Solicitors in Helmsley


If you buy an item from a shop, you expect it to be in working order and you certainly do not expect it to cause you any harm, but sometimes that is what happens. If you are injured as a result of a faulty product, then you may have to make a product liability compensation claim, using the solicitors in Helmsley at Accident Advice Helpline to assist you.

The solicitors in Helmsley say products should be safe

The manufactures, the importers or producers are the people who are responsible for making sure that your product is safe and will not cause you any harm. All products should undergo safety testing, and if they fail these tests, they should not be put on the market for sale. But occasionally a faulty product will slip through the net and depending on what it is, can cause an innocent victim to be injured.

If those responsible do not comply with the regulations, they can be prosecuted and face heavy fines, or even a prison sentence. They might also have to face our solicitors in Helmsley if the injured party decides to make a compensation claim.

They should warn of potential risks

Some products by their very nature will pose risks to their users and the makers need to warn consumers of those risks so that they are aware of them before they buy the product. They should:

  • Provide information to help consumers understand the risks
  • Monitor the continuing safety of products
  • Take action if a safety problem is found

The solicitors in Helmsley talk about the consequences

If you are injured, whether you brought the product or not, then you can make an injury compensation claim. As well as any pain or suffering, you can include any losses or costs incurred because of the injury caused by the defect. This can become very expensive for those responsible which is why you hear so often of products being recalled because a problem has been found.

How to report the problem

Another product like yours could cause someone else an injury, so you should report the defect to The Trading Standards Office to hopefully stop others suffering the same injuries as you. They have the power to:

  • Go to court and request that the goods be destroyed
  • Prosecute the guilty party
  • Demand the recall of all of the unsafe products
  • Order that the sale of the particular goods stops

Then you should call Accident Advice Helpline. Imagine trying to fight some of the really large manufacturers – it would be a nightmare for you.
