Ontario consumers have the right to expect safe and reliable results from the products or services that they purchase. In order to conduct business in this province, manufacturers and retailers are required to take all reasonable precautions against the distribution and sale of defective, inadequate or otherwise dangerous merchandise.
Unfortunately, in a typical year, thousands of Greater Hamilton, South Western Ontario Area residents suffer the effects of commercial negligence. Such negligence can cause anything from minor (or major) property damage to serious injury and even wrongful death.
Such incidents can create havoc, both in economic and personal terms. Many victims of product liability negligence find themselves forced to disburse large sums of money to repair their homes or recuperate from an injury. Often, these victims may be left feeling powerless to obtain compensation for their misfortunes.
