No Win No Fee* Telford and Wrekin
Whenever you buy an item from a shop, you have legal rights as a consumer. You can, under these legal rights, expect that the item, whatever it may be, to be safe for use and fit for its purpose. The legal obligation to you is known as a duty of care and both the retailer who sold you the item and the manufacturer who produced it carry a duty of care to all consumers.
In the event that an item you purchased from a retailer caused an accident where you or a family member received injuries, you would have the right to make a claim for compensation for those injuries. Compensation may be sought by contacting no win no fee* Telford and Wrekin solicitors.
Gas and Electricity
Many appliances now use either gas or electricity in order to power them. Whilst electrical items have to be plugged into the mains or require batteries, gas items generally have to be plumbed in by a fully qualified gas fitter.
In either event, you as a consumer have the right to know that the item you purchase will be safe as you use it. Gas and electric items carry with them particular risk as it is more likely that something could go wrong with the use of either item. For example, a faulty electrical item could create a fire by overheating or could give a consumer or user an electric shock. A gas item could also overheat but far worse than this could be the potential for leaking gas and causing carbon monoxide poisoning.
Therefore, the rules relating to the retailers and manufacturers of gas and electrical items are far more stringent, as are those relating to gas fitters.
With a faulty electrical or gas item in your home, you and your family could potentially be in danger from an accident and no win no fee* Telford and Wrekin solicitors could seek compensation on your behalf for any related injuries.
Bringing an item into your home for you and your family to use means that you have placed a degree of trust into the manufacturer and retailer. If this trust, in addition to the duty of care they have, has been breached and you have suffered injury as a result, you should not have to suffer unnecessarily. Compensation which may be sought through no win no fee* Telford and Wrekin solicitors could help you and your family to gain justice.
