Wolfville Defective Products Lawyer


Across the country, all businesses that manufacture, import, sell, advertise, package, label, and test non-commercial consumer products are required to comply with the safety regulations and guidelines outlined in the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act (CCPSA). Companies responsible for the production of foods and drugs are subject to different regulations. The CCPSA legislates safety measures and protocols for businesses focusing on:

  • 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 mandated in the CCPSA exist so that consumers who purchase and use non-commercial items will not be at risk of sustaining physical injuries. However, if negligence occurs anywhere throughout the process of designing, assembling, packaging, advertising, and distributing the item, the product could be rendered defective. If so, bringing the item home from the store and using it could be dangerous. Unsuspecting consumers who purchase defective products could be severely injured in sudden, unexpected accidents.

Any number of wrongful actions throughout a product’s manufacturing and distribution cycles could lead to injury-causing accidents after it has been sold to the public. Products could be designed in a defective manner. An error in the manufacturing process could render the product defective and potentially dangerous for use. Testing of the product’s safety could be conducted improperly. A product’s safety instructions, labeling, packaging, or advertising could fail to sufficiently communicate the risks associated with the product’s improper use. These, and other violations of the safety protocols legislated by the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act (CCPSA) could be considered negligence.

Furthermore, if a manufacturer learns about a potentially harmful defect associated with a product they have distributed, they have an obligation to alert Health Canada so that a recall can be triggered nationwide. Failure to inform the authorities about hazardous defects in their products could also be considered negligence.

If you used an item in accordance with its included safety instructions but sustained injuries as a result, you may be able to recover compensation from the negligent manufacturer whose wrongful actions allowed this accident to occur. Our defective products lawyers serving Wolfville may be able to provide you with critical legal assistance.

By pursuing a claim against the negligent product manufacturer, our Wolfville defective products lawyers may be able to help you recover damages you have incurred or will incur in the future because of the injuries you sustained. These damages may include:
