About Faulty Products

Information about Dangerous Product Compensation Claim

When you purchase a brand new product you expect it to have gone through a number of checks to ensure that it is safe for the public to use.  In the vast majority of cases this is correct and by the time a product reaches the shelves it is safe to use; however, accidents do happen and some dangerous products slip through the net to become sold to the public.

If you have an accident and suffer a personal injury due to a faulty product, you may be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim.

For example if the accident was due to a defective product such as a chair you purchased and brought home, which subsequently broke beneath your weight or a piece of electrical equipment, which caught fire and burned you, then you would be entitled to make a personal injury claim against the manufacturer of the faulty product or the person who sold it to you.

Dangerous products can also be items of food which are sold to you and are not safe to be eaten. If you contract food poisoning as a result of a product which was sold to you in an unfit condition, you may be able to make a dangerous product compensation claim.

What should I do if I am injured by a Faulty Product?

Action to take following a Dangerous Product Accident

To make a successful faulty product injury compensation claim, you would need to prove that another person was responsible for your personal injury.

To help your case, you should report the dangerous product accident to the person responsible for it as soon as possible, make a note of your accident in the accident book if possible, take names and addresses of witnesses to the accident and if appropriate retain and take photographs of the faulty product itself. You should also keep the original purchase receipt for the dangerous product as it may be required as evidence.

If you are intending to claim expenses such as prescription costs and travelling expenses as part of your faulty product injury claim, remember to keep receipts as evidence.
