Amherst Defective Products Lawyer


No one expects to be injured when they use an everyday consumer item. Most people take for granted that the products they purchase will be safe for use, especially when they comply with any included or advertised safety instructions. However, potentially dangerous, defective products may be released for sale to the public. When this occurs, unsuspecting consumers could sustain serious, even fatal injuries.

In most scenarios, the manufacturers of a defective product are unaware of the dangers it poses to human health until it is too late and consumers have already been accidentally injured. In accordance with the safety regulations outlined in the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act (CCPSA), as soon as a manufacturer becomes aware of a hazard associated with a product it supplies, they must alert Health Canada so that a nationwide recall can be triggered. If a manufacturer neglects to take proper action, their failure to do so could be considered negligence.

Additionally, in product liability claims, negligence could be linked to a number of actions, inactions, errors, omissions, or other forms of wrongful conduct throughout the manufacturing process. A manufacturer may be considered negligent if:

  • The product was designed in a defective manner
  • An error occurred during the manufacturing process
  • The product’s safety testing was conducted incorrectly
  • The product was mislabelled
  • The product’s packaging and/or safety instructions did not adequately communicate risks associated with the product’s use
  • The manufacturer failed to report the health hazard to Health Canada
  • And possibly more

Companies that manufacture, import, sell, advertise, package, label, or test non-commercial consumer products anywhere in the country are required to comply with national safety standards and practices mandated by the CCPSA. These regulations are in place to protect consumers from potentially dangerous products.

If product manufacturers flout these safety regulations and shirk their responsibilities to consumer safety, their negligence could have earth-shattering repercussions. When consumers sustain compensable injuries simply by using defective products, their items’ negligent manufacturers may be liable for damages they have incurred as a result.
