In the UK, if any items are sold that are faulty and they cause an injury to a consumer, then that customer is within their rights to make a personal injury compensation claim, using the specialist solicitors in Lytham St Annes to help them, against the people who are responsible.
Defective goods can mean having to call specialist solicitors in Lytham St Annes
Any products that are sold in the UK have to be safe for the customer. The duty to ensure that this happens is with the manufacturers, producers and the importers. If any of them do not do their duty to ensure their products are safe and will not harm users, then you may be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim using specialist solicitors in Lytham St Annes to help you.
It does not matter how small or large the item is, the laws pertaining to the sales of goods remain the same. It is exactly why, every year, you will see items recalled by the makers. They have to constantly monitor their products looking for safety issues and if one is found, stop selling the product and recall as many as they can.
In some industries, this can cost millions of pounds, cars being a typical example. But if someone was injured because of a defective car, it would hit the headlines of the news and their sales would drop dramatically. At least by spending the money on recalls, they keep customer confidence and hopefully do not lose sales, as well as preventing consumers from being injured through no fault of their own.
It also means that they should not have to face solicitors in Lytham St Annes with personal injury claims; if many consumers were injured and made claims, it could end up costing them even more in compensation.
Another fear they will have is the Trading Standards Office becoming involved. They can stop the sale of goods and order recalls and also have the power to prosecute the guilty party, which can result in heavy fines and in extreme cases, imprisonment.
