If you’ve been injured by a product you bought and have designs on taking action against its manufacturer in an effort to win compensation, a firm of injury lawyers in Sandyhills will typically only stand a chance of securing you a pay-out if you have followed the manufacturer’s instruction on how to use the item in question. If you’ve used the item that hurt you in a manner it was not supposed to be used in, any personal injury case you were to launch may be fairly weak.
It’s about common sense really. Using a hairdryer while in the bath will not be a good idea. Taking a computer apart while it’s still on a plugged into the mains will be likely to end in tears. Rooting around a toaster with a metal implement could give you an electric shock. If you use an item in a way not recommended by its maker, you should not be surprised if you end up with an injury, and you should not be surprised if you contact injury lawyers in Sandyhills and find you can’t make a personal injury compensation claim.
If you’re unsure as to whether your behaviour might have contributed to the severity of your injuries but feel as though a fault with your product was the main cause of you being hurt, you should take some advice. If some blame can be apportioned to you but your item was defective, you still may be able to take action, but you might receive a reduced payment. This is a legal tort known as contributory negligence.
Your best bet will be to call a firm of injury lawyers in Sandyhills or one of our experts to get some advice if you’ve found yourself in this position.
