Product liability compensation claims

updated mom hip replacement advice

Product liability compensation claims is an area of law that we specialise in and work in quite a lot, and we can represent our clients for cases on a No Win, No Fee basis.

One of the reasons we’re often involved in these kinds of cases is because they’re commonly linked to large consumer actions. As a firm, we specialise in consumer actions and complex litigations, and a great deal of the large injury actions involve products; often, medical products.

This doesn’t mean that we don’t represent victims for singular incidents as well, because we do! Here’s some advice about how we may be able to help you with a product liability case.

Individual product liability compensation claims

We can represent clients for individual product liability compensation claims on a No Win, No Fee basis in the UK.

The most commonly used piece of legislation for a case like this is the Sale and Supply of Goods Act 1994, which (generally speaking) outlines that products you buy must be:

  • As described;
  • Fit for purpose;
  • Not dangerous or pose a danger to you (unless it’s an inherent danger, in which case warnings should be in place).

For the last one, we can take a jigsaw as an example. If you injure yourself using a jigsaw because of your own actions with there being nothing wrong with the product, you’ll struggle to win a legal case for negligence. But, if the blade flies off and injures you because the blade clamp was faulty when you bought it and you didn’t know, you may have a case.

Large consumer actions

We represent thousands of people for large-scale product liability compensation claims.

We’ve recovered over £1.3m in compensation for victims of the infamous PIP Breast Implant scandal, and we have represented, and are representing, victims for several other cases that involve medical product laws, such as:

  • Vaginal and hernia mesh lawsuits;
  • Metal-on-Metal hip implant cases;
  • SerenoCem claims;
  • Oculentis compensation cases;
  • And more!

One of the biggest actions we’ve been involved in, which included a seat on the Steering Committee, was for the Volkswagen Emissions Scandal action. We also represent people for Vauxhall Zafira fire cases, and other emissions actions against Mercedes and Jaguar.

Making a claim

Product liability compensation claims can be directed against both manufacturers and suppliers. The law allows you to pursue a supplier as this is far easier than having to try and pursue a foreign manufacturer.

It can even allow you to pursue a regulator, and a good example of this is the PIP TÜV Rheinland cases, which we’re also involved with.
