Product Liability

By law, products sold to consumers must be safe; this is the foundation that our advice rests upon.

Producers, manufacturers and importers must take an active approach to preventing safety problems or risk being sued, fined or worse imprisoned.

            We can help when a product fails:

Where injury has occurred and you have a potential claim or 
Where you are a defendant facing your own issue or claim

We have specific knowledge to help guide you through litigation, including in:


Consumer protection legislation
Government health and safety guidance
Sale of Goods Act legislation
Time limits on claims

If you wish to avoid issues altogether, we can help you by:

    Advising on marketing of products, instructions and warnings that will assessed in any court claim

Advising on regulations and safety legislation to ensure product compliance
Drafting information to help consumers understand risks
Helping ensure prompt correct action be taken if a safety problem is found
