Defective Product Claims - Manufacturing Defects

Article by
Kevin Timms
As a consumer, you are entitled to expect that a product conforms to the standard of safety common to that product generally and as marketed by the product manufacturer. Where an individual product fails to comply with that standard because it was not manufactured as intended, then that product will be defective. If that defect causes a personal injury to an individual a defective product compensation claim can be brought against the manufacturer of that defective product under the Consumer Protection Act 1987.

In order to bring a compensation claim in respect of a manufacturing defect in a product it has to be shown that the product contained a defect and that the individual wishing to make a claim suffered a personal injury as a result of that defect in the product.

Garden House Solicitors are specialist defective product solicitors and can help you make a defective product compensation claim. For more information please contact Kevin Timms on 01992 422 128 or email Kevin at
