The things we buy should be safe to use. There is no question about it. Appliances, furniture, recreational items, sports equipment, and other non-commercial consumer items should not harm the people who purchase them.
As a matter of fact, the companies responsible for these products are subject to strict, federally mandated safety regulations to ensure that unassuming consumers will not be injured by the items they design, manufacture, package, advertise, import, and sell. These regulations are put in place by the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act (CCPSA), and are intended to reduce the risks of harm to the health of the public at large.
Sadly, not all products that are released for sale in this country are safe to use, even in accordance with their accompanying safety instructions. When dangerous, defective, non-commercial consumer items are made available for sale to the general public, it is often the result of negligence somewhere in the chains of either production or distribution.
In the context of injury claims related to the use of hazardous, defective products, negligence can take on various forms. The manufacturers of these items could be considered negligent if they:
As soon as a manufacturer learns about hazards to human health associated with the product they have released for sale, they have a duty to report the issue to federal authorities so that a recall, advisory, and safety alert can be issued across the country. If they do not alert the public about the dangers involved with using their defective product, they could place more potential victims at risk of injury. This is another form of manufacturer negligence.
Depending on the circumstances, defective products could cost unsuspecting consumers their lives. Their use could also lead to serious injuries and drastic financial losses.
Being injured in a sudden, unexpected accident caused by a commonplace item that should have functioned properly can be a shocking, confusing, and overwhelming experience. It is often unclear who should be liable for resulting damages and where to turn to seek proper guidance.
