We all use dozens of products every day which, if they went wrong, could cause injury. Products has a wide definition, covering goods, component parts and foodstuffs. Basically most things that you use on a daily basis.

Obviously, many things that you use will have been made abroad but the law states that you can bring a defective compensation claim against the person who made it or the person who sold it. It does not even have to be you that purchased the item.

A product is defective if it is not as safe as a reasonable person would expect. This can mean that there is a physical problem with the item from poor design or manufacture, or the instructions for use or warnings are insufficient.
