Product Liability Claims

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

Product liability claim FAQs

How long do you have to make a claim?

There are some time restrictions when it comes to filing a product liability claim. In most cases, you have three years to make a claim, either from the date of your injury or illness, or from the date you first realised that the treatment from your beautician or hairdresser was the reason behind your injury. However, if you are making a claim for someone who is a minor or who does not have the mental capacity to make a claim on his or her own, the three-year restriction may not apply. No matter which circumstances you fall under, it is critical that you contact our team of solicitors as soon as you are able.

How Much will a Product Liability Claim Cost Me?

We understand how devastating an injury can be, not only related to your physical and mental health, but to your financial circumstances as well. Being unable to work for an extended period of time, paying for rehabilitation or home adaptations, and covering everyday living expenses before compensation for a serious injury claim arrives creates a challenge for most. Our team of solicitors recognises these difficulties due to serious injury which is why we work on a no win, no fee arrangement. With a no win no fee structure, you do not pay any funds out of pocket to start your serious injury claim for compensation. Instead, you receive free legal advice until your serious injury claim is settled. Only once your claim is successful do you pay for the legal services provided. You and your loved ones will have no up-front financial risk, ensuring you can focus on the future and getting back to the life you knew before your serious injury took place. Let us handle the rest by simply getting in touch today.

Who Can Make a Product Liability Claim?

Anyone who has suffered an injury or illness as a result of the product they have purchased has the opportunity to bring a product liability claim. There are, however, a few things to keep in mind. Time Restrictions on Claims – First, the injury must have taken place in the last three years for a claim for compensation to be pursued, based on the date the injury occurred. This time restriction applies to those age 18 or older. Make a Claim on Behalf of Loved One – If a loved one has experienced a serious injury and has a claim for compensation, you may start the process on their behalf. When your loved one is under the age of 18, the three-year time restriction does not start until their 18th birthday. Exceptions to the Rules – There may be some exceptions to the three-year rule for serious injury claims, so it is important to get in touch with us if you believe you have a claim for compensation. The sooner you reach out to our solicitors, the quicker we can start working on the serious injury claim for you or your loved one.

Does it matter which solicitor I choose?

It is very important that you talk to an experienced, specialist law firm like Fletchers. You should consider taking the time to research a solicitor to ensure that they have the relevant experience. Depending on your situation, charities and other similar organisations can provide you with a directory of approved solicitors and a list of questions to ask your solicitor to ensure he/she has sufficient experience / knowledge of your injury or situation.

Can I change solicitor?

It is your right, and yours alone, to decide who represents you in a claim for compensation. Using a firm without the necessary specialist expertise can prove a costly mistake. So, if you are at all unsure about the quality of legal advice you are receiving from another firm, you are perfectly within your rights to seek a second opinion and switch solicitor if you so choose.
