Product Liability

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.

At Mackesy Smye, we help to ensure that victims of commercial negligence and their families receive the consideration they deserve. If your life has been impacted by a defective, expired or otherwise unsound product, our lawyers will provide the legal counsel and the representation you need to make certain that you are properly compensated by insurance companies, manufacturers or retailers.

Mackesy Syme specialise in product liability suits.
