Nepean, Grimsby and Timmins Product Liability Lawyers

Our economy is one that is driven by commerce and a free market. But there are times when companies don’t fully consider the safety of the consumers who buy and use their products. Although our laws regulate this, there are times when negligence and carelessness will put consumers’ safety at risk and cause harm and injuries.

The Potential Risks of Consumer Products

Every year, consumers are injured or killed by hazardous or dangerous products here in Ontario. Manufacturers of these products have a legal responsibility to provide products that don’t pose a risk to their customers. When manufacturers fail to meet this responsibility, they often put their customers in danger. Manufacturing defects, design defects, and failures to warn are all ways in which a company can leave consumers exposed to harm.

    As a consumer, you have the right to rely on the safety of the products you purchase and use, however defective products make it into the marketplace each year. Their are laws that protect consumers from faulty and defective products. But it is often complicated to determine at what level of production or getting a product to market that liability falls. It may be

    • At the manufacturing level where a defect has occurred during the making, assembling or packaging of the product.
    • At the design level in the way the product was initially designed
    • At the marketing level where there was a lack of important information enabling a consumer to use the product safely.

    Because of this, bringing a product liability claim can be complicated since the points of liability can be found at the designer, manufacturer, distributor, supplier, marketer, wholesaler or even the retailer.  That is when it is important to have an experienced product liability lawyer on your side.
