Any one of us could be the blameless victim of an accident in which we sustain injuries that need medical attention. If that happened to you sometime in the last three years, you could be entitled to compensation. Sometimes, injuries are caused by a defect on an item we have purchased, in which case you might like to discuss making a personal injury claim with a Llantrisant law firm.
A Llantrisant law firm can help you with a defective product claim
Makers and importers in the UK have a legal duty to ensure the goods they supply to consumers are safe. If they do not, and someone is harmed as a result, the injured party are entitled to use a Llantrisant law firm to make a personal injury claim for compensation.
The injuries sustained by such products can have dire consequences for victims. For instance, what if the brakes failed on a new car you had just bought, or the phone charger you left on overnight caught fire? Both of these example have happened in the past. Thankfully in a lot of cases the victims survive, but the results could be much worse.
If there is any risk to consumers, clear warnings must be given. Manufacturers 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, and immediately stop its sale if a dangerous fault is found;
- If needs be, order a recall of all the products sold; and
- Notify Trading Standards as soon as they realise a product they have put on the market is unsafe to consumers.
Consumers have a right to expect goods they buy to be safe and not cause them any harm. Defective good should be reported to the Trading Standards Officers at your local council. They can take the appropriate action and have the power to prosecute the offending party.
