Defective product causing injury or harm - your rights

If you have been injured, harmed or fallen ill as a result of a product which in some way is defective you are entitled to make a compensation claim. 

Digby Brown has acted for many people over many years who have been unfortunate enough to be harmed by a faulty, and in many cases, highly dangerous product.

Defective Product Causing Injury Compensation Claim - Digby Brown

Making a claim against a company

You should always make a claim against a manufacturer when a product is dangerous.

The legal process will firstly bring it to the attention of the manufacturer that their product has a defect, and secondly ensure that any manufacturer takes steps to either sort the problem and/or if it a common fault a recall notice can be issued.

These actions should help to prevent the circumstances of your accident happening to others.

Digby Brown Product Liability lawyers act for victims of defective products

Digby Brown’s specialist product liability lawyers are representing a number of clients affected by defective Russell Hobbs irons. Individuals were left with burns and other injuries due to the flex on some models failing, causing the iron to catch fire while in use. The issue has been featured on the BBC consumer rights programme ‘Watchdog’

Since Digby Brown began acting for affected clients, Russell Hobbs have agreed to recall 15 different models of the irons in question.

The Consumer Protection act of 1987 states that if a product causes a personal injury and the injury was not caused by misuse, you have the right to claim compensation against either the manufacturer or retailer responsible. In certain circumstance a claim can be made even if you did not buy the product.
