    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Solicitors in Stocksbridge


    You have been injured while using a faulty product, our experienced personal injury solicitors in Stocksbridge, here at Accident Advice Helpline, could help you to claim compensation.

    What to do if you are injured by a faulty product

    If you are injured after using faulty goods, the first thing that you should do is get in touch with trading standards. They are the best people to help you sort out problems with a faulty product. Alternatively, you can visit your local Citizen’s Advice Bureau, who will get in touch with Trading Standards on your behalf.

    By getting in touch with Trading Standards, not only can you ensure that your complaint is officially logged, which will come in very handy when you make a personal injury claim, but you can also alert them to the problem, which means they can take action to remove other faulty products from the UK’s shelves, preventing other people from going through the same thing as you.

    What you can claim for

    You can claim for any injury which comes about as the result of a faulty product, providing you can prove that the product was faulty, and it was this that caused your injuries. For example, if you buy a ladder that has been advertised for a specific purpose, but it is in fact unsuitable and you fall and break your arm, you can claim. Or if you buy shampoo which states that it is suitable for sensitive skin, but it burns your scalp, you may be able to claim personal injury compensation and we can help you to do so.

    It is important to bear in mind that you must use any product you purchase only as directed, if you neglect to do so and you are injured as a result, it is very unlikely that you will be entitled to any personal injury compensation, so make sure you always read the product instructions before you use an item.

    Do I need the help of personal injury solicitors in Stocksbridge?

    It is not strictly necessary to use one of our solicitors, but it is undoubtedly better to have us on your side than not. UK personal injury law is not as easy to understand as many people assume it will be, and if you do not have any legal training you may struggle to do everything you should to bolster your claim.

    We, on the other hand, have years of training and experience, which enables us to present the best possible case on your behalf.
