If used correctly in accordance with any pertinent instructions or clearly-stated safety guidelines, no one should be harmed by the products they use. That is because consumer products manufactured, imported, sold, advertised, packaged, labeled, and tested throughout the country are subject to safety regulations mandated by the federal government. Businesses must comply with the safety measures outlined by the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act (CCPSA) to protect the health and safety of consumers.
Unfortunately, despite the rigorous safety standards to which consumer products sold throughout the country are held, occasionally defective products are made available for public sale. If the product’s defects render it unsafe or dangerous, unsuspecting consumers who buy and use the defective product could be seriously injured.
Products could be designed in a defective manner. An error in the manufacturing process could result in defects. Testing of the product’s safety could be conducted improperly. Furthermore, a product’s safety instructions, labeling, packaging, or advertising could fail to sufficiently communicate the risks associated with the product’s improper use. When any of these errors occur, seemingly harmless products could change the course of an innocent consumer’s life, causing them to sustain severe injuries or even lose their lives. All-too often, when errors in the manufacturing process occur, the people responsible for their product’s safety are unaware of the dangerous defects until it is too late and multiple consumers have been harmed.
When the proper use of everyday products causes a consumer to sustain serious injuries, it can be difficult for them to know which actions to take next, or where to turn for accountability. Sustaining serious injuries can be an expensive process, and injured accident victims frequently incur substantial financial losses as a result of their injuries.
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 accordance with national legislation, when product manufacturers become aware that one of their products is unsafe for use by the public, they have a responsibility to alert Health Canada so that a product recall can be issued. A failure to take appropriate measures to reduce the risk of physical injuries may be considered negligence.
