Have you, or a family member, suffered an injury or become ill as a result of a faulty product? If so, our Leeds-based product liability lawyers could help you win compensation today.
We come into contact with products constantly throughout our everyday lives; they are used to entertain us, feed us and assist us. We never think that these products could cause us any harm, or lead to serious injuries and lasting health problems. However, when products do become faulty and cause harm, our lawyers are here to help.
What Is A Defective Product?
Product liability concerns the area of law which handles manufacturers, distributors, suppliers and retailers, making them accountable when products cause injury or illness. No matter what sort of contractual limitations are placed on a product with regards to liability, if a product has been found to be faulty, its manufacturer will be liable for damage under the Consumer Protection Act (CPA) or the common law of negligence.
A defective product is any good in which a component part, or incorporated raw material, is defective. Depending on what element of the good is faulty, either the manufacturer, or the component manufacturer, or both, will be potentially liable. A product is defective because it has put user safety at risk, has caused bodily harm, or has damaged a user’s property. A product is not defective simply because a manufacturer has launched a safer version of the product on the market.
Claiming Compensation For A Faulty Product
Our product liability specialists fight to win you the maximum amount of compensation for the pain and suffering that you have experienced. Each expert solicitor has a vast knowledge of the law surrounding product liability claims, which is very important when it comes to negotiating the intricacies of this type of case.

Photographs of the product, showing where it is faulty
Photographs of the damage the product has caused
Evidence of medical treatment received following injury by faulty product
Anything that lends credibility to your claim can alter the final compensation package that you walk away with.
