A list of all the different types of mobility device would be endless as the term covers a whole range of objects to make life easier for those with a disability such as wheelchairs, chair lifts, walking sticks etc. A mobility device can be used at home, at work, whilst travelling, whilst shopping, for bathing, walking or sleeping.
From time to time, things do go wrong during design or manufacture and people can be injured by a mobility device. A dangerous fault in any product can cause an accident to occur, which can result in the user suffering a personal injury.
The Sale of Goods Act states that all goods should be suitable for their purpose and of satisfactory quality. The Consumer Protection Act 1987 provides liability where a defective product wholly or partly causes harm. If the product does not conform to these and you are injured as a result you may be entitled to claim compensation.
If your injury was caused by a defective mobility device, it is advisable to seek legal advice from a specialist solicitor. Specifically in cases involving a faulty product such as a mobility device, you should try to retain the product and its receipt as evidence where possible.
