Shelburne Defective Products Lawyer


The use of everyday household products, recreational items, and sports equipment should not cause people to sustain physical injuries. Indeed, if used correctly and in accordance with included safety instructions, the products made available for sale to consumers across the country should be harmful to human health.

That is because all businesses throughout the country that manufacture, import, sell, advertise, package, label, and test non-commercial consumer products are required to abide by the safety regulations mandated by the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act (CCPSA). These nationally recognized safety standards and protocols are designed to ensure that products available to consumers for purchase will not cause anyone physical harm.

Unfortunately, throughout a product’s lifetime from design to distribution, there are many opportunities for a party or entity’s negligence to render the item defective and potentially hazardous for use by consumers. When product manufacturers fail to abide by the safety rules and regulations legislated by the CCPSA, dangerous, defective products could make their way through the chain of production, onto the shelves of retailers, and into the homes of unsuspecting consumers where severe accidents with severe consequences could take place.

In most cases, when defective products are released for sale to the general public, their manufacturers are unaware about the risks associated with their products’ use until multiple injuries have been sustained or, tragically, until lives have been lost in accidents caused by the product’s defects. As soon as a manufacturer becomes aware of a potentially injurious side effect of their product’s use, they have a duty to alert Health Canada so that a nationwide recall can be issued and the product’s sales can be terminated. Failure to take appropriate measures to warn the public about a defective product could be considered negligence.

In addition to failing to notify the proper authorities about a defective product, manufacturers may be considered negligent for a variety of reasons. In premises liability claims, negligence is often the result of:

  • 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
