Make A Faulty Product Claim For Faulty Medical Products

According to the Consumer Rights Act 2015, you could have the right to damages if a product you’ve been sold causes you to suffer injuries due to it being faulty. A faulty product claim could be made in some cases directly against the manufacturer, or against the person that provides you with the product. For example, if you suffered injury because of a defective hip implant, you may be able to take action against the NHS or private medical provider.


How To Prove A Faulty Product Claim

To make a faulty product claim, you would need to prove that the item that you bought was faulty. You would also have to evidence that you suffered harm directly caused by the faulty product. You’d need to attend an appointment to collect medical evidence from an independent expert. They would examine your injuries and put together a report that verifies how you have suffered. Lawyers and the courts could use this as well as a publication called the Judicial College Guidelines to hone in on what could be an appropriate compensation amount.
