Riverview Defective Products Lawyer

When the manufacturers of non-commercial consumer products become aware of a defect in the items they sell that could potentially injure the people who have purchased it, they have a responsibility to take proactive measures to stop accidents from happening. A failure to take appropriate measures to reduce the risk of physical injuries may be considered negligence.

Negligence on the part of a product manufacturer can have serious consequences. No one anticipates that an item they have purchased in Riverview could cause them to sustain severe injuries or lose their lives in an accident. However, when a negligent product manufacturer allows unsafe, defective products to be made available for sale to the public, the lives of unsuspecting consumers can be changed forever.

If an everyday product is used according to its instructions, people should not be physically harmed. However, if a consumer uses the item they purchased in accordance with any pertinent, clearly articulated safety precautions and still sustains injuries, the negligence of its manufacturer may be to blame. In product liability claims, negligence could 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

Frequently, defective, potentially dangerous products go unnoticed until it is too late and an unfortunate, unsuspecting consumer becomes hurt. However, in accordance with national legislation, when product manufacturers become aware that a product is defective and 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 comply with the nation-wide regulations mandating the safe production and distribution of consumer products could cost consumers their lives.

Businesses that manufacture, import, sell, advertise, package, label, or test consumer products anywhere in the country are regulated by Health Canada.The safety measures outlined by the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act (CCPSA) apply to a number of non-commercial products, including:

  • 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

The safety regulations detailed in the CCPSA were created to help reduce the risk of harm to human health by identifying dangerous, defective products and preventing them from being sold to the public. Occasionally, though, defective products make their way onto the shelves of local stores, and into the homes of unsuspecting Riverview residents.
