If you have suffered from a personal injury as a result of a defective product then you may be entitled to a make a claim for compensation.
Product liability is defined as an area of the law in which manufacturers, distributors, suppliers, retailers, and others who make products available to the public are held responsible for the injuries those products cause.
The Consumer Protection Act covers all consumer goods, including pharmaceutical products and medical devices. It also covers goods used in your place of work and products which comprise another product, such as engine parts. A product will be considered to be defective if, it did not meet the regular expectations of people using it.
Examples of defective products may include toxic sofas, pharmaceuticals that causes severe but unlisted side-effects, and any other good that causes unnecessary injury.
