Have you been hurt by faulty products?
The people who are responsible for making sure that goods are safe to sell to consumers are producers, manufacturers and importers. They should:
- Take action if safety problems are found;
- Warn consumers about any potential risks;
- Provide information to help consumers understand the risks; and
- Monitor the safety of products.
Unfortunately, these processes aren’t always applied and faulty products can make their way into consumer’s homes. If you’ve been injured because of a faulty product, you may want to contact a personal injury lawyer in Prestatyn.
If you’re able to prove that you didn’t contribute to the accident, there’s a good chance that you’ll be able to make a personal injury claim and, if successful, you could receive a considerable amount of compensation.
Working with a personal injury lawyer in Prestatyn
Unfortunately, people don’t always realise that they can obtain compensation after an injury caused by a faulty product. This can result in them missing out on their chance to take action. In addition to this, some potential claimants assume that making a claim against a large company will be difficult, so they don’t bother to seek legal help.
However, making a faulty product claim with a personal injury lawyer in Prestatyn needn’t be difficult at all. In many instances, the product can be examined and investigated to determine the cause of the fault. If it’s shown to be caused by the manufacturing or design process, obtaining compensation could be fairly easy.
However, you will need to have obtained medical help for your injuries before you’ll be able to take action with a personal injury lawyer in Prestatyn.
When should you make a claim?
If you were hurt some time ago but you didn’t realise you could take legal action, it may not be too late to obtain compensation. Generally, claimants are given up to 3 years’ to make a claim so, if your injury, occurred within this time, you could still obtain injury compensation.
