If you have found yourself in this situation, no win no fee* Carew lawyers at Accident Advice Helpline can help you claim the compensation you are due, providing the injuries needed medical attention and the accident happened no more than three years ago.
Keeping consumers safe
All suppliers of goods to consumers have a legal duty to ensure their products are safe for the purpose they were intended. Non-compliance with the rules and regulations can have serious consequences — they can be heavily fined, or even imprisoned. If a product poses any hazard at all, they should:
- Warn consumers about any potential risks;
- Make sure those warnings are easily understandable;
- Monitor the continuing safety of products; and
- Take action if a safety problem is found.
Failure to do this could result in them being held responsible if any injury occurs through the defect in the products they have supplied, and the victim could well sue them for compensation for the suffering they have had to endure.
Trading Standards Officers
Any defective product should be reported to the Trading Standards Officers, if for no other reason than to prevent it from happening to someone else. They are responsible for the safety measure that govern goods supplied to consumers, and have the powers to:
- Order that the sale of the particular goods stops;
- Go to court and request that the goods be destroyed;
- Prosecute – if convicted, there will be fines or even imprisonment; and
- Demand the recall of all of the unsafe products.
