Product Liability Claims
Have you been injured by a faulty or defective product? Did you know that we can help you claim compensation for your injuries from the manufacturer?
Faulty products can be extremely dangerous and cause serious injuries, especially when the product is aimed at child use. Injuries Direct can help you to claim maximum compensation if you have been injured by a product which was defective.
When faulty products find their way onto the market, more often than not they are recalled by the retailer who sold them. This is usually because the item poses a risk of harm to those members of the public who have purchased it. When they are not recalled, or you have been injured before the retailer has had time to do so and you have suffered an injury as a result, you may be entitled to make a product liability compensation claim.
The Consumer Protection Act 1987 states that although the retailer sells the product, it is the manufacturer who is responsible for any injuries that occur to those who have bought the item. Therefore the majority of product liability claims that arise from a faulty or defective purchase will be made against the manufacturer. However, in some circumstances the retailer cannot inform the customer of who the manufacturer is. In these cases, claims may be made against the seller of the item.

Examples of Product Liability Injuries
There are many examples in which faulty/defective products could cause you injury. Some of these include:
- Allergic reaction from hair dyes/products that don’t make the risks clear
- Becoming ill due to unsafe prescription drugs/medication
- Being cut or bruised by a sharp/loose part on the product
- Children being injured by small, dangerous parts on toys
- Electrical shocks from poorly wired products/plugs
- Food poisoning from contaminated food in shop/restaurant
- Garages performing an insufficient job on a car making it dangerous
If you have been injured because of any other faulty product and you believe you could be entitled to make a product liability claim for compensation, do not hesitate to call us for free, impartial advice.
Claims for faulty products can only be made if the item has been in your possession for ten years or less. However, you still have three years since the date of your injury to call with your compensation claim.
Defective products can also cause damage to your house, other property or other possessions. If this is the case you may be entitled to make a product liability claim if the total amount of damage caused is over £275.

Making a Product Liability Compensation Claim
Product liability can be stressful and unfair; particularly when there is a problem with a purchase that was expensive or of sentimental value and this has ended up causing you a personal injury. Other items may put you in danger and end up causing you unnecessary panic, especially if something happens to your child with a broken toy, or someone you love who is driving a car that has not been given parts that have been checked properly.
