Did you know that there are laws in place that can actually protect you from faulty goods in the United Kingdom? This is true. There are many different types of Faulty and Defective goods and just because the goods aren’t physically faulty doesn’t mean that you don’t have a claim.
A marketing defect occurs when after you have purchased the product you find that the company have totally failed in providing sufficient documentation on installation/maintenance/warnings and instructions. As a result of this poor documentation the product may behave unexpectedly; with incorrect use or even if used in a certain way.
A design defect is a case in which the actual designer of the product has overlooked an error which could cause serious harm. The product isn’t damaged and is in full working order however the way it operates means it is seriously dangerous to use and can cause harm.
A manufacturing defect is where the product is designed and marketed fine, however during the manufacturing process a serious error has caused the product to become damaged and dangerous. Normally Quality control will ensure the product will not be sold to the end user, however there is still a chance a product will be sold. If this happens and the product is dangerous enough to cause serious harm then you have a claim.
It is a legal requirement that when you buy goods that those goods are of satisfactory quality and are fit for purpose. There should also be no false advertising. Any product that is dangerous and could be harmful or has already caused harm can lead to a Faulty and Defective Goods claim.
