Claim Compensation for Injuries from faulty products
We know that nobody expects to be injured by a defective product, especially if it was made by a trusted brand or bought from a retailer with a good reputation. In fact, it can be hard to believe that defective products make it onto the shelves.
Unfortunately, defective products are still sold and they often cause painful or life-threatening injuries. If you or a loved one have been injured by a faulty product, we know how shocking it can be and how unfair it can seem.
The least you deserve after being unfairly injured is an apology, and compensation to cover the costs of your treatment and recovery.
Although we can’t take away what you’ve been through, we can help you make a compensation claim for your injuries, as well as for any damages to your possessions, your home and the wider impacts on your life and family.

Defective products and the law udar11685
By law, any product or equipment you buy should be safe for you to use if you’re operating it properly. This means it should be able to carry out the task it was designed to do without injuring the person using it or those around them.
The Consumer Protection Act 1987 states that people who buy a product can recover any losses caused if it was defective and caused personal injury. Damage to your home and your possessions will also be taken into consideration, for example if the product caused fire damage.
All manufacturers should make sure they warn consumers about potential risks of using the product, and if they find out that there’s a defect, they should recall the items to avoid injuries from happening.
