    Negligence lawyers in Redhill

    Will I need help from negligence lawyers in Redhill?

    All importers of products into Redhill (and elsewhere in the UK) must:

    • Monitor the safety of products;
    • Take action if safety problems are found;
    • Warn consumers about any potential risks; and
    • Provide information to help consumers understand the risks.

    These rules apply to all goods, and if they’re not met then you might need the help of negligence lawyers in Redhill in order to make a claim for compensation.

    Everything from houses to kettles fall under the scope of these rules. If an electrical fault in your new house caused a fire and you were injured, you would be able to make an injury claim. You do not have to have bought the product yourself and it does not have to be new, as long as it has not been tampered with and it is that tampering that made it unsafe.

    Who is at fault?

    The blame for a faulty product can fall on a number of people; it’s not always the retailer. They usually have no liability for consumer’s injuries or property unless they knowingly sold an unsafe product. They do need to be more aware when it comes to high-risk goods such as toys, food, medicines and fireworks, though.

    Who enforces them?

    All local councils should have a trading standards department, and any faulty goods should be reported to them. They are responsible for safety enforcement rules and regulations and have the power to:

    • Get permission from the courts to destroy the goods;
    • Prosecute the guilty party which can mean heavy fines or imprisonment;
    • Stop sales of the defective products; and
    • Demand the recall of all faulty goods sold.
