Saint John Defective Products Lawyer


Throughout the country, a series of thorough checks and balances are in place to ensure that the products that find their way into the home of consumers are safe to use. The Canada Consumer Product Safety Act (CCPSA) is intended to protect the public by addressing or preventing danger posed to human health by consumer products available for sale in the country. The CCPSA provides thorough guidelines and regulations for businesses or entities that:

  • Manufacture consumer products
  • Import consumer products into the country
  • Sell consumer products to the public
  • Advertise consumer products
  • Test consumer products
  • Package and/or label consumer products

The guidelines laid out in the CCPSA apply to a range of non-commercial goods and supplies, including domestic items (e.g. appliances, furniture, etc.) recreational items (e.g. children’s toys, games, etc.) and sports-related items (e.g. equipment, gear, etc.) and are intended to identify and address products that pose a possible danger to human health and safety.

Consumers may very well take for granted the regulatory processes to which an ordinary product may be subjected in order to make its way from production to store shelves and, ultimately, their homes. Generally speaking, consumers implicitly trust that, if used as intended and in accordance with any warnings or advertised precautions, the products they purchase will not cause them physical harm.

However, in rare circumstances, harmful, oftentimes defective products make their way through the distribution chain. When defective, potentially harmful items are sold to Saint John residents, often the error goes unnoticed until an unsuspecting consumer sustains serious, surprising injuries.

Many injuries caused by defective products are a 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 the manufacturer of a consumer product realizes that it has potentially harmful defects, in accordance with the CCPSA, they must take appropriate measures to report the danger to Health Canada and any suppliers that have distributed the product for sale, so that customers can be warned immediately 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 or wrongful deaths caused by their defective product.

If you purchased a defective, unsafe product that caused you to sustain injuries, you may be entitled to financial compensation. In these situations, our defective products lawyers serving Saint John may be able to file a civil claim against the negligent product manufacturer whose wrongful conduct caused you to be physically injured.
