When you purchase a product you expect it to be safe and free from defect. However, this is not always the case and many people are injured as a result of faulty products. Manufacturers are legally obliged to ensure that all products are safe for use before making them available to consumers.
When is a product faulty?
A product is faulty if it is not as safe as any reasonable person would expect it to be. The fault is not only limited to physical problems that can cause injury, but it also extends to damages caused due by inaccurate instructions or by the suitability of the product for the purpose it is advertised.
Manufacturers are unable to exclude their liability for a defective product. Here at Swain & Co Solicitors, we can help you if you have suffered an injury due to a defective or faulty product. With our excellent track record and experience with dealing with similar claims we aim to get you the compensation you deserve.
Potential defective product claim:
- Poor product design
- Damage to the product during manufacturing
- Manufacturer failing to recall a defective product
- Failure to display sufficient warning on products
Impact of an injury

Minor injuries can lead to time off work, which can result in loss of earnings, while major injuries can result in a long-term impact.
