Food and lifestyle supplements, while intended to help you improve your health, can occasionally contain ingredients that can cause you harm. In these circumstances, you may be able to make a claim against those responsible.

Our lawyers can help you claim compensation if you've experienced illness or injury due to defective food and lifestyle supplements. Our solicitors are currently helping clients with claims relating to dietary supplements and borderline medicines such as:

  • Velocity fat burning tablets
  • 2-4 Dinitrophenol
  • Tri-Methyl Xtreme

If you or a loved one have experienced problems caused by a food or lifestyle supplement, get in touch with us today. Our expert team can provide help and advice, as well as help you to access any rehabilitation services you may need.

When a food or lifestyle supplement is defective, it can cause serious problems. These types of supplements have been known to be associated with problems such as kidney damage, heart attacks, strokes, infertility, liver damage and jaundice.

Defective Food & Lifestyle Supplement Illness Claims - More Information

Defective Products

Manufacturers have a duty to their customers to ensure the products they release to the market are fit for purpose and safe for their intended use."

Tim Annett, Partner

Frequently Asked Questions

What Is The Manufacturer Responsible For?

It's the manufacturer's responsibility to make sure the products they sell are safe for consumers. Therefore any product that falls below a reasonably expected standard of safety can be considered defective.

As well as the manufacturer, the seller of the product is also responsible for ensuring the products they sell are fit for purpose. Lastly, under the Consumer Credit Act 2006, if the products were bought on a credit card, the card provider may be liable along with the seller. This might occur in the circumstance of a breach of contract in the supply of consumer products.

If you're unsure whether or not you're eligible to make a claim, get in touch with us today. Call us on 0800 056 4110 or contact us online for a free consultation on your case.

Who Do You Claim From?

Depending on the circumstances of your claim, it might be possible to claim against either the seller of the defective product, the manufacturer, or potentially the credit card provider if you purchased the products on a credit card.

If you're unsure about the claims process, or whether or not you should make a claim, our team of solicitors can provide you with helpful advice. Get in touch with us online, or call today on 0800 056 4110 for a free consultation on your case, and we'll be happy to help.
