Consumer Product Liability Class Actions
Consumer products are widely distributed. When they are defective, many people can be adversely affected.
Products at issue cover a wide range of items, including home appliances, plumbing and electrical fixtures, consumer electronics, toys, and sports equipment.
Product Liability Lawsuits In Ontario
Product liability cases are particularly appropriate for class action proceedings. A successful product liability claim requires expert testimony and detailed evidence, both of which are financially beyond the reach of the average person.
When a single product is found to be defective, the case can usually proceed as a class action; in these cases, common proof of harm is more readily established. In other words, one or two people can effectively represent the entire class by giving evidence of their situation.
