If you were injured by a defective product, it is likely your accident was the result of someone’s negligence somewhere throughout the design, production, testing, packaging, or distribution processes. Injuries resulting from the use of defective products can be severe, disrupting accident victims’ entire lives.
If the people responsible for ensuring that the product is safe for use fail to abide by the nationwide regulations legislated in the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act (CCPSA), they could potentially put consumers’ lives at risk. The safety protocols and rules outlined in the CCPSA apply to all businesses throughout the country that manufacture, import, sell, advertise, package, label, and test non-commercial consumer products. These include:
- 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
The safety guidelines outlined in the CCPSA are designed to reduce the risk of harm to human health by limiting the production and sale of potentially dangerous consumer items. Unfortunately, if negligence occurs throughout the product’s journey from the drafting table to the retail store’s shelves, consumers who purchase and use these defective products could be seriously injured.
In product liability claims, negligence is often linked to:
- A product’s defective design
- Errors during the manufacturing process
- Improper testing of the product’s safety
- Incorrect or improperly worded safety instructions
- Failure to warn consumers of the risks associated with the product’s use
- And more
No one should expect to sustain injuries simply by using a commonplace, everyday item in accordance with its included safety instructions. Those who have sustained compensable injuries because of a defective product should be able to hold the people responsible accountable for their negligence.
