Faulty Products

Product liability

Buying a product that is faulty, broken or malfunctioning is no doubt extremely annoying for most of us, but a resolution is usually obtained by getting a refund or replacement from the manufacturer. However, in some cases, that fault results in personal injury, either to yourself or a member of your family. When that happens you are entitled to seek compensation from the manufacturer for their negligence and need the best legal experts on your side.

A claim for damages usually includes compensation for:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Past loss of earnings
  • Loss of future wages
  • Past and future medical expenses
  • The cost of care provided to you by family members or professional care providers

At Arnold Thomas & Becker we have over 50 years of experience handling faulty product personal injury cases in Australia. We offer expert legal advice from our team and have a proven track record in achieving the maximum compensation for faulty product injury claims.

The term ‘defective product’ has been given a very wide definition by the Courts. Situations which may lead to claims for damages due to negligence could include:

  • Injuries caused to a child or baby from faulty or defective toys
  • A shock from electrical equipment causing injury
  • Injuries caused by defective white-goods, heaters, furniture, appliances, and tools
  • Failure by the manufacturer to provide appropriate instructions and warnings
  • Contaminated food products
  • Product design faults resulting in personal injury
  • Defective motor vehicles

How do I know if I am entitled to make a claim?

There are many different types of faulty product injury claims so we recommend you get expert legal advice immediately after the injury has occurred. Make sure you hold on to the product which caused the injury as it will likely become valuable evidence in your claim, along with details of any medical attention you have received. Then contact us for a free, no-obligation assessment of your situation.

What do lawsuit cases for faulty products cost?

At Arnold Thomas & Becker we understand that the legal fees involved with making a claim could be preventing you from seeking the compensation you deserve. That’s why we have a ‘no win no fee’ policy which simply means if you are injured on the road at work or in public you pay absolutely no fees unless we win your case. And unlike some of our competitors that include disbursement fees or litigation funding costs.
