Anyone who supplies products to consumers needs to make sure those products are safe, and failing to do so can have serious consequences for the responsible party.
They can face heavy fines, and in extreme cases, a custodial sentence. This is on top of a personal injury compensation claim made by any victims that have been harmed, many of whom may use the solicitors in Madingley at Accident Advice Helpline, to help them.
Any defective item can mean having to call the solicitors in Madingley
Makers and importers have the main responsibility to ensure the safety of their products, and they should take an active approach to preventing safety issues.
If one of them does not do their duty and you are injured by a defective product, then you may be able to make a personal injury compensation claim against them, using the solicitors in Madingley to help you.
Customising and servicing matters as well
Often consumers will purchase a product and then have it customised to make it unique, cars being a prime example of this. If someone customises a product for you, the responsibility to make sure it is safe then becomes theirs. The same applies to people who service thing, like the engineer perhaps who services your gas boiler. It is up to them to ensure it is safe and does not pose a danger to anyone.
If you decide to alter a product in anyway yourself, then the responsibility for making sure it is safe lies with you. If you are then injured by it, you would not be able to make a personal injury claim and our solicitors in Madingley would not be able to help you.
