I was injured by a faulty product – can I make a claim?
Yes – A product must be safe for its intended use when it is sold to customers.
If you are injured by a faulty product (and you were using the product correctly) you are legally entitled to make a claim against whoever is responsible. This area of the law is called ‘product liability.’ It maintains that manufacturers, distributors, suppliers, retailers, and others are held responsible for the injuries which their products cause.
What is manufacturer’s liability?
The manufacturer of a product may be liable for any personal injury caused by a faulty product. Goods must pass complex tests to make sure that they are safe for the public. A manufacturer may be liable if a person is injured by a product that was sold faulty, developed faults at a later date, or has insufficient labels to warn of potential hazards.
What products can be found at fault?
A wide range of products can be found at fault. Here are some of the most common:
- Everyday household items.
- Food, drink or tobacco.
- Medical products such as drugs or contraceptives.
- Beauty products.
