Common questions about Faulty Product Compensation Claims

If you have been injured as a result of a faulty or defective product, its possible you may have a claim for compensation under product liability law.

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
If you have been injured as a result of a faulty product or device, it can be hard to know where to start. Shine Lawyers are faulty product compensation claim experts who can help you during this difficult time.

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.

Contact Shine Lawyers today to find out if you have a claim.
If you decide to take legal action, in most cases, it’s the insurance company of the entity who is responsible for the faulty product that will pay the compensation to you.

Faulty product litigation can be quite complex so it’s important that you choose a lawyer that is experienced and has a good track record when it comes to these types of claims.

Shine Lawyers have been handling faulty product compensation claims for decades and have a team of lawyers that are highly experienced in this area of the law.

No two cases are the same when it comes to this type of litigation, but compensation is generally available for:
  • Physical and psychological injuries or losses (including past and future losses)
  • Medical, rehabilitation and hospital expenses
  • Loss of earnings
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Home help and nursing provided by anyone, paid or unpaid, if it meets certain conditions.

It’s possible there are other avenues to compensation available to you as well, so it’s important you speak to an expert lawyer at Shine Lawyers so they can properly assess your situation and ability to make a claim.
If you are suffering from an injury following a faulty product, we understand it can be a deeply troubling and stressful time. When it comes to how long a faulty product claim may take, it really depends on your individual circumstances and how serious your injuries are.
