Product Liability Lawyer in Banff, Beaumont, and Chestermere
Thousands of Canadians are injured on an annual basis by using products with design or manufacturing flaws. Personal injury claims that stem from product liability accidents are especially disturbing because we as consumers assume that certain consumer goods are safe to use. If you’ve recently been injured by a product that you assumed was safe to use, you could be entitled to compensation. The BEAB Personal Injury Lawyer firm can help Banff, Beaumont, and Chestermere consumers that want to file a defective product claim and need legal representation.
What is Product Liability?
When a personal injury lawyer refers to or uses the phrase “product liability”, it’s just their way of saying that the designer, manufacturer, or seller of a defective product could be held responsible if you used it and were injured in the process. Furthermore, the court may order the designer, manufacturer, and/or seller to compensate your for damages and your pain and suffering. If you feel you have a product liability claim, an injury lawyer can evaluate your case and determine what it’s worth.
Although the personal injury laws that apply to defective products may vary slightly from one province to the next, you are required to prove the following elements in order for the BEAB Personal Injury Lawyer team to win your case:
You can produce evidence that the product is defective
You followed the directions for use and used it as it was intended to be used
You sustained injuries and/or suffered financial losses
You were injured because the product is defective
Proving liability can be difficult without the legal assistance of an experienced personal injury lawyer. It also increases your chances of getting a fair and reasonable settlement and ensures that your rights will be protected during the legal process.
