Do I Have a Defective Product Case?

Being hurt by a defective product doesn’t necessarily mean you have a case. However, if the product was defective due to negligence from the manufacturer or designer, you should speak with a lawyer about the potential for a claim. 

Negligence in Defective Product Cases

A defective product claim hinges on your ability to prove the at-fault party’s negligence. You must prove that the party responsible for designing or manufacturing the product had a duty to use reasonable care, breached that duty, and sold an unsafe product that led to your injury.

Successfully proving negligence is no small task. Donnelly Murphy Lawyers know the ins and outs of defective product law and can explain how they apply to your case.

How Long Do I Have to File a Defective Product Lawsuit in Ontario?

The limitation period in Ontario allows up to two years to file a defective product lawsuit after an injury. However, there are some exceptions to this general rule, so it is essential to contact a defective product lawyer right away after an injury. If you miss the deadline, your claim may be dismissed, and you won’t be able to recover any damages.

 What Is Compensated in a Defective Product Claim?

You can receive compensation for several damages after a defective product injury. This includes:

  • Economic damages for past and future medical expenses, lost wages, and loss of earning potential
  • Non-economic damages for pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, and loss of consortium
  • Wrongful death damages if a defective product caused the death of a loved one

Your defective product lawyer will work with you to determine the maximum value of your claim by working with accountants and medical experts.

Goderich Defective Product Claims We Handle

Defective product claims generally fall into three categories:

  • Design Defect: the design of the product is flawed or unsound
  • Manufacturing Defect: a fault in the manufacturing process, such as defective materials, creates an unsafe product
  • Marketing Defect: the product’s marketing is misleading, mislabeled, or fails to provide adequate instructions or safety warnings

If you or a loved one were injured due to any of these types of product defects, reach out to Donnelly Murphy Lawyers right away.

Ontario Defective Product Laws

The burden of proof in defective product claims lies with the claimant — this means you must demonstrate the product’s defectiveness and how the defect caused your injuries and damages.

Common federal laws cited in defective product cases include the Consumer Product Safety Act, Hazardous Products Act, and the Consumer Packaging and Labelling Act. These laws establish clear standards for product safety and require companies, sellers, or distributors of defective products to report faulty products, packaging, and inadequate instructions or labels.

Your defective product lawyer will use these laws to help prove the connection between the product and how it harmed you.
