When they don’t meet the required standard, Miskin Law gets involved. We serve residents of Ontario with sound legal advice concerning these terrible situations. If you or a loved one has been hurt due to a product defect or recall, get in touch with our team. Our offices are located in Peterborough, Lindsay, and Oshawa.

What Are the Types of Product Liability Claims?

There are three types of defects that may cause injury, giving rise to what is known as “product liability”:

  • Defects in design
  • Defects in manufacturing
  • Defects in marketing, such as errors in labeling, instructions or safety warnings

There is both federal and provincial legislation relating to product liability. However, consumers can also make a claim in court based on negligence, breach of contractual warranty or breach of statutory warranty. To succeed, you’ll need to prove that a product was unreasonably dangerous and caused your injury.

At Miskin Law, we know that navigating these complex situations is nothing short of overwhelming. Thankfully, our compassionate team is here to help you understand your circumstances and how to build a strong case. We’ll be with you every step of the way.

  • Pain and suffering

  • Lost earning capacity
  • Past and future medical expenses
  • Punitive damages
