Every day, we place our trust in countless products. From household appliances and children's toys to electronic gadgets and vehicles, we expect these items to perform safely and efficiently. However, when a product fails to meet those basic standards and causes harm, it's termed as a defective product injury.
When a business supplies products to consumers, it must ensure the products are safe. Under the Consumer Protection Act, UK citizens are legally protected against injury and damage caused by defective products or faulty goods. Here, we delve deeper into understanding this.
A product is considered defective when it poses unreasonable risks when used as intended or even in a foreseeable misuse. This can be due to poor design, manufacturing flaws or inadequate warnings and instructions. A product that doesn't offer the safety that a typical consumer expects could be a candidate for a claim. Common causes of defective product injuries include:
Injuries can range in severity, from minor cuts and burns to more serious injuries like fractures, electrocution or long-term health complications. The nature of the injury often depends on the type of product and the nature of the defect.
Accountability doesn't solely lie with the manufacturer. Depending on the circumstances, various parties in the product's supply chain might be held responsible, such as designers, manufacturers, distributors, or retailers. Determining liability can be complex, but it's important for a successful claim.
Beyond the immediate physical harm, defective product injuries can also inflict emotional distress. Many people experience a loss of trust, heightened anxiety or even traumatic stress following an injury. It's important to acknowledge this emotional component as it plays a significant role in the overall impact of the incident.
