I am currently representing two clients who became very ill after using a sofa protector spray manufactured by Mcklords. The product was on sale at Harveys the furniture retailer.
They are suffering from a long list of symptoms including coughing dizziness painful headaches skin rashes breathing difficulties stomach pains and vomiting which all started very soon after the spray was used on their sofa.
While the case is still in its infancy if the injuries are proved to have been caused by the sofa protector spray then my clients stand to win considerable compensation for their injuries sustained and loss of earnings (one client has taken more than three months leave from work due to his illness).
There are reports circulating that many other people have become ill immediately after using the same product. Our advice to anyone who has experienced similar symptoms after using this product is to visit their doctor immediately and not just put the symptoms down to flu or a viral illness.
Harveys are aware of the issue and have been offering refunds to customers who return the spray. If you intend to make a claim for compensation then we also advise you to retain the product it may prove to be vital evidence and to contact us immediately so we may best advise you how to proceed.
Partner Daniel Slade and his Product Liability team here at Express Solicitors have extensive experience in this field having successfully sought compensation for many clients involved in the muchpublicised Argos ˜toxic sofas cases.
Mr Slade and I would be interested in learning about any similar cases and discussing the potential for making a claim for compensation on a no win no fee basis.
