    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Injury solicitor in Northumberland


    Have you been injured as a result of a defective product? The European Union has legislation in place that guarantees that the consumers of products and services have a right to compensation if an injury occurs as a result of a faulty product or appliance. To successfully claim compensation you will need the help of a local injury solicitor in Northumberland or national firm Accident Advice Helpline.

    Claiming with an injury solicitor in Northumberland or Accident Advice Helpline

    Your first thought may be to contact a local injury solicitor in Northumberland, that you know and are familiar with, to help with your claim. This is not your only option, however.

    Accident Advice Helpline will be able to assist you to claim compensation if you have been injured as a result of a defective product. Our solicitors specialise in a specific type of injury and deal with defective product cases. They have successfully sued manufacturers and retailers on behalf of consumers who have been injured. Our injury solicitors will also be able to assist you to get compensation.

    Successful cases of compensation for defective products

    Accident Advice Helpline’s solicitors have successfully won cases on a number of different claims and these include:

    • Illnesses caused by defective supply of water
    • Injuries to children due to playing with defective toys
    • Injuries caused by defective equipment or appliances
    • Cases involving injuries to the scalp or hair as a result of bad practice in hairdressing salons
    • Injuries that are caused by exploding cylinders and bottles
    • Medical conditions and injuries arising from medicinal products that are unsafe

    These are some of the defective product cases that people have managed to get compensation for, however there are many other cases that you would be able to get compensation for. If you feel that you might be entitled to compensation then contact a personal injury solicitor who will be able to advise you on whether or not you can make a claim.

    Claiming compensation for your defective product injury

    If you think that you might have a case for claiming compensation for an injury that has happened as a result of a defective product, give Accident Advice Helpline a call on 0800 689 0500 or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile phone or complete the application form that can be found on the website.

    If you complete the application form and the adviser will give you a call back at a time that is convenient for you and they will ask you a range of questions to determine what actually happened. When you first contact Accident Advice Helpline, the professional adviser will ask you a range of questions in order to determine the best way to proceed with your case. Once the adviser has gained a clear understanding of what has happened they will then appoint the most appropriate solicitor. Once the appropriate solicitor has been appointed they will make contact with you and discuss the process of the case.

    The appointed solicitor will deal with the case including all of the paperwork and this will leave you free to concentrate on recovering from your injury. At no point will the solicitor ask you to pay any money upfront because their fees will be deducted from the amount of compensation that you are awarded if your compensation case is successful.
