Defective products - consumer

Products which are either defective or dangerous can cause injuries. In such cases, claims are governed by specific laws which can give rise to claims for compensation. Examples of such claims include ‘itchy sofa’ claims where consumers suffered severe skin complaints after sitting on sofas which had been treated with dangerous chemicals; defective gym equipment; exploding glass drinks bottles; other types of defective containers; injuries caused by defective vaccines or blood products have also been the source of recent product claims where injuries were caused.
