Every year, thousands of people suffer physical, emotional or mental damage as a direct result of exposure to or use of a defective product. And in many cases, the victims are entitled to claim personal injury compensation from the manufacturer if the damage they sustained was preventable, or due to negligence or omission.
The term ‘defective product’ can relate to almost any everyday object that doesn’t perform as it should because of a design or manufacturing defect, or because of inadequate warning that the product could cause harm.
Here are a few specific examples of defective products and the harm they can cause:
Illnesses or injuries resulting from defective products can have serious, long-lasting and even devastating consequences. You might have to take time off work to recover, or give up work completely. You might need long-term, potentially expensive treatment, rehabilitation or counselling to help you get better. And if the health problems you’re suffering are someone else’s fault, you shouldn’t have to bear these costs.
As well as getting you the compensation to which you’re entitled, making a defective product claim can also help by bringing the problem into the public domain – raising awareness of the dangers and making it less likely that other people will suffer in the future. Your claim could even save lives.
