Cape Breton Defective Products Lawyer


Across the country, before non-commercial consumer products can be sold to the public in local stores or through online retailers, their manufacturers must comply with safety standards and regulatory processes outlined in the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act (CCPSA). The nationwide safety practices mandated by Health Canada apply to all businesses that manufacture, import, sell, advertise, package, label, or test consumer products, including:

  • Domestic items (e.g. appliances, furniture, etc.)
  • Recreational items (e.g. children’s toys, games, etc.)
  • Sports items (e.g. equipment, gear, safety pads, etc.)
  • And possibly more

Food and drugs, as well as automobiles and their parts are subject to other regulations, similarly overseen and enforced by Health Canada.

The goal of the nationwide safety regulations included in the CCPSA is to prevent harm to human health. No one in the country should be injured by using a consumer product in accordance with its instructions. By identifying products that pose a risk to the physical safety of consumers, Health Canada may prevent them from being sold to the general public, thus eliminating the threat of injuries.

However, despite the country’s robust system of checks and balances, occasionally, defective products find their way through the distribution chain. When these potentially dangerous items are sold to the public, often the consumers who purchased them are unaware of the risks associated with the products’ use until it is too late. Defective products can lead to severe injuries, and even fatalities.

In Cape Breton, when defective products cause unsuspecting consumers to sustain injuries, oftentimes it is the result of manufacturer negligence. In product liability claims, negligence could be linked to:

  • A product’s defective design
  • Negligent manufacturing of the product
  • Failure to warn consumers of the risks associated with the product’s use
  • Improper testing of the product’s safety
  • And more

In accordance with the CCPSA, manufacturers have a legal obligation to report hazardous product defects to Health Canada so that their dangerous products can be recalled. If a manufacturer became aware of a dangerous defect in a product they distribute for sale– or should have been aware of it– but failed to take necessary actions to prevent consumers from sustaining injuries, they may be considered negligent. In these cases, they may be liable for damages incurred by consumers who have been injured by their products.

If you were injured as the result of a product manufacturer’s negligence, our defective products lawyers serving Cape Breton may be able to pursue legal action on your behalf.
