When defective, potentially dangerous non-commercial consumer products are released for sale to the general public, the people who purchase them can unwittingly put themselves in harm’s way. Defective products can cause unsuspecting consumers to sustain serious, life-threatening injuries and incur substantial financial losses.
Even though the companies that manufacture, import, sell, advertise, package, label, or test non-commercial consumer products are required to comply with national safety standards and practices mandated in the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act (CCPSA). These regulations are in place to protect consumers from potentially dangerous products. Unfortunately, sometimes products that fail to meet national safety standards are accidentally made available for sale. In most situations, manufacturers are unaware that a product has hazardous defects until it is too late and unsuspecting purchasers have already sustained injuries.
In product liability claims, at-fault manufacturers may be considered negligent for a variety of reasons. A manufacturer may be considered negligent if:
- The product was designed in a defective manner
- An error occurred during the manufacturing process
- The product’s safety testing was conducted incorrectly
- The product was mislabelled
- The product’s packaging and/or safety instructions did not adequately communicate risks associated with the product’s use
- The manufacturer failed to report the health hazard to Health Canada
- And possibly more
The negligence of product manufacturers can have dangerous, life-threatening repercussions. If their failure to abide by national safety protocols outlined in the CCPSA caused a consumer to sustain injuries, the negligent manufacturer might be liable for damages incurred by the injured party as a result.
