Compensation for your Product Liability Injury Claim
If a product is defective or dangerous and causes an injury, you can take legal action against the manufacturer, importer or supplier, if the problem was due to faulty design or manufacture. Why not call a specialist – Andrew & Andrew Solicitors?
We expect all the products we buy to be safe and in good condition, yet this is not always the case. Anything from cosmetics, food, medicine, machinery and toys are governed by the statutory requirement that the item is safe to use or consume. Manufacturers have a strict responsibility to ensure that their products are safe. Products can either inflict injury or cause you to feel unwell – if you’ve experienced this you can bring a claim.
There are usually four main reasons why a product may be faulty and lead to a claim:-
- a manufacturer failing to recall a product they know is faulty
- poor design of the product
- contamination during manufacturing
- failure to display sufficient warning on a product
It is quite concerning looking at the statistics regarding faulty products that have been recalled by manufactures:-
- It has been reported that the number of products recalled in the UK rose in 2010 to a new high
- There were 229 products recalled between November 2009-2010
- This was an increase from 149 recalls during the twelve months before
Have you suffered an injury due to a faulty or dangerous product? Have you been made unwell by contaminated food? Do you feel that you were insufficiently warned about the hazard of a product?
If so contact Andrew & Andrew Solicitors who have over 60 years of experience in handling product liability claims. Our professionally experienced team will listen to your evidence as to how the event occurred and advise you as to your chances of success.
We will also point out how further evidence can be gathered to support your claim. For example, it is very important to take photos of the product and retain the item and/or the packaging together with the purchase receipts, as this is all good evidence.
Not only can we deal with obtaining a medical report to evaluate your injury claim, we can recover losses as a direct consequence of the events such as loss of earnings, private medication and care if it was required. In addition, we can organise rehabilitation so that you may make a better recovery.
