Injury Solicitors Drymen on defective products
Drymen is a village in Scotland. Despite the growth in the numbers of villagers commuting to Glasgow to work, there remains an agricultural tradition in the area. Every year, in early summer, an agricultural show is held in the fields around the Endrick Water.
Unfortunately, the residents of Scotland are not immune to accidents. Just like the rest of us they will sometimes be the faultless victims of an accident in which they sustain injuries that need medical attention. In this situation they may be entitled to make a personal injury claim and should contact injury solicitors in Drymen for assistance.
Faulty goods could be the reason you call injury solicitors Drymen
Manufacturers, producers and importers all have a responsibility to ensure the goods they supply to consumers are safe. If they do not and someone is harmed, the injured party may be entitled to use injury solicitors in Drymen to make a personal injury claim.
To try and reduce the risk of this happening they should:
- Clearly warn consumers about any risks attached to their products.
- Make sure the information regarding the risks is easily understandable to the consumer.
- Continually monitor the safety of their products.
- Take immediate action if a safety problem is found.
- Notify Trading Standards as soon as they realise a product they have put on the market is unsafe to consumers.
If consumers are harmed because of a product they have put on the market, the consequences for them can be dire. Retailers do not have the same level of responsibility, but should not knowingly sell a product that is unsafe.
You should inform Trading Standards Officers
Trading Standards officers are responsible for the safety issues relating to the consumer. They have the power to buy or seize goods and take them away for safety testing. They make unannounced visits and this means no one gets any warning about their investigation. Once they have found an unsafe product, they have the power to:
- Immediately stop all sales of the faulty products.
- Insist on a recall of the faulty products.
- Ask the courts for permission to destroy all the faulty goods.
- Prosecute the guilty party.
Prosecution can result in heavy fines being imposed and occasionally a custodial sentence has to be served.
