New Glasgow Defective Products Lawyer


Across the country, businesses that manufacture, import, sell, advertise, package, label, or test non-commercial consumer products must abide by the safety regulations mandated by the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act (CCPSA). The nationwide safety protocols and standards outlined in the CCPSA are designed to reduce the risk of injuries accidentally sustained by the people who purchase and use non-commercial consumer items.

While food and drugs are subject to a different set of safety guidelines and regulations, the protocols outlined in the CCPSA apply to a variety of products made available for public sale throughout the country. These products 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

If the companies that manufacture these products fail to fulfill their duty of care to their customers and defective products are made available for sale to the public, unsuspecting consumers can sustain serious– even fatal– injuries.  Accidents caused by defective products are often the result of their manufacturer’s negligence. In product liability claims, negligence could be linked to a number of actions, inactions, errors, omissions, or other forms of wrongful conduct throughout the manufacturing process. A manufacturer may be considered negligent if:

  • The product was designed in a defective manner
  • An error occurred during the manufacturing process
  • The product’s safety testing was conducted incorrectly
  • The product was mislabelled
  • The product’s packaging and/or safety instructions did not adequately communicate risks associated with the product’s use
  • The manufacturer failed to report the health hazard to Health Canada
  • And possibly more

As soon as a manufacturer learns that a potentially hazardous defective product has been released to the public for sale, in accordance with the CCPSA, they have an obligation to alert Health Canada about the risks associated with their product so that a nationwide recall can be issued. Failure to notify the proper channels upon learning of the hazards posed by their defective products could also be considered negligence.

If you were injured because of a defective product, you may be entitled to compensation from the negligent manufacturer whose wrongful conduct made it possible for you to sustain injuries.

Our defective products lawyers serving New Glasgow may be able to help you recover damages you have incurred, as well as damages you will incur in the future. These damages may include:

  • Medical expenses
  • Rehabilitation costs
  • Ongoing medical care/in-home care
  • Lost wages due to missed work
  • Loss of future earning capacity
  • Adjusted living expenses
  • Pain and suffering
  • And possibly more

By working with our New Glasgow defective products lawyers, you may be able to pursue a civil claim against the negligent manufacturer in order to recover compensation for the compensable injuries you sustained.
