One of the many consequences of being stuck in our homes for long periods is that we cannot escape that list of DIY jobs which needs attention. It was easy to ignore them when we were out and about, but now they are staring us in the face and demanding our attention. Many of us will be gearing up for the tasks, ordering products like power tools online, and using them for the first time.
We need to take care when using these products. The last thing any of us needs right now is a self-inflicted injury. Nevertheless, even when taking every precaution some of us still find we suffer injury through no fault of our own. Faulty design, inferior component, or worse still, counterfeit goods are all commonplace in the 21st-century market. If you should fall victim to this type of product, or for that matter any product purchased in a store or online, what can you do?
The Consumer Protection Act (1987) is a powerful tool in its own right for the injured consumer, holding to account manufacturers and importers of such products. Additionally, retailers and suppliers are contractually at risk if you injure yourself after purchasing their faulty goods. The lawyers in our Personal Injury Department will be able to advise you on these rights and assist you to obtain compensation for the injuries and financial losses which you have suffered.
