Nobody expects to sustain injuries while using a commonplace household item. Consumers in Port Hawkesbury take for granted the fact that, in order for products to make their way through the supply and distribution chains, onto the shelves of local retailers, and into their homes, these items must undergo rigorous safety tests to ensure that they comply with nationwide product safety standards and will not cause the people who purchase them any physical harm. However, on certain occasions, defective, potentially dangerous products could make their way through the supply chain and into the hands of unsuspecting consumers.
When defective products injure the people who purchase them and use them in accordance with their included safety instructions, oftentimes the injurious accident is the result of the product’s manufacturer’s negligence.
If you were injured by a defective product, your accident may have been the result of negligence on the part of the product’s manufacturer. In product liability claims, negligence could be 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
All businesses throughout the country that manufacture, import, sell, advertise, package, label, and test non-commercial consumer products are required to comply with the safety regulations and guidelines outlined in the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act (CCPSA). The safety regulations mandated by the CCPSA exist so that consumers who purchase and use non-commercial items will not be at risk of sustaining physical injuries. However, if negligence occurs anywhere throughout the process of designing, assembling, packaging, advertising, and distributing the item, the product could be rendered defective and potentially hazardous to human health.
