Product Liability Claims

If you’ve been injured because of a faulty or defective product then there’s a chance you might be able to make a compensation claim for product liability.

When you buy a product you have every right to expect to be able to use it without compromising your safety. If therefore, you receive and injury from a product because of a fault then you’ll be able to make a claim for compensation.

The Consumer Protection Act 1987 states that if a product causes an injury, which is not due to product misuse, then you have a legal right to make a product liability compensation claim against the manufacturer or retailer responsible for the accident.

Common reasons to claim

Although mistakes are often made in the production of many products, a lot of them will never cause illness or injury and will therefore not put the consumer at risk. However, more serious mistakes are sometimes made and they do lead to people claiming compensation. Here are some of the most common reasons why:

  • Skin reactions because of faulty cosmetics
  • Illness due to contaminated food
  • Electric shocks from faulty electrical goods
  • Allergies from furniture
  • Burns caused by hairstyling equipment (straighteners, curlers)

Claiming product liability compensation

If you’re considering making a product liability claim then there are a few things that you should first consider. If the product which caused your injury has a safety warning then you’re unlikely to win your case if you were breaching the warning when you received the injury. You will also be unable to sue a manufacturer if the goods are counterfeit or if the injury was caused because the item was poorly put together by yourself or another consumer. However, you can make a claim if you’re injured by a product that wasn’t bought by yourself.

Sometimes it’s hard to establish who’s at fault if you were injured by a product which contains a number of components that have been made by a number of different manufacturers. In this instance you’re still able to make a claim although it could be settled in a number of ways. Sometimes, all parties will accept some responsibility and they’ll split the blame and therefore split the compensation. On other occasions you may be able to find out exactly which manufacturer is at fault as all of the other manufacturers aim to disprove their own responsibility.
