If you live in North Tyneside or any where else within the UK, you may wish to talk to an injury lawyer at Accident Advice Helpline if you have had a defective product, for example a car, and that has caused you to have a road accident in North Tyneside, and as a result you have become injured badly enough to seek medical attention.
If the accident happened in the last three years, the law in the UK says the guilty party should financially compensate you. At Accident Advice Helpline we handle personal injury claims all the time – It is what we specialise in.
One of the areas that claims sometimes occur from is when a defective product has caused harm to the victim, such as a car that has made you have a road accident in North Tyneside. The manufacturers have a legal responsibility to make sure that products that are to be sold to consumers are safe, but occasionally things go wrong, possible examples being:
- Tongs, dryers, straighteners or bleaches and bleaching equipment can cause damage to the hair and scalp at the hairdressers
- Children can be hurt by playing with defective toys
- Breast implants, other cosmetic implants, replacement hip joint or any other faulty medical device can cause injury
- Faulty brakes on a new car could have dire consequences
- Any electrical goods in the home or garden that are faulty can cause serious injuries
A road accident in North Tyneside – finding who is responsible
The people who have the biggest responsibility for safety is the manufacturers, producers and importers of the products, but wholesalers and shops also have legal obligations. Probably more than any other type of products, it is why you see recalls on cars. The makers find a fault and it costs them millions of pounds to recall and rectify the vehicles.
The cost involved if they did not do this though could be so much more. Apart from compensation claims against them, they could lose an untold number of sales if drivers were being injured because of a faulty car.
However, it does not matter what faulty goods have caused you harm, you may well be entitled to claim compensation for your injuries, and you should contact Accident Advice Helpline to help you with your claim.
