Safe and effective products are essential for consumer confidence. Part of preserving this confidence is holding the designers and manufacturers of defective or dangerous products accountable for their negligence and the damage their products inflict on consumers.

At Howard Yegendorf & Associates in Ottawa, we are skilled product liability lawyers who have nearly 50 years of combined personal injury and wrongful death litigation experience. We understand the challenges injury victims face in Ontario and seek to level the playing field with insurance companies and other parties who are responsible for the injuries caused.

Product Liability Claims

Product liability refers to the liability of any or all parties involved in the manufacture and supply of a faulty product which caused damage, including:

  • Manufacturers
  • Wholesalers
  • Retailers

Products found containing inherent defects that cause harm to a consumer of the product or someone to whom the product was given may be the subject of a product liability action. Consumer products must additionally meet the requirement that they are reasonably fit for the purpose for which they are sold.

Types of Product Liability Claims

Three types of product liability claims may be sought:

  • Design defect
  • Manufacturer’s defect
  • Marketing defects, including failure in the duty to warn and ongoing duty to research and warn of subsequently discovered defects

Product liability claims can be litigated individually or as class action law suits. Class action claims are appropriate when multiple individuals are injured by the same product type and the litigation would be more efficient if the cases are consolidated.

Common Products Involving Product Liability Claims

Product liability claims typically fall under the following categories:

  • Dangerous chemicals and hazardous materials
  • Defective children’s products, including food, unsafe bedding, defective car seats and toys
  • Unsafe industrial and agricultural equipment
  • Dangerous pharmaceuticals and medical devices
  • Power tools, including chainsaws
  • Snow blowers and home appliances
  • Heaters and generators

We hold the designers and manufacturers of defective products accountable and seek the full financial recovery our clients are entitled to. Our firm can help you obtain full compensation for damages such as lost income, rehabilitation costs, home care and emotional trauma in personal injury claims involving defective products. We are particularly focused on obtaining favourable outcomes for victims of catastrophic injuries such as brain injuries, spinal cord injuries and fatal accidents.
