Under section 61 of the Consumer Protection Act, the supplier and everybody else in the supply chain can be held “strictly liable” (which means that the consumer doesn’t need to prove intent or negligence) for damage caused by goods. Furthermore the consumer can elect to hold any party in the supply chain liable for these damages. This indemnity form allows you to claim back these damages from others in the supply chain if they caused the defect in the good that ultimately led to damage suffered by the consumer. You get:
