Ottawa Product Liability Lawyers
Safe and reliable products are essential for consumer confidence. A big part of maintaining consumer confidence is holding designers and manufacturers of defective or dangerous products accountable for their negligence and the damage their products inflict on consumers. Manufacturers have an obligation to consumers to make their products safe.
When a person is injured due to manufacturer negligence, they may be entitled to compensation for their injuries. At Tierney Stauffer LLP, our personal injury law team will advise you of your rights if you’ve been injured by a faulty product and will seek to obtain the compensation necessary for your immediate and long-term needs.
Defective Consumer & Household Products
Although Ontario has laws that provide minimum protection to consumers, serious injuries and even deaths can and do occur from defective consumer and household products sold in Ontario. As consumers, we expect to rely on the items we purchase for everyday use in our homes and offices. However, many products pose dangers of which people are completely unaware. Even the most common, everyday item can be potentially hazardous.
Dangerous or Defective Toys & Children’s Products
Parents who purchase children’s toys, cribs and other products trust that they have been tested to meet rigorous safety standards. Although it is not uncommon, it is nevertheless very upsetting for parents to see their children injured by defective toys and products, ingesting small toy parts or getting poisoned by lead and other harmful toxins in toys. By the time a recall happens, children may have already been injured by a company’s negligent design.
Dangerous Food Products
Food producers have a legal and ethical responsibility to ensure that contaminated or dangerous food items do not make it to store shelves where they can pose a serious risk of harm to consumers. Unfortunately, contaminated food products often end up in consumers’ hands, leading to widespread recalls, reports of illness and injury, and sometimes even death.
Dangerous or Defective Tools
Construction workers often use highly dangerous tools and equipment, such as cranes, bulldozers, scaffolding, ladders, nail guns, welding torches, drills and saws. The risk of injury can be extremely high, especially when manufacturers fail to take reasonable steps to protect workers’ safety. If you or someone you care about has been injured on a construction site due to a defective tool, you need an experienced product liability lawyer by your side protecting your rights.
