Have you been hurt by furniture?
Whilst many people opt to stay in the same property for many years, they often re-decorate relatively frequently. In addition to repainting the walls or hanging new wallpaper, this can involve purchasing new furniture.
Although some pieces of furniture arrive ready-made in one piece, some items may need to be put together. Unfortunately, this can prove to be more complicated than you might expect and it may take more than one person to complete the job.
Whilst the manufacturer won’t necessarily be responsible for any errors you make or accidents that you’re responsible for, if there is a fault or a defect in the item and it causes an injury, you may find that the manufacturers are held to be responsible.
If, for example, you purchase bunk beds with a plan to install them in a child’s room, it’s vital to ensure that they are safe before the children are allowed to use them. If a design or manufacturing fault means that they are unstable or wobbly, you may want to contact the manufacturer and ask for a replacement or a refund before someone is injured.
However, if there was no indication of a fault or defect, you may not be aware of it until someone is hurt. In such an instance, an objective examination of the furniture may be enough to show what caused the injury. If the manufacturer is shown to be responsible, it’s perfectly possible that injury solicitors in Unst will be able to help you to make a claim for compensation.
