Product liability claims relate to injuries which have been caused by a defective product.
Sometimes products malfunction, which can result in serious injuries to the user of the product. If this happens in circumstances where the product has been used in accordance with its intended purpose and instructions and not due to any fault on your part, you may be entitled to lodge a claim for compensation for your injuries.
Faulty goods which result in injury can include the following.
- Electrical items which are faulty and result in electric shock to the user, such as an iron, lamp or extension cord
- Small appliances or white goods with mechanical faults
If you have suffered injury as a result of a faulty product, you may be entitled to lodge a public liability claim.
It is important that you seek legal advice promptly regarding your potential entitlement to compensation. A compensation lawyer at Stacks Law Firm can help you by explaining how the law operates in Queensland and what your potential entitlements may be.
