Defective product injury

Injured while using a product? We can help

Generally speaking, there is a legal obligation on manufacturers and retailers to ensure that the products they sell are safe to be used by consumers. If you are injured as a result of using a purchased product, then you may be entitled to compensation from the manufacturer of the product, and/or the retailer who sold the product.

In order to advance a claim, you will have to establish that the product you used was defective and that this defect caused your injury. To help you establish this, you should preserve as much of the product as possible for further testing. If possible, take photographs of the product as well.

Additionally, you will have to establish who manufactured the product and where it was purchased. If possible, you should try and locate any receipts, warranties, or packaging for the product.

You should also make notes of how you were injured, including details of how you used the product, how often you had used the product before, and how your injury occurred.
