Product Liability

You Have A Right To Expect That Products Are Safe

Manufacturers of consumer products, pharmaceuticals and medical devices have a responsibility to ensure what they offer to the public is safe. As a consumer or patient, you should be able to trust the assertions made by the manufacturer that a product is free of defects or that the risks of use are only those identified on the product label. Unfortunately, you cannot always trust the promises made by manufacturers. When you have been hurt by a defective product, you can take legal action.

MacGillivray Injury and Insurance Law stands up for people throughout Atlantic Canada who have suffered severe injury as a result of product defects. We are your advocates when you need someone to stand with you, and we work to get you the results you need to recover from injury.


Product liability claims are technically complicated since an in-depth understanding of how a product works is a key component to any successful claim. At MacGillivray Injury and Insurance Law, our product liability lawyers across Atlantic Canada have pursued cases to the provincial Court of Appeal using their legal knowledge and the advice and testimony of experts in each step of the process.

If you’ve been harmed by a defective product, we can provide the information and guidance to help you determine your next steps. Contact us to set up a free consultation with one of our lawyers. We work on a contingency fee basis, which means that you do not pay anything until we win your claim. We have offices in Halifax, St. John’s, and New Glasgow, and we will arrange phone intakes and house calls for people across the rest of Nova Scotia, Newfoundland & Labrador, New Brunswick, and Prince Edward Island who cannot travel to one of our offices.

When you choose MacGillivray Law to represent you, you can rest assured we will do what it takes to build the strongest case on your behalf.
