Dieppe Defective Products Lawyer


There are extensive federal regulations in place to protect consumers across the country from harmful defective products. The Canada Consumer Product Safety Act, administered by Health Canada, seeks to prevent the manufacturing and sale of hazardous, potentially dangerous products throughout the country. Consumer products like toys, sporting goods, and other household items must go through a system of federally regulated checks and balances to ensure they are safe for public sale and use. On top of that, other federal laws regulate the production and sale of foods, drugs, motor vehicles, and their parts.

Since the country imposes such high safety standards on the products that are manufactured and sold nationally, it is only natural for Dieppe residents to assume that the items they purchase from any local store or online retailer must be safe to use. Unfortunately, regulatory processes are not always foolproof. This may mean that unsafe, defective products are occasionally distributed to retailers for sale.

When defective, potentially dangerous items reach a consumer’s home, serious accidents can occur. If a product’s defects cause it to malfunction, unsuspecting users can be severely injured and, in some cases, can even lose their lives.

Manufacturers are legally responsible for ensuring the safety of their products. In accordance with the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act, if a manufacturer knows one or more of its products may be defective and could cause physical harm to the people who use it, they are required to:

  • Report defects that could be reasonably expected to cause physical injuries to Health Canada and the product’s suppliers.
  • Prepare and maintain retailer documentation so that unsafe products can be traced back to their source and taken off the market.
  • Provide Health Canada with the findings of studies or tests proving that the product meets federal safety regulations.
  • And more

Manufacturers who fail to fulfill their obligations may be considered negligent. In fact, many injuries caused by defective products are a result of their manufacturer’s negligence. In product liability claims, negligence may 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

If negligence throughout a retail item’s production cycle results in a defective product’s release for public sale, the consequences can be extremely dangerous. If you have been injured by an unsafe product, our defective products lawyersserving Dieppe may be able to help you pursue financial compensation for damages you incurred as a result of your injuries.
