Product Liability Claims

If you've been injured due to a defective product, we'll help you win maximum compensation,


Product manufacturers and distributors have the legal responsibility to offer consumer guarantees regarding the product’s safety, and to provide clear communication of any and all risks. Failing to do so may be grounds for a product liability claim. 

If you have become injured or suffered as a result of a faulty product, GMP Law’s expert product liability lawyers will help you to get the compensation you deserve.

What is a product liability claim?

Sometimes an injury is caused, not by your actions, but by defective goods that you were using. Injuries caused by equipment defects can be devastating, resulting in permanent disability, economic loss and serious psychological damage. 

A product liability claim is a motion that holds the manufacturer of defective goods responsible for an injury that was the result of its use. A successful product liability case will involve a compensation package for the injured plaintiff. Product liability compensation typically comes in the form of a lump sum payment.

The amount of payment that can be received as a part of a product liability claim is typically based on:

  • Past and future medical and rehabilitation expenses
  • The loss of wages and superannuation if the injury prevented you from working
  • Compensation for pain and suffering
  • Any past or future care that you may need that extends beyond typical medical care. This may include a wheelchair or home renovations made to accommodate a disability.

To be eligible to pursue a product liability case, a consumer must be able to show that some form of damage occurred and was the result of the product in question. If you have been injured, you should be sure to hold on to the responsible product for future review by an expert and to consult a medical professional. Inform your doctor about how the injury occurred. In some cases, a product liability compensation claim can be part of a larger personal injury claim.

If you are unsure if the circumstances of your injury warrant making a product liability claim, an experienced legal professional can help you determine if your case has merit. 

At GMP Law, we offer a free consultation and work on a “no win, no fee” basis, meaning there’s never any harm in investigating if your injury qualifies.

Our Process

How does the product liability claims process work?

The product liability claims process typically looks a little different than many other legal proceedings. A case can either be made as a civil proceeding or on statutory grounds. A civil case is based on a breach of an implied contract, in this case the promise that a product is safe for its intended use. In a statutory product liability case, meanwhile, the plaintiff is arguing that the manufacturer ran afoul of Australian law.

The product liability claims process with GMP Law starts with a free, no-obligation consultation to determine your eligibility and answer any questions you may have.

Frequently Asked Questions

More information about product liability claims

Commonly asked questions about product liability claims:

Any product that causes injury or illness through normal use which hasn’t been manipulated can be described as a faulty product. Regardless of whether this was an electrical good, a car part, or even medical device, if the product was faulty and caused harm you may be able to make a product liability claim.

A no-win, no-fee lawyer can help you pursue your case without the financial risk that would usually be associated with a lawsuit.

Opting for a no-win, no-fee legal team means you will only be charged for their services if you succeed in your claim. This takes away a considerable amount of pressure, allowing you to proceed with a case without worrying about how to cover the costs if you lose.
