We are a nation of consumers and while we expect all the products we buy to be safe and in good condition, this isn’t always true.
From cars to cleaning products, faulty products can cause injury if they're not in good condition and, if you suffer an accident because of a faulty product, you may be eligible for compensation.
Claims Direct can help you make a compensation claim for a faulty product - start your claim online today.
Types of injury
Injuries you could suffer with from a faulty product include:
- Burns caused by a electrical equipment catching fire
- Scarring caused by contaminated cosmetics
- Broken limbs after falling off a defective ladder
- Poisoning caused by contaminated food bought in a shop.
You can also make a claim if you are injured by a service provider, such as a hairdresser or beautician.
There are a number of reasons that products can be faulty, such as:
- Contamination during manufacturing
- Poor product design
- Failure to display sufficient warnings
- A manufacturer failing to recall products that are known to be faulty.
It's important to remember that there are laws in place to protect consumers from faulty products. As well as consumer goods, this includes services, such as those provided by hairdressers or beauticians.
If you're planning to make a claim for an injury due to a faulty product or service, make sure you keep any documents that may relate to your claim, including packaging, instructions and receipts.
