If you used a product believing it was safe, were injured by it and now believe it was dangerous and unsafe, you may have a legal right to compensation for the losses and harm you experienced. Our lawyers can help you file a claim and guide you through the legal process.
Few injury cases carry more risk of confusion and complexity than product liability cases. For instance:
- Engineers, doctors and other experts are often needed to determine whether or not the product was defective and the source of the defect
- Legal complexities can arise in determining who is responsible for the injuries, especially since many products sold in Ontario are from overseas. The defendant in a dangerous product case can be a manufacturer, distributor, retailer or another party in the supply chain, and that party may be located in Canada, the US, China or elsewhere
- Product liability cases can be based on provincial or federal law, depending on the nature of the case and the item
