Injuries from Defective Products

Consumer Protection Injury Claims

This is an area of law where there is a significant area of overlap between injury claims law and contract law.

Claims  for compensation for personal injuries can be brought

  1. against the seller of the product in contract law relying on an express or implied contract term
  2. against the supplier of the product in negligence relying on the “neighbour principle”
  3. against the supplier,  manufacturer, trade-marker or importer under the Consumer Protection Act 1987.

It is often necessary to show that the safety of the product was not such as one would be entitled to expect.

It is a good idea to keep all proofs of purchase in case a dispute arises and the defective product too unless it is a food item.
