Any product manufacturer has a duty to ensure that everything they release for public consumption is safe and usable by anybody, without the possibility of injury. This means that if a product is released that is defective or could cause injury to those that use it; the manufacturer is liable and thus open to a compensation claim.
If you have been injured by a faulty or dangerous product, you have the right, under the Consumer Protection Act of 1987, to make a claim against the person or organisation that created the product. The act means that a manufacturer has liability as soon as the product is released to market, so any potential claimant does not have to go through the process of proving their liability if the product has a design fault.
Additionally, if a specific product was defective, for example if a product line of toys is fine, however the one you have purchased is defective and has injured you, then the claimant has a responsibility to prove that the product they purchased was defective. If this can be done then the injured party is also eligible to claim compensation.
