If you’ve been the victim of injury due to a defective or dangerous product, you have recourse. A product recall lawsuit can help you gain compensation for your injuries and send a clear message to negligent manufacturers who put innocent consumers’ lives in danger.
Courts in BC have held that manufacturers, sellers, and distributors may be held strictly liable (fault need not be shown) for any injury caused by their defective or unsafe products. If you’ve been injured by an unsafe product, you can file a product recall lawsuit that helps gain compensation for the cost of treatment, lost wages, future medical care, and even emotional distress. And punitive damages can also be pursued, teaching manufacturers a valuable lesson and deterring future negligent behaviour.
If you believe that you or someone you know is entitled to damages relating to an unsafe drug or product, or a product or drug that has been recalled, do not hesitate in contacting Vancouver personal injury lawyer Scott Parks to discuss your case free of charge.
