Product Liability

When we buy products we expect them to be in good condition and safe, yet our expectations are not always met. Many times we come across a faulty product that causes an injury or damage upon use.

Anything from television to toasters to shampoos to edible products can cause an injury if they are not up to scratch. We at Stanley House Solicitors have successfully handled claims of all kinds, from single cases to some of the biggest and complex cases where a number of people join together to claim against a single entity or defendant.

What is a Product Liability?

As a consumer, manufacturers are responsible for ensuring their products are safe for you to use. If you have been injured or made ill by a product that is proven to be defective or faulty, the Consumer Protection Act 1987 offers you the right claim for compensation.

How we can help?

European Union Legislation guarantees the consumers the right to claim damages where injury has been caused as a result of using a faulty product. As reputed and established product liability claims solicitors, we have successfully represented our clients and won the claim for them.
If you think you have a case, or you require further assistance with your product liability claim or any personal injury claims, contact us right away.

Understanding Product Liability Claims

Most commonly a product may be faulty or damaged and may lead to a claim because;

  • Of the poor product design
  • Of contamination that occurred during manufacturing
  • Of a manufacturer /producer failing to recall a product they know is faulty
  • Of failure to display clear warning on a product

If you have a defective product and you want to make a claim, be sure you keep the product or photographic evidence together with any documents that may help you strengthen your case such as purchase receipts, packaging, and instructions.

If the product has caused an injury that demands rehabilitation, we will make sure that this is part of the claim in addition to claiming for a monetary compensation.

Has a Defective product caused you to have an accident or made you ill?

Many people do not realise that they can claim for compensation if a faulty or damaged product has caused them harm. Product injuries can be very wide ranging, from causing mild illness to severe damage due to inadequate warnings displayed on the product packaging.

Our team of expert personal injury solicitors has a strong track record of ensuring clients get the compensation they deserve for defective or faulty products.

Preparing for a Product liability Claim

Your personal injury solicitor will want to investigate your case in depth in order to fully understand the impact that the faulty product has had on your life and to ensure that any compensation you receive is sufficient to cover your future needs.

Preparing a product liability claim may take time as the process involves taking detailed statements, obtaining copies of your medical reports and seeking expert opinion. Ensuring that these are done properly with due diligence may take some time.

All this will improve your chances of winning the claim. The lengthy process should not deter you from making a product liability claim if you want to. Your Stanley House Solicitor will arrange all this for you, so you don’t need to worry.
