Serving All of British Columbia Call 1-888-404-5167

Burnaby Product Liability Lawyer

Preszler Injury Lawyers represents British Columbians who have been injured or killed by defective consumer goods, food products, toys, medications, medical devices, health supplements, and motor vehicles. Manufacturers owe a public standard of care to maintain the highest possible safety standards and to honestly represent the goods they make and sell.

Failure to do so is a serious offence that must be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Unfortunately, many cases of dangerous goods never come to light until dozens or more individuals have been harmed. Contact our product liability law firm for a free consultation to find out if you have sufficient grounds for a product liability lawsuit. Our clients pay no money upfront for legal services and only pay if compensation is recovered.

Damages in Product Liability Cases

If a consumer product injured you, you might be entitled to compensation for:

  • All related medical bills, including ambulance rides, hospital stays, surgeries, medication, and therapy
  • Lost wages and diminished future earning capacity
  • “Pain and suffering” (capped at $375,000)

If you lost a spouse or a parent due to a consumer product defect, you might receive financial assistance for:

  • Loss of care and guidance
  • Loss of companionship
  • Funeral and burial expenses
  • Unpaid medical bills
  • Loss of household income and services

In extremely rare cases of negligent and reckless conduct, punitive damages may be awarded. Though Canada awards a lower amount of punitive damages than our American neighbours, there have been past cases of punitive damages totalling $200,000, $400,000, or even $4.5 million. Our Burnaby product liability lawyers pursue maximum compensation whenever possible.

When to File A Product Liability Lawsuit 

The filing timeline of a product liability claim is very important. The government allows a two to six-year limitation period. Failure to file within this amount of time could bar your claim from court. Obtaining proof that a manufacturer willfully concealed information about a dangerous product is one way to get around a time-barred claim. As a rule, it is best to contact Burnaby product liability lawyers as soon as possible to begin assembling evidence well before your time runs out.

What A Product Liability Lawyer Does 

A product liability lawyer works with private investigators, local law enforcement, and court subpoenas to uncover evidence of wrongdoing. Even if you’re not 100% sure what happened or whether a product is, in fact, responsible for your injuries– we can take a closer look. We assemble the facts and find supporting witnesses and expert testimonials that bolster your claim for maximum compensation. Sometimes medical professionals or forensic economists are called upon for their expertise.

We’ll grill the opposing side during depositions, advocate your rights in court, and liaison with medical bill collectors, insurers, defence counsel, and others on your behalf. You only pay us a prearranged legal fee for these services if we secure compensation for your injuries. Call our product liability law firm in Burnaby for your free consultation today. We’re conveniently located at 4720 Kingsway, Suite 2600 in the Metrotown section of Burnaby.
