Toronto Product Liability Lawyers
Product liability litigation in Canada is a complex and ever-changing landscape. When a defective product reaches the hands of the consumer and causes injury, the entity responsible for such negligence could be anyone in the distribution chain, from the manufacturer to the product designer. The root cause of dangerous products usually stems from three areas: a manufacturer defect, a design defect, or a lack of proper warnings and directions that demonstrate safe use of the product. Defective products are generally borne out of negligence or a careless party failing to exercise the reasonable standard of care when handling the product. In serious cases, faulty products may cause serious injury or disability to anyone who uses them.
When a defective product has caused injury to you or a member of your family, it can be incredibly distressing. It is especially frustrating if you later learn that such an ordeal could have been prevented if certain parties had not acted negligently. At Mazin & Associates, PC, our Toronto product liability lawyers have a unique understanding of Canada’s product liability laws. We advocate on behalf of faulty product victims, and have fought this battle for years. We can use our vast array of knowledge and resources to identify manufacturer mistakes and hold the responsible parties accountable.
Types of Product Liability
There are a variety of factors to take into consideration when addressing product liability. The existence of a faulty product is not enough to warrant litigation. We must also prove that a particular product defect caused your injuries. Product defect can be attributed to a range of areas, including:
- Defective household products
- Toxic food products and containers
- Dangerous childcare products and toys
- Dangerous drugs
- Defective vehicles
- Manufacturing defects
- Design defects
To make a claim against a defective product, you additionally may have to prove that you were not mishandling or misusing the product in a way that would cause injury or negative side effects.
