Faulty product compensation process with Shine Lawyers

Faulty product compensation - how it gets calculated
Faulty product compensation is calculated differently depending on your individual circumstances. In most cases, a monetary value is placed on the gap between your predicted life path before the injury that resulted from a faulty product, and your actual life path since. Shine Lawyers can help you every step of the way and get you the compensation you need following your faulty product injury.

Common questions about Faulty Product Compensation Claims
No two cases are the same when it comes to faulty product law, but generally, claims have been brought forward for:
- Faulty machinery, components and cars;
- Defective medical prostheses, devices or implants;
- Unsafe chemical products or pharmaceuticals; and
- Defective consumer goods and household appliances
Assessing your legal options as quickly as possible is important and should be on your radar in the aftermath of an injury resulting from a faulty product.
In order to get you the compensation you need, lawyers like ourselves will have to prove:
- That the manufacturer and/or distributor of the product has distributed and supplied a product that provided inadequate warnings, was unsafe, defective and/or not fit for purpose
Every person’s situation is different and no two claims are the same, so it’s important to get the right advice from experts like Shine Lawyers when it comes to your legal rights.
