Carrs Solicitors win employee’s product liability claim

Carrs Solicitors acted on behalf of a Sales Executive who sustained injury to his lower back following the collapse of a stool provided by his employers.

Following recent changes in legislation, it is not always possible to claim against an employer as a result of injuries caused by defective equipment, although it is possible where negligence can be established and where the requirements of the Employers Liability Defective Equipment Act 1969 are met.

In this case we were able to avoid involving the employer altogether and successfully brought a claim against the suppliers of the equipment under the Consumer Protection Act 1987 which provides protection not only to consumers but to workers provided with defective equipment by their employers in the course of their work.

Upon receiving his settlement our client made the following statement

“Thanks for all your help and your professional approach and advice. I felt absolutely confident in your company and approach and would recommend your services to anybody. I would like to thank you and your team for helping me to reach a successful outcome.”
