Have you been hurt by hair straighteners?
Although many of us use electrical appliances every day, we often forget the potential dangers of them. With increasing numbers of smartphones, tablet computers and laptops being released, we’re often keen to get our hands of the latest models but how often do we assess the safety of these items
When we purchase products, particularly electrical items, we often just assume that they are safe to be released. Whilst manufacturers are required to adhere to health and safety laws, sometimes things go wrong.
Whilst any type of electrical item could potentially cause you harm if it was faulty, items which we use on our hair or bodies could be more risky than others. If, for example, you purchase a pair of hair straighteners or a hair dryer, you will probably find that it has an in built maximum temperature. Many even have a built in safety mechanism which would turn the appliance off if it overheated or if it was left on for too long.
However, if your unit was faulty and its safety mechanisms didn’t work, you could find that you suffered an injury as a result. If you’ve been hurt because of a faulty electrical unit, or any type of product, you may find that a personal injury lawyer in Blankney could help you to make a claim for compensation.
Often, it can be easy to assess the faulty item and determine whether or not it was a manufacturing or design fault which would have caused your injuries so it may not be too difficult for a personal injury lawyer in Blankney to prove who is liable.
If you can show that it was the manufacturer’s fault, there’s a good chance that you’ll be able to obtain compensation, with help from a personal injury lawyer in Blankney.
