Defective Product lnjuries
Many people are seriously injured or killed each year in Ontario by products which are defective. A manufacturer or distributor of a product may be liable if its product is defective and injures someone.
Product liability claims can be complex. Expert evidence, often from engineers, is usually required to establish that a product was defective.
If you have been injured as the result of a defective product, you can claim damages for:
* Pain, suffering and loss of enjoyment of life
* Loss of income or loss of earning capacity.
* Housekeeping and home maintenance expenses.
* Health care expenses.
* the loss sustained by family members who are entitled to sue under the Family Law Act
