Injury solicitors in Gomersal and defective products
There are rules and regulations that apply to supplying goods to consumers, the main one being that the product must be safe to use. Some specific products have extra rules because they present more danger than others. However, there are general rules that apply to any product you buy:
- Consumers should be warned of any potential risk, each individual product should be marked to inform consumers
- The information provided as a warning should be easily understandable to the consumer so that no misunderstandings can happen
- The safety of products should be constantly monitored
- If a safety issue arises it should be acted upon straight away
The main responsibility for this lies with the manufacturer or importer. If they do not comply and someone is injured because of their negligence, they may have to face injury solicitors in Gomersal with a personal injury claim made by a victim that has been harmed by their produce.
Injury solicitors in Gomersal advise that the best way is not to tamper
Manufacturers, producers and importers can only be held responsible for the faulty goods that caused you harm if they have not been tampered with in any way. The goods should be in their original condition if you want to make a personal injury claim. The goods do not have to be new, car recalls being a typical example of faulty products that are recalled sometimes years later.
Retails can only be held accountable if they knew they were selling an unsafe product.
Trading Standards Officers
The goods that have caused your injury should be reported to the Trading Standards Officers to ensure that something is done to stop other people being injured in the same way. They have the powers to:
- Seize goods for testing
- Immediately stop further sales of the goods
- Demand a recall of the items
- Get permission from the courts for the goods to be destroyed
- Prosecute the guilty party which could mean heavy fines or imprisonment
