    If you have bought an item from a shop then you expect it to be in working order, and you certainly do not think that the item will cause an injury to you. Unfortunately, this happens all of the time. If this situation has happened to you, and you have come to harm as a result, then you may wish to use the services of our solicitors in Kentisbeare in order to help you to make an injury compensation claim against the people responsible.

    Who is at fault for your faulty item?

    Generally, the fault lies with the manufacturers of the products, or in some cases the importers. It is their responsibility to ensure that the item they sell is safe for the customer. They have a legal duty to ensure that this is the case, and if they fail to do so they could well have to face our solicitors in Kentisbeare if a consumer makes a claim against them.

    Retailers should know

    Retailers and wholesalers do not have quite the same level of responsibility, unless they knowingly sell a product that is unsafe. In this case, they would be just as liable as the manufacturers or importers, and could also face legal action from a consumer.

    They should all comply if they do not want to face our solicitors in Kentisbeare

    Complying with the rules and regulations is really important for these concerns, and apart from facing a personal injury claim they could find themselves in trouble with the Trading Standards Officers (TSOs). If a victims reports the faulty goods to a TSO, the responsible party could find themselves facing heavy fines, or in extreme cases imprisonment. A TSO also has the power to:

    • Order that the sale of the particular item stops;
    • Demand the recall of all of the unsafe products; and
    • Go to court and request that the goods be destroyed.

    Stop it happening to others

    Reporting your faulty goods that caused harm could prevent someone else from having the same problem. Logically, if one item has a serious defect, then others from the same manufacturer could have the same issue, and many more people could be injured through no fault of their own.
