Any time that you consume a food item, purchase something from a store, or are preparing for any type of medical treatment or surgery, you have an expectation that you are being given food or an item that is up to a certain standard.
This means that, if you consume food that harms you, purchase something that is defective, or are given a medical device or drug that doesn’t do what it’s supposed to, you may have grounds for legal action.
At Stephens & Holman, our Vancouver defective product lawyers can help you determine if you have grounds to file a lawsuit because of your suffering. A defective product lawsuit can be filed in any of the following situations:
- Purchased food was contaminated and caused you or your family members illness
- A product was defective and either didn’t work properly or caused injury
- A drug was prescribed that turned out to cause harm rather than healing
- A medical device was used on you or a loved one or implanted within you or a loved one that turned out to be defective and caused pain, suffering, illness, or even wrongful death
Any time that any of these situations occur, our lawyers can help you determine if you have legal recourse. If so, we can help you pursue a claim for damages to cover your suffering, out of pocket expenses, loss of income, and rehabilitation.
