Product liability is when a product you have purchased from a supplier is not safe to use or has not been made with the proper care and attention that it should have been – and as a result this has caused an injury to you as the consumer.

The law doesn’t just cover physical things though; any service you purchase also comes under the same regulations, such as purchasing a taxi ride or hiring a builder. These still should be supplied with proper care and attention.
