    Lawyer for Shower Seat Collapse Accident Injuries

    Lawyer for Shower Seat Collapse Accident Injuries incident lawsuit

    A shower seat is a device used by people with limited mobility or a disability that makes it difficult for them to remain standing in the shower. Shower seats can prevent incidents of slipping and falling, but at the same time, they can be the source of serious injuries when they are not designed or assembled correctly. These conditions can cause a shower seat to collapse and seriously injure the person who is using it.

    Did you or someone you know sustain injuries from a broken shower seat? In that case, please take a moment to discuss your rights and legal options with a shower seat collapse injury lawyer at our office. You or your loved one may be entitled to monetary compensation for the harm you’ve suffered, but there are many elements that go into proving a case of liability against the manufacturer, or any other party that’s responsible for your accident. Our lawyers are here to guide you through the process and ensure that you receive the highest possible settlement from a defective shower seat injury claim.

    The Dangers of a Collapsing Shower Seat

    When we set out to purchase a product, we take it for granted that the manufacturer has taken the necessary precautions to ensure that it’s safe for the general public. However, there are many things that can go wrong during the manufacturing process, which may cause a shower seat to be unsafe in various ways. Fault may also lie with the company that installs the shower seat, as careless conduct on their part can cause a shower seat to collapse during use.

    Shower seat collapse injuries are common in all sorts of setting, including private residences, hotels and resorts, Airbnbs, and nursing homes. Usually, the problem affects many units of the same product, which is why recalls are so common with these items. One example is the recent recall on Costco’s 20 inch teak shower benches. There were more than 80 reports of the seat collapsing or breaking during use, including 4 reports of injuries.

    Injuries Caused by a Collapsing Shower Seat 

    When a shower seat collapses on someone, it puts the person at risk of serious injuries to many parts of their body. This is particularly true for the elderly and disabled, who are the most likely to use a shower seat. These individuals have pre-existing health issues that put them at greater risk of injuries from a fall, such as:

    • Scratches and cuts
    • Internal bleeding
    • Broken bones
    • Neck and back injuries
    • Spinal cord damage
    • Coccyx fracture (broken tailbone)
    • Brain damage
    • Broken hip or pelvis
    • Dislocated or fractured kneecap
    • Fractured shoulder or collarbone
    • Soft tissue injuries
    • Nerve damage, leading to paralysis

    Please seek medical attention immediately, as some of these injuries have lifelong complications if they are not treated right away. Early intervention is the key to minimizing the effects of a collapsing shower seat injury, while establishing proof of the harm you suffered from a defective product. Along with seeing a doctor, contact Kenmore Law Group and speak to a lawyer with experience in defective shower seat accident cases.

    Can I Sue if I’ve Been Injured from a Broken Shower Seat?

    Yes, you may have the right to sue for a shower seat collapse accident and receive compensation in the form of monetary damages, such as medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. However, you must determine who is liable for the accident, which may be one of several parties:

    1. Shower seat manufacturer – California law holds manufacturers responsible when a defect with their product causes injuries to someone, as long as the defect was present before the product left the manufacturer’s possession.
    2. Property / business owner– Under the law of premises liability, property owners have a duty of care to ensure that all elements of their premises are safe. Thus, if someone is injured from a collapsing shower seat at someone’s home, a hospital, Airbnb, etc., they may have grounds to sue the property owner.
    3. Shower seat installation company– Negligence by the installers may have compromised the shower seat and made it prone to collapsing or breaking, which would give you the right to file a lawsuit against the installation company.

    One or more of these parties may have played a role in your accident, which would give you the right to pursue a personal injury lawsuit. Then again, if the shower seat in question is part of a recall, you may want to explore the option of filing a class action lawsuit. These lawsuits are filed by many victims, who have all sustained similar injuries from the same product.

    How Much are these Cases Worth on Average?

    Fall accident lawsuits are associated with high case values due to the injuries that people end up with from these incidents. However, there’s no average case value that would apply to these cases in general. On the one hand, we can say that many of the settlements recovered by our law firm are within the range of $100,000 to $2,000,000 and above. But there are also cases that settle for around $25,000 to $75,000, as they involve less serious injuries. To get a sense of what you can receive from a defective shower seat lawsuit, give us a call to speak with the product liability lawyers of Kenmore.

    How Long will it Take to Reach a Settlement?

    The time it takes to settle a shower seat injury lawsuit can range from a few weeks to one or more years, depending on the degree of injuries, the details of the accident, and the type of legal action that’s chosen by the plaintiff. Generally, class action claims take longer to settle than personal injury lawsuits, though the benefit here is that many victims having the same type of injuries makes a powerful statement that’s hard to deny. That’s why it’s essential to discuss the pros and cons of each legal action and make an informed decision with help from a class action lawsuit attorney. No matter which road you choose, we will endeavor to recover your settlement within 6 to 10 months, but realistically, it can take two years or longer to receive payment, especially if taking your case to trial is the best option.

    Is There a Time Limit to Sue for a Collapsing Shower Seat Accident?

    Yes, there is a two-year time limit to file a lawsuit if you sustained injuries from a defective shower seat. This period of time, known as the statute of limitations, begins on the date of your accident. There are limited exceptions that can buy you extra time to file a lawsuit, which we can advise you of during a free consultation. However it’s more than likely that you will lose the right to sue if you don’t file your lawsuit within the 2-year timeframe. Don’t delay in contacting our law firm, where an experienced fall accident lawyer can help you file a broken shower seat injury claim.
