You may purchase a product with the hope that it will do nothing but improve your life. This is why it is a great tragedy when a product does the exact opposite. That is, if a product is defective, it may cause you to incur serious injuries and damages. Read on to discover what injuries are commonly caused by a defective product and how a seasoned Toronto product liability lawyer at Merricks Law Group, P.A. can help you understand your rights to legal action.

What are common injuries caused by a defective product?

Despite the impressive technology and innovation that Ontario has continually harvested, instances of defective products may still occur. And when they do, the aftermath can be detrimental to the affected consumer’s physical health and overall quality of life. Without further ado, examples of injuries that are commonly caused by defective products are as follows:

  • Organ damage from a defective drug (i.e., over-the-counter medicine).
  • Head and neck injuries from a defective automobile (i.e., a car).
  • Burns from a defective household appliance (i.e., a toaster oven).
  • Broken bones from defective furniture (i.e., a chair).
  • Choking from small parts of a product (i.e., children’s toys).

Do I have a right to sue?

The short answer is, yes, you may sue a business if you received injuries and damages from the defects existing in their products. More specifically, this is so long as you believe that such an accident was a reasonably foreseeable manner if the business fulfilled its duty of care.

You must direct your product liability claim toward the correct party. That is, you may determine that a product designer is the negligent party at hand. This may be true if a designer failed to ensure that the product’s design was safe for public use. With this, you may argue that there was a safer way to have designed the product that was neither economically infeasible nor did it hinder its usability.

Or, you may conclude that a negligent product manufacturer is to blame for your accident. This may apply if the manufacturer failed to ensure that the product’s blueprints were not precisely followed. With this, you may have to prove that a manufacturer diverted from the blueprints in an attempt to eliminate costs, save time, and overall cut corners.

Otherwise, you may place your claim against the business that has this item in its product line. You may form the argument that the business failed to warn about the potential hazards on its written label.

Whatever your case may be, you must make a valiant effort toward kickstarting your personal injury claim today. Reach out to a competent Ontario personal injury lawyer from Merricks Law Group, P.A. to learn how to get started.
