When you purchase a product, you expect it to be of reasonable quality and you expect it to be fit for the purpose it claimed to perform.
In our consumer society most products work as they are designed to do and if they don’t then a problem might easily be sorted out by referring the problem back to the supplier for a refund or an exchange.
However, sometimes when a product fails it can cause injury or distress to the user and the consequences can be devastating. When product defects are dangerous and have caused injury, it is possible to make a liability claim which, if successful, can result in a compensation payment.
Manufacturers, distributors, suppliers, retailers and others who make products available to the public are liable if they cause injury because they are defective.
At Mander Hadley, our friendly and knowledgeable team of legal experts have regularly helped clients resolve problems caused by failing products, by making product liability claims on their behalf.
Here are just a few examples of the many cases that Mander Handley have dealt with which have led to successful product liability claims:
- A swimming pool ladder bought from a supplier was defective, causing a child to fall and suffer a head injury
- A mesh for a hernia repair failed; this required a further operation, inconvenience and time off work
- A leg iron calliper failed, causing injury
- A Cafetiere failed, causing severe burns
