No win no fee in Brocton
Most people, even if they have a few quid, are always keen to snap up a bargain. But while buying a genuine product at a substantial saving is something to celebrate, picking up a cheap counterfeit item is quite the opposite. As well as being of substandard quality, counterfeit goods could pose a risk of doing you an injury as the result of an accident that was not your fault. Worse still, if you’re buying an item that is going to be used by others, picking up a counterfeit product could result in your actions being behind somebody you care about getting hurt.
If you have been unfortunate enough, or foolish enough, to buy a counterfeit product and wind up getting injured, you might be able to use the services of a 100% no win no fee Brocton solicitor to take action against the person or organisation that sold it to you. You will need to understand however, that your chances of receiving some sort of recompense from a negligent party will be considerably lower than if you were taking action after being injured by a faulty product bought through the proper channels. The very nature of counterfeit sellers means they may be hard for you to track down.
Counterfeit goods and no win no fee Brocton solicitors
It’s not difficult to steer clear of picking up potentially dangerous counterfeit products. As a rule of thumb, if a deal on a branded item appears to be too good to be true, it most likely will be. If you’ve been hoodwinked into buying a dodgy fake item and been hurt as a result, you’ll need to do a number of things on top of getting in touch with a good no win no fee Brocton solicitor to look into the possibility of taking personal injury claim action.
Although not a legal requirement, reporting your misfortune will be the decent thing to do. This might stop others suffering the same fate as you did if the authorities can track down the person or organisation that sold you the item. Reporting a dodgy item might potentially do a lot more than stop the next greedy consumer from getting their fingers burned.
You can report counterfeit items to Consumer Direct, contact Citizens Advice or touch base with your local Trading Standards office. Once you’ve done this, you’ll be free to talk to a 100% no win no fee Brocton solicitor about the possibility of seeking personal injury compensation for the suffering you’ve had to endure.
