    Injured by Falling off a Chair – Accident Injury Lawyer

    Injured by Falling off a Chair - Accident Injury Lawyer

    A chair is an object we use on a daily basis, and it’s hard to imagine these things as a source of danger. However, accidents involving chairs are very common, and many of these incidents are due to a defect with the chair that makes it wobbly or uneven. People can also be injured from the chair seat being too slick, usually from worn upholstery on seat cushions. Another possibility is that the floor underneath the chair was too slippery, which caused it to slide out from the user trying to sit down or get up from the chair.

    People’s homes, job sites, hotels, restaurants, and furniture stores are just some of the places where you can fall from a chair that is unsafe, either from a pre-existing defect or failure to maintain the chair. When these accidents are due to someone else’s negligence, you may have grounds to sue the responsible individual for monetary compensation. However, the legal process for an accident claim can be complicated, so it’s best to consult a chair accident lawsuit attorney as soon as possible. To speak with an experienced personal injury lawyer in the Los Angeles area, contact the offices of Kenmore Law Group.

    Liability for an Unsafe Chair Accident

    Even if it’s clear that you were injured from an unstable chair, you may still have questions about who you can sue for the injuries you’ve suffered. If you were injured on someone else’s property, you would most likely have a case against the property owner based on the concept of premises liability. This law holds owners responsible for injuries that are caused by a dangerous condition on their property.

    On the other hand, it’s possible that the problems with the chair were caused by the manufacturer or seller. Design flaws, damage to the product before it was sold, and many other issues can lead to serious defects in a chair. Thus, a product liability lawsuit may be the way to go, depending on the exact cause of your accident.

    No matter who is liable for your accident, immediate medical attention is essential, as there are many injuries that you can sustain if you fall off a chair. Take a look at just some of the health conditions that are associated with these incidents:

    • Broken nose (and damage to other facial bones)
    • Concussion and other brain injuries
    • Tailbone fracture
    • Fractures in the ribs, arms, and legs
    • Knee dislocation
    • Hip fracture
    • Soft tissue injuries – twisting or tearing of ligaments, tendons, and muscles
    • Deep cuts, leading to permanent scars and/or infections
    • Neck and spinal cord damage
    • Paralysis

    Once you have seen a doctor, please give us a call and speak to a lawyer with experience in fall accident injuries involving chairs. We will take immediate action on your case and fight tirelessly to bring you the payment you deserve.

    How Much can I Receive from a Chair Accident Injury Claim?

    The value of a personal injury settlement award is based on the total sum of your available damages, which are forms of payments that will compensate you for your monetary losses. Here is a list of the economic and non-economic damages that may be included in your lawsuit:

    • Medical costs
    • Lost wages
    • Pain and suffering
    • Emotional distress
    • Property damage
    • Legal fees
    • Punitive damages

    How much you are entitled to for each of these categories depends on a variety of factors that pertain to your accident and the injuries you’ve suffered. Case values for accidents from broken chairs can range from $150,000 to $500,000 or more, though payments exceeding $2,000,000 are possible in cases of severe injury. If, on the other hand, you suffered relatively minor injuries, a reasonable settlement range is probably around $15,000 to $50,000.

    How Long will it Take to Reach a Settlement?

    There is no average amount of time when it comes to the settlement process to recover a victim’s payment. Sometimes, we can reach an agreement with the insurance company in just a few weeks, while other cases will take two or more years of legal actions, including a trial. It’s worth noting that trials are very rare in these cases; more than 90% of claims are settled without court intervention. If we had to narrow down a timeframe, we would say 6 to 12 months is the average amount of time to settle these cases, but there are many issues that will determine the length of time it takes to resolve a falling off a chair injury lawsuit.

    Statute of Limitations for a Personal Injury Case

    Generally, victims are given two years from the incident date to file a lawsuit against the negligent individual or entity. But this timeframe is not absolute, as there may be situations that can allow additional time to sue for an injury. In addition, if you are suing for an accident where a government entity is responsible (accidents in public spaces, city/ county agency buildings, etc.), you only have 6 months to file a compensation claim with the appropriate agency. Getting this right is crucial, as the courts will most likely invalidate your right to sue if you are past the statute of limitations. Call us right away to get started on a claim if a chair that is worn, uneven, or unsafe in some other way caused you to be injured.

    Chair Accidents in the Workplace

    Chairs are used in just about every workplace you can think of, so it stands to reason that workplace accidents involving chairs are common occurrences. If you fell out of a chair at work, there’s no need to prove that anyone’s negligence was the reason for your accident. As long as your injury occurred while you were at a job site, you can receive payment through worker’s compensation. Make sure to report the incident to your employer within 30 days, which is the statute of limitations for a workers’ comp claim. However, we strongly recommend that you go to your supervisor immediately. After all, waiting to take action on a claim will simply extend the amount of time it will take for the insurance company to approve your benefits.

    Unfortunately, some workers run into problems with their claim that they are unable to resolve on their own. If your claim was unjustly denied or you are having problems obtaining specific benefits you are entitled to, contact our office to speak with a workplace injury accident lawyer. We can also help if you are facing pressure from your job, like being forced to return to work too early. Simply give us a call at your earliest convenience to schedule a free case review.

    Second Opinion on Your Accident Claim

    You may have another lawyer that’s handling your case, but have they earned your trust and confidence, or do you feel like there are serious issues that need to be addressed? If so, a second opinion with our legal experts may be just the solution you need. These consultations are a way for claimants to learn about their legal options, like whether it would benefit them to switch lawyers if it’s taking too long to settle their case. Ultimately, any decision regarding your case is up to you; we are simply here to provide advice and guidance. For a free second opinion with a falling off a chair injury lawyer, contact us today.
