DEFECTIVE PRODUCT CLAIMS
Defective or dangerous products are the cause of thousands of injuries every year in Canada. The law in British Columbia provides protection for consumers and others who are seriously injured by dangerous or defective products. In the law of negligence, there is a standard of care owed to you by the manufacturer, distributor, designer, or retailer to ensure that they do not allow a defective and dangerous product into the hands of consumers.
Defective or dangerous products are those manufactured products that do not meet the ordinary, safe expectation of their users. Use or operation of such products can result in serious personal injury or death. Defects or dangerous elements can arise in many ways such as design flaws, mistakes in the manufacturing process or inappropriate materials in the composition of the product. Some examples include electronic devices or appliances that overheat and combust, mechanical or other failure in vehicles and recently, unsafe toy and food products. Many people are not aware of their rights, nor of their remedies in the event a serious injury or death of a loved one results from the use of a defective or dangerous product.
