The area of product liability covers injuries caused by faulty products. Products should be reasonably safe for public use and unsafe, faulty or defective products should not be supplied or sold to consumers.
If you have suffered an injury due to a faulty or defective product you could be liable for compensation.
Who is liable to pay the compensation? Depending on the circumstances liability for defective goods normally rests with the manufacturer. However, in certain circumstances the distributors/suppliers, retailers or others who make the product available could potentially be liable.
