Fredericton Defective Products Lawyer


When Fredericton residents purchase products from local retailers or online stores, they may take for granted that, in order for that product to be cleared for sale, it must have undergone a series of rigorous checks and balances. The regulatory processes are in place to ensure that consumer products sold throughout the country are safe to use. Most consumers assume that, if they use their products for their intended purposes and in accordance with advertised safety precautions, their newly purchased items will not cause them any physical harm.

That said, on rare occasions, defective products that have the potential to cause physical injuries make their way into stores, and into the homes of unsuspecting consumers. When potentially harmful items are sold to Fredericton residents, the error may go unnoticed until someone sustains serious injuries.

Injuries caused by defective products may be the 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 you purchased a defective, unsafe product that caused you to sustain injuries, our defective products lawyers serving Fredericton may be able to help you recover financial compensation. By filing a civil claim against the negligent product manufacturer whose wrongful conduct caused you to be physically injured, our Fredericton defective product lawyers may be able to help you recover damages you sustained because of your injuries.

Legislation outlined by Health Canada provides safety guidelines to manufacturers or businesses that manufacture, import, sell, advertise, package, label, or test consumer products within the country. The Canada Consumer Product Safety Act (CCPSA) applies to non-commercial goods and supplies, such as:

  • Domestic items (e.g. appliances, furniture, etc.)
  • Recreational items (e.g. children’s toys, games, etc.)
  • Sport-related items (e.g. equipment, gear, etc.)
  • And possibly more

The CCPSA  is intended to protect the public by addressing dangers that consumer products may pose to human health, and preventing physical injuries from occurring. In accordance with the CCPSA, if a manufacturer realizes their consumer product has potentially dangerous defects, they must take reasonable action to report the hazard to Health Canada, as well as any suppliers that have distributed the product for sale. That way, customers can be warned about their defective item, and a recall on the product can be issued.

Failing to take thorough, immediate safety precautions to safeguard the public from the dangerous product they have manufactured may constitute negligence. Negligent manufacturers may be liable for damages arising from injuries caused by their defective product.
