How a Product Liability Lawyer Can Help 

A product liability claim in Ontario may require you to seek financial compensation from a powerful adversary, such as a major manufacturer that is backed by a large insurance corporation and an aggressive legal team. The best way to protect yourself during the legal process is by hiring an attorney to represent you. 

A product liability lawyer can benefit you in numerous ways. Your lawyer can investigate the incident to search for evidence to support your claim, such as proof that the product that injured you contained a dangerous defect. Then, your lawyer can file a lawsuit on your behalf against one or more parties in pursuit of maximum financial compensation.  

A lawyer can hire qualified experts to clarify confusing subjects to strengthen your case, such as product manufacturing safety requirements. You can count on an attorney to do what it takes to achieve the best possible case results for you, including taking your product liability claim to trial in Ontario, if necessary.

What Is a Product Liability Claim?

Federal and state laws protect consumers by promoting the safety of goods and products. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is a government agency in charge of enforcing these rules and recalling products that do not comply with required safety standards and may threaten public health or safety.

A product liability claim is a type of civil lawsuit that can be filed by an injured consumer after a harmful incident involving a defective or dangerous product. If a product contains a defect and inflicts injury on a consumer, the manufacturing company or distributor can be held strictly liable, meaning financially responsible for the incident without requiring proof of negligence.

Negligence, otherwise known as the failure to use reasonable care, is the foundation for most personal injury cases in California. A strict product liability claim, however, does not require a consumer to prove that a manufacturer was negligent in failing to create a safe product. It is enough to show that the item contained a defect and caused the injury in question.

Three Types of Product Defects 

A strict product liability claim in California typically requires evidence of one of three main types of defects:

  1. Design flaw: a dangerous inherent product design that makes it unreasonably risky for consumers to use.
  2. Manufacturing mistake: safety problems that arise during the manufacture of a product that makes it unsafe even if used as the manufacturer intended.
  3. Marketing error: the failure of a manufacturer to meet its duty to warn consumers of known potential dangers associated with using a product.

If the product that injured you contained one of these defects, you are most likely eligible for compensation through a strict product liability suit in Ontario.

Common Defective and Dangerous Consumer Products

Every year, thousands of dangerous consumer products and motor vehicles get recalled due to safety issues. A recall means that an item has been removed from shelves or is no longer being distributed to consumers due to known or foreseeable injury risks.

Common examples include:

  • Airbags 
  • Automobiles and automotive parts
  • Bicycles  
  • Children’s products
  • Clothing
  • Cosmetics 
  • E-scooters
  • Electronics
  • Food and beverages
  • Furniture
  • Household chemicals and appliances
  • Medical devices
  • Personal care products
  • Power tools and industrial equipment
  • Prescription drugs
  • Recreational vehicles
  • Seat belts
  • Vapes and e-cigarettes

If any type of product injures you or a loved one in Ontario, you may be eligible for financial compensation from the manufacturing company. Other liable parties can include a product distributor, designer, engineer, part manufacturer, retailer and seller.

Defective Products Can Cause Serious Injuries 

A defective product can cause severe and irreversible injuries. Unsuspecting victims can suffer injuries from the item itself or the item’s failure to perform in the way that it should, such as an airbag that fails to deploy in a car accident.

 Injuries that can be caused by a defective product include:

If you get injured by a defective product, seek medical care immediately. Keep the product and all of its original packaging. Contact the manufacturer of the item to report the incident. Before you file an insurance claim, however, contact an attorney for advice.

Financial Compensation Available

Filing a product liability claim for a defective item that injured you could result in monetary damages being paid by the manufacturer for your related losses.  

Various types of economic and noneconomic damages may be available, such as: 

  • Past and future medical bills
  • Lost wages and lost future capacity to earn
  • Permanent disfigurement or disability
  • Pain and suffering
  • Property damage
  • Wrongful death damages, in a fatal injury case

Discuss the potential value of your product liability claim with one of our attorneys before accepting a settlement. We will make sure a manufacturer and its insurance company do not take advantage of you.
