Antigonish Defective Products Lawyer


Consumers need to trust that the items they purchase from local stores and online retailers will be safe for use. When the incorrect use of a product could put a consumer in harm’s way or cause them to sustain physical injuries, safety warnings and instructions should be included along with the commercial item. If a consumer purchases a product and uses it in accordance with its included instructions, they should not worry about being physically injured as a result.

This is because the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act (CCPSA) legislates nationwide safety protocols and regulations for all businesses that manufacture, import, sell, advertise, package, label, or test non-commercial consumer products. These safety regulations are in place to reduce the risk of harm to human health resulting from hazardous, defective products.

Unfortunately, errors or wrongful actions throughout the process of designing, assembling, packaging, and distributing a non-commercial consumer item could render a product defective and unsafe for use. When these dangerous products are released for sale to the general public, unsuspecting consumers could sustain severe physical injuries.

When the use of defective products leads to injury-causing accidents, it is often the direct result of its manufacturer’s negligence. In product liability claims, negligence is often related to:

  • The product’s defective design
  • Errors in the manufacturing process
  • Improper product testing
  • Errors, inaccuracies, or insufficient safety warnings on a product’s labels, packing, or advertising
  • And more

More often than not, when defective products are released for sale to the public, their manufacturers are unaware of any potentially injurious hazards associated with them. It is not only until it is too late and consumers have sustained injuries that most manufacturers learn about their products’ dangerous defects. When this happens, in accordance with the CCPSA, the manufacturer is required to inform Health Canada about the potential hazard so that a nationwide recall can be issued. Failure to inform the property authorities about risks of physical injury associated with a product they have manufactured could also be considered negligence.

If you sustained compensable injuries while using a defective product, you may be entitled to financial compensation. Our defective products lawyers serving Antigonish may be able to help you pursue a claim against the negligent manufacturer whose wrongful actions caused you to be injured.
