Every year throughout cities Columbia such as Port Coquitlam, Port Moody, Richmond, and other areas throughout B.C. countless adults and children die or are seriously injured by a dangerous, defective, or hazardous product. With the advent of computers and the internet, we have witnessed ongoing growth in the global marketplace. This has resulted in the manufacture of increasingly more consumer goods imported into Canada from offshore locations.
Based on the increase in product liability cases the Barapp Law Firm team of legal experts understands how products that are manufactured overseas don’t always meet Canadian safety standards. Furthermore, the manufacturing and quality standards of some foreign countries are well below what Canadians consider to be safe for consumer use. There have been numerous personal injury claims and recalls that prove this to be true.
Products that are deemed as defective or dangerous are those manufactured consumer items that fail to meet the reasonable and safe expectations of the consumer. Fatalities and serious injuries can result and may be attributed to design flaws, manufacturing error, and other similar defects. Examples of defective products include:
Appliances That Combust Due to Overheating
Hazardous Children’s Toys
Vehicle Mechanical Failure
