A number of the personal injury claims in East Dunbartonshire that we help claimants to deal here at Accident Advice Helpline, are to do with faulty equipment or products that have failed or malfunctioned in some way and caused a personal injury.
Suing the manufacturer or your employer
If the faulty products or equipment that causes the injury belongs to you, and the injury occurred in your home, then it is the supplier or manufacturer of that product/equipment that we will be helping you to sue for compensation. You should remember to keep the faulty product in safekeeping for subsequent inspection. If however the product/equipment belongs to your employer, and the incident that caused the injury took place at work, then it is your employer we will be helping you to sue for damages.
Personal injury claims in East Dunbartonshire involving medical products and medicines
We all tend to think of products and equipment in a literal sense when we think about claiming injury compensation. But the words “product” in “product liability” does indeed relate to a product, and that product could be a medicine or a piece of medical equipment. If this is the case with regard to any personal injury claims in East Dunbartonshire that you wish to raise, we will help you to address your compensation claim to the MHRA (The Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency).
The statute of limitations regarding personal injury compensation claim
Whatever the actual product is that has caused your injury, you are advised to launch your claim for compensation (preferably using our no win no fee services here at Accident Advice Helpline) at the earliest opportunity. The statute of limitations for most personal injuries is three years, but for cases of clinical negligence, it is only two years. To be on the safe side, the best thing to do is to action your claim as soon as possible.
