Product Liability Compensation in Cyprus
Product Liability is the cause of thousands of injuries and hence millions are given in compensation for product liability every year in the European Union. What is important to note is that as consumers you have vested legal rights should you be injured due to the poor make of a product or its defects.
Lawsuits for Product Liability in Cyprus
Lawsuits for product liability can occur in several circumstances such as:
- Defective car airbags
- Defective car tyres
- Defective children toys with loose components and toxic material
- Dangerous products without the appropriate labelling
- Hazardous substances without the appropriate labelling and warning
Injuries related to product liability can be of minor importance but may also result to burns, bruises, brain damage and may even cause death.
Liability of the Manufacturer and the Seller
The area of law dealing with defective products has developed to primarily control the way in which products are designed, manufactured and distributed. Consumers who get injured by defective products in Cyprus can claim compensation for their medical expenses resulting from their injury, loss of earnings, pain and suffering, health rehabilitation, psychiatric treatment and more.
The area of law dealing with product liability is complex and imposes strict criteria in establishing responsibility on the manufacturer's side and sufficient proof of damage on the plaintiff's side. That is why expert legal advice is essential in claiming compensation from large businesses and / or product manufacturers.
If you wish to claim damages for product liability, you should expect an extensive investigation of the circumstances of your injury and the product itself, including a testimony by industry expert witnesses where necessary, as well as a lengthy preparation towards proving your case in Court.
The relevant legislation provides for the manufacturer or seller being held liable for placing a defective product into the hands of a consumer. Responsibility for a product defect that causes injury may also lie with all sellers of the product who are in the distribution chain from wholesalers to retailers.
