Defective product

You may have suffered injury and have long term problems because you have come into contact with a product during your daily life which was not safe.

We purchase a wide range of products believing that they have been vigorously tested to ensure they are safe for public use or consumption. Sometimes these products fail and may result in injury.

Faulty products include a wide range of items, for example: 

  • electrical goods
  • household furniture
  • food. 

If you have suffered injury as a result of a faulty product, then you may be entitled to compensation for both the injuries suffered and also financial expenses reasonably incurred and caused by the faulty product. These financial expenses may include the following:

  • the cost of the faulty product
  • loss of earnings
  • medical treatment costs
  • the costs of care and assistance which may be provided by family and friends because of the injuries suffered by you and
  • incidental expenses to include travelling and parking expenses for the purpose of seeking medical treatment. 

At Poole Alcock we will be happy to discuss with you the merits of a potential claim and how we are able to help you secure the appropriate level of compensation to which you are entitled.

Time Limit

Court proceedings must normally be commenced within three years of the date of your accident. If Court proceedings are not commenced within the three year period, then your claim will be out of time. Although a Court does have the discretion to allow Court proceedings to be commenced and to continue after the three year period has expired, this must not and cannot be relied on.

If you have any questions as to whether or not your claim may be out of time, then please do not hesitate to give us a call. It is essential you seek legal advice as soon as possible to prevent your claim being out of time.

Funding your claim

If your claim has reasonable prospects of success, then we will be happy to act for you on a ‘no win, no fee’ basis. We will make enquiries to ensure ‘no win, no fee’ is appropriate to you. We will be happy to discuss other funding options with you.

Free Consultation

We will be happy to help and to provide free initial advice.

There is no obligation to make a claim – you decide whether or not you wish to go ahead.
