How do I know if I have a product liability compensation claim?

If you have suffered an injury because of a faulty product or device, it’s possible you might have a product liability compensation claim under Queensland law. Australian manufacturers have a duty of care to make sure all their products are safe for the market. When manufacturers or companies breach this care and injury occurs, a compensation claim may be able to be brought forward.

Product liability general covers:

  • Faulty medical implants or devices
  • Faulty goods or household appliances
  • Faulty machinery, cars or parts
  • Dangerous drugs or chemical products

Shine Lawyers can help you find out if you have a product liability claim and advise you on your rights and entitlements.

How much can I receive in product liability compensation?

How much compensation you can get depends on a number of factors such as how bad your injury is, and the extent of your losses.

Shine lawyers are expert product liability lawyers that can assess your injuries and bring about a claim on your behalf. Once a lawyer knows the particulars of your situation they can give you a better idea of how much you can likely receive in compensation.

Depending on the nature of your product liability claim, in most instances a monetary value is placed on the gap between your predicted life path before the injury, and your actual life path since the injury.

How quickly do I have to bring forward a product liability claim?

There are strict time limits when it comes to making a product liability claim. In Queensland you generally need to make a claim within three years from the date of the accident.

You should seek legal advice as soon as possible, to avoid any likelihood you might not be able to claim due to missing a time limit.
