The majority of accidents happen in the supposed safety of the home, and a lot of the time it is because of faulty appliances. Home appliances in this country are rigorously tested for safety before they even reach our stores. However, some can and do slip through the net and into our homes.
What happens when we are in an accident caused by a faulty appliance? Is it the fault of the retailer or the manufacturer? Despite rigorous testing, and the fact that no system is perfect, the liability lies quite squarely with the manufacturer. Proving that the appliance was used in accordance with the instructions, and only approved accessories and leads were used, is another matter.
Personal injury compensation claims in Norfolk, brought on by faulty appliances, are not as rare as they probably should be, and Accident Advice helpline has seen its fair share.
Personal injury compensation claims in Norfolk
This type of accident claim would most likely be picked up by a specialist lawyer, and that is something that we are not short of at Accident Advice Helpline. Some of the best lawyers in the United Kingdom were tempted by our excellent record, national reach and wide variety of cases – and we still attract the best lawyers today.
The fact that, after thousands of compensation claims, including personal injury compensation claims in Norfolk, many cases are settled out of court goes to show that we have a certain reputation for tenacity.
