Product Liability claim

The Consumer Protection Act 1987 – if a product causes personal injury, and the injury was not due to misuse, the person injured has the legal right to make a compensation claim against the manufacturer or retailer responsible.

Whenever a product is sold to consumers, it must be safe for its intended use. Common injuries include burns caused by malfunctioning hair styling equipment, skin blemishes caused by contaminated cosmetic products, and receiving shocks from unsafe electrical appliances.
