Defective product injuries

Compensation for Defective product injuries

If you have been injured, or become ill, as a result of a product which was defective, you may be entitled to make a compensation claim. The law provides good protection to consumers injured by defective products. But there can still be complexities in ensuring the claim is directed against the appropriate company or organisation. While most claims are initially directed against the manufacturer of a product, there can be some situations where the supplier of the product can also be included.

It is not always easy to identify the correct manufacturer. Many products are built from a number of different components each of which may have been manufactured by different companies. It is important that you have the right advice from expert lawyers with experience in successfully pursuing claims for injuries from defective products.

The information that can usefully be provided at the outset includes:

  • The place your bought the product
  • The date you bought the product (if possible, proof of purchase such as a receipt, order form or delivery note)
  • Identity of the manufacturer, if known
  • If possible, which part of the product failed causing the accident

Don’t worry if you cannot provide every piece of information at the outset. We can assist in obtaining some of these pieces of information.
