safety issue is found
They need to keep a close eye on their products because if one causes harm to someone, they may have to face an injury claim from someone using injury lawyers in Port Erin.
Injury lawyers will find the guilty party
The company who has the most responsibility and therefore, the guilty party, is normally the manufacturer, the producer or the importer of the goods. Retailers do not have the same duty unless they knowingly sell an unsafe product.
Whichever one of these turns out to be responsible, if you are harmed because of faulty goods, you may be able to use injury lawyers in Port Erin to make a personal injury compensation claim.
Don’t interfere with the goods
If the goods have been tampered with, or interfered with, in any way, injury lawyers would probably not be able to make a personal injury claim for you.
Trading Standards Officers
If you have purchased faulty goods, so might have many more consumers. They might be at risk from the same problem you have experienced and for this reason you should report it to your local Trading Standards Officer. They have the power to seize goods to check them for safety and if they find them to be a risk they can:
- Stop the sale of the goods
- Order the recall of any goods already sold
- Ask the courts for permission to destroy all the goods
- Prosecute the guilty party
