Have you been injured whilst using hair straighteners?
Every day, thousands of people across the United Kingdom use hairdryers, straighteners, curlers and other heated styling equipment. Now that these items are available for home use, the potential for accidents and injuries has increased.
Whilst you may suffer minor burns whilst you’re getting used to a new product, you could suffer serious injures if an item was to malfunction in some way. For example, every product should have an in-built maximum temperature which should protect you from injury. However, if this fails to work, the item could get far too hot and you could be injured as a result.
Similarly, if the in-built shut off feature doesn’t work, the item could be inadvertently left on. In extreme cases, this could cause damage to your house and could even result in a fire breaking out.
Could you contact a personal injury lawyer in Leintwardine?
If you’ve been hurt or injured as a result of a defective electrical item, you should definitely consider taking legal action. If the product is assessed and examined by an expert, they will be able to determine whether or not it was fault and, if it was, the manufacturer could be held liable for any injuries you sustained.
Remember – it may not only be your item which was faulty. If a batch has been incorrectly manufactured, other people could be at risk of getting hurt as well. By making a claim, you could alert people to the dangers and encourage the company to issue a product recall.
Of course, before you commit to making a claim with a personal injury lawyer in Leintwardine, you may want to find out more about what the claims process involves. If so, we can help.
