Problem sofa buyers could claim compensation
Personal injury solicitor, Garret Spring, a Partner at Manchester law firm Pannone, says people who bought leather sofas manufactured by Linkwise in China and sold through three main retailers, Argos, World of Leather and Walmsley’s, should seek immediate legal advice, especially if they have experienced any skin reactions since purchasing the product.
His comments come after reports of thousands of people suffering adverse reactions to a fungicide put inside the settees to prevent mould. Now there are further concerns after TV consumer programme Watchdog confirmed the same fungicide has been found in sofas sold by Land of Leather and made by China based, Eurosofa.
Commented Pannone’s Garret Spring, “The skin reactions experienced are extremely painful and there has even been a case of a woman dying after she developed a severe allergic skin reaction after buying two Eurosofas in September 2007. Whilst we cannot say her death is directly attributable to the sofas, it is a worrying factor in her subsequent illness and death. I would certainly advise people with any concerns to take both medical and legal advice.”
