We’ve been involved with a lot of individual and group actions cases that stem from faulty and dangerous products. This doesn’t just cover injuries that stem form tumble dryers and cars, but it can also cover medical products as well. In fact, medical products are some of the most common types when it comes to people being harmed.
Here’s a little advice about your rights when it comes to making a claim for personal injury compensation that arises from a faulty product.
How a faulty product compensation claim works
A faulty product compensation claim is largely similar to any other type of case. We need to make a finding of negligence, which in cases like this means proving that a product is faulty and has caused you harm.
It could be that a product:
- Is inherently dangerous by design;
- Is damaged during manufacturing or transport and this causes injury to you;
- Can be harmful if not used in the right way, and where warnings and instructions for this are not properly given;
- Causes a reaction where warnings and such risks are not adequately explained.
We can assess a potential claim on a case-by-case basis, and our team can happily advise you on a free and no-obligation basis as to whether we can help you. You can pursue a case against a manufacturer, or a seller which is common when goods are often imported form abroad. The Supply of Goods and Services Act means that the seller can be equally as liable as the manufacturer.
We’ve seen it all…
Over the many years that we’ve been helping victims make a faulty product compensation claim, we feel like we’ve practically seen it all.
We were heavily involved in the PIP Breast Implant compensation action, where we have recovered over £1.3m in damages for victims so far. We’re still involved with the French action as well, so this figure will likely increase.
And then we have seen the more unusual stories as well, like flammable creams where residue build-up on fabrics has caused harm. We’re helping people who have been injured by faulty Vauxhall Zafiras that have caught fire, and a range of other cases where people have come to harm as a result of products.
