BGR Bloomer Solicitors - Personal Injury Solicitors

Defective Products

If you have been injured by a defective product in the last 3 years and it was not your fault contact us to see if you are entitled to defective product compensation.

Any goods you purchase are required to be of satisfactory quality. This includes being safe. If they are not, then you may have a claim for redress against the supplier under the Consumer Protection Act 1987.

Part 1 of the Consumer Protection Act 1987 imposes strict liability on product producers for harm caused by defective products. This means that where someone is killed or injured product liability compensation can be claimed without having to prove the producer negligent, provided it can be proved that the product was defective and the defect caused the injury.

What products are covered?

All products, including food, and goods used in the workplace. 

Who is liable?

Who can claim?

Any person who suffered as a result of the defective goods can sue, whether they were the initial purchaser or not (i.e. anyone injured by the goods or anyone whose property was damaged as a result of the defect).

We have built our reputation for providing clients with a quality service and hence we ensure that your product liability claim is handled by a fully qualified product liability solicitor throughout. Most firms of solicitors consider these types of accidents as work that should be done by unqualified staff. However, we do not share that view and believe that your case is as important as any other type of accident claim.
