Have you been hurt because of a mobile phone?
Although we use electrical items every day, the increasing use of mobile phones, laptops and tablet computers means that we’re never far away from a device. Although manufacturers put all their products through numerous safety checks before they go to the market, sometimes a fault can slip through the net.
Unfortunately, a faulty electrical device can have serious consequences as it can injure the user. Often, a faulty electrical item will overheat. Whilst injuries can normally be avoided if this is caught quickly enough, sometimes people won’t realise there is a problem until it’s too late. If the faulty device causes a fire or shocks the next person to use it, serious injuries can be caused.
Whilst it isn’t always easy to predict when an electrical item will develop a fault or when an injury will occur, there are things you can do to try and prevent injuries occurring. Many manufacturers recommend unplugging electrical items, such as hairdryers and hair straighteners while they’re not in use and if you’re planning on charging a phone or computer, you may want to do this while you’re awake so you can keep an eye on it, rather than when you’re asleep.
Although some people opt to have their electrical items independently tested, this isn’t an option for everyone and if you’ve been hurt by a faulty electrical item, you may be wondering what steps you can take.
Often, a thorough examination can prove what caused the item to become faulty so it can be relatively easy to prove when a device has caused injuries. If you’ve suffered injuries because of a faulty or defective device, you may be relieved to know that a personal injury lawyer in Aviemore could help you to make a claim for compensation.
