You may have a claim for an injury caused by a product if you can prove that the defect in the product was the cause of your injury.
For a product to be defective, it generally must be deemed to be below the standard expected by consumers, or be provided with inadequate warnings, or unsafe or not fit for its purpose.
Dependents of a person injured or killed by a safety defect in goods can also claim for the losses they suffer.
What Should I do if I have been Injured by a Faulty Product?
- Seek immediate medical treatment;
- Keep evidence including the faulty product, photographs of the faulty product, and receipts of purchase.
- Seek immediate legal advice. It's best to speak to a lawyer before contacting the manufacture or provider of the goods. We offer a free, no obligation initial consultation and can organise a consultation on short notice, and usually the same day if required.
