Chairs have become an essential part of everyday life. You could sit in chairs when you go out to eat, when you eat dinner at home, when you are waiting for an appointment, and when you are working. Most people trust that the chairs that they sit in are safe. Unfortunately, however, many people suffer accidents and a variety of injuries because of chairs that suddenly break. If you or a member of your family suffered a chair accident, you must speak with a broken chair injury lawyer who has experience in collapsing chair cases. You must contact the attorneys at Kenmore Law Group as soon as possible. Our attorneys have many years of experience helping the victims of chair accidents recover the compensation that they deserve.

Common Injuries Caused by Collapsing Chairs

If you fell from a chair, you likely suffered a variety of injuries. If you fell from the chair or the chair broke under you, you likely sustained a series of injuries. Some of the most common injuries that could be suffered as a result of a broken or collapsing chair include the following:

  • Concussions and other head injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Broken hip
  • Broken arm
  • Broken legs
  • Back injuries
  • Neck injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Fractured wrists
  • Fractured ankles
  • Lacerations
  • Surface injuries (cuts, scrapes, and bruises)

Whether the fall from the chair caused you to hit your head and suffer a concussion or you cut your finger on a broken chair, you could sue for your injuries. Hitting your head against the floor, causing a concussion, could have devastating effects on your health and result in a variety of medical expenses. Regardless of the types of injuries you suffered, you must remember that you have the right to sue the parties liable.

Broken Chairs and Liability

Chairs can break for a variety of reasons. For example, if the chair was poorly maintained, it could break and cause harm. Likewise, if a chair was not assembled properly, it could break and cause injuries. The question here is who is liable? Who should have taken appropriate measures to prevent your accident? Liability is based on negligence. Negligence consists of four elements: duty, breach, cause, and harm. In businesses, for example, business-owners have the duty to keep their premises safe for customers. If you have an office job, your boss has the duty to keep the office free from hazards. When someone with a duty of care fails to keep the premises safe, they are breaching their duty of care. Examples of common breaches of duty include failing to repair broken chairs or failing to inspect chairs. A breach of duty could cause an accident and lead to injuries. The same applies to defective products. Companies have a duty to provide their consumers with products that are safe to use. If they make a defective product available for purchase, they could be found liable for any injuries sustained. For more information about who is liable for your chair accident, you must contact our law firm as soon as possible.

Can I Sue if a Chair Broke and I Got Injured?

Yes, you can sue if a chair broke and you got injured. However, your right to sue depends on how the chair broke. Did you jump into the chair? If so, you might not be eligible to sue because your reckless actions resulted in the broken chair and your injuries. Did the chair break because it was not assembled properly? Did you fall off the chair because someone failed to identify and address a hazard? If the seat broke and you suffered injuries because of a party’s negligent actions, you have the right to sue. You must contact an experienced chair collapse injury lawyer in Los Angeles, CA as soon as possible.

Can I Sue Over a Chair that Broke Under Me and Got Me Injured?

Yes, you can sue if a chair broke under you and you got injured. If a broken bench caused your fall or a chair broke as you sat on it, you could sue. Depending on the details of your claim, you can sue the chair manufacturer for providing a defective chair or you could sue the store where the chair was located. As discussed above, a party could have strict liability if their negligence caused your injuries. Whether you were injured because of a broken office chair or because of a broken chair in a waiting room, you could sue. For more information about your right to sue after suffering injuries because of a broken chair, you must contact our law firm as soon as possible.
