Has a new electrical device injured you?
With many of us relying on mobile phones, laptops and tablets to get through the day, most people buy at least one or two electrical items every year. Due to the way in which they are made and produced, the inner mechanisms aren’t viewable as they are normally encased within the unit.
This means that when you purchase the item, it will be practically impossible for you to know if it’s faulty or not. Once you get the item home and unwrap it, you may be able to notice any obvious faults such as a cracked screen or a failure to charge, but sometimes a fault may not become apparent until you start to use the unit, or until it injures someone.
In some instances, you may be aware that the item isn’t working exactly as it should. If it gets very hot while charging or turns itself off for no reason, for example, you may want to seek advice from the retailer. While these minor faults may seem irritating, they could indicate a bigger problem with the item and you could be putting yourself at risk of injury if you continue to use the item.
Unfortunately, sometimes a faulty electrical device will give no warning and you won’t know that there was something wrong with it until it causes an injury. If you are hurt while using a faulty electrical device, there may be action that you can take.
