If it can be proved that they failed to do this, you may be able to make a claim against them. Our experts have extensive experience in securing compensation on behalf of their clients, when they have been sold products which put them in harm’s way. If you’ve been injured or suffered damages due to a defective product, you may be able to make a product liability claim. Learn how solicitors can help you get the compensation you deserve.
We understand that when you are sold products that have endangered you, it can cause significant difficulties. But our expert team is here to help.
Is there legislation to protect consumers?
This responsibility falls under the Consumer Protection Act 1987. Under Section 3 of the Act, the manufacturer would be liable, if it can be proven that the safety standard of the product was not as reasonably expected.
What evidence is needed to support a product liability claim?
In order to proceed with a product liability claim, we would need to demonstrate proof that the defect with the product caused you to sustain an injury. The defending party would only be able to defend the claim if they can demonstrate that at the time the product was supplied, the defect was not discoverable. If you do believe you have a claim, we would investigate the following:
- The exact date and time the injury was sustained;
- The date and time when the product was purchased
- Proof of purchase
- Access to the product for testing
