Defective Consumer & Household Products
Toronto Product Liability Lawyers for Defective Consumer & Household Products
Most days, we might not take much notice of the countless household and consumer products that we use to make our lives easier. Unfortunately, when one of those products is faulty or malfunctions, it can cause property damage or serious personal injury.
If there was some sort of defect in the design or manufacture of a product that caused your injury, the person(s) or organization responsible for the defect may be liable to pay you compensation. At Jasmine Daya & Co. in Toronto, we have a team of dedicated product liability lawyers who can help you pursue compensation from the designer, manufacturer, distributor or retailer of a defective product.
Commonly Defective Products and Goods
Any household product could be defective, but a handful of product categories give rise to the majority of product liability claims. The most common culprits include:
- Faulty fire alarms
- Home and kitchen appliances
- Power tools
- Consumer appliances and computers
- Heaters and electric blankets
- Personal care appliances, such as hair straighteners and electric razors
What Laws Apply if a Household Product Malfunctions?
In Ontario, consumer products are guaranteed to be fit for their intended purpose, based on the conditions and warranties made about the product at the time of sale. The Sale of Goods Act and Consumer Protection Act both contain provisions to protect consumers in the event of defective or faulty items.
In addition to legislation, anyone that has been injured by a defective product may be able to bring a civil lawsuit against the negligent party or organization. You may be able to recover compensation for medical expenses, lost income and working capacity, or future treatment and caregiving costs.
