Lawyer for Defective Office Equipment
It wouldn't seem as if you face many dangers in your office space in day-to-day life at your workplace, but actually you could be at risk for injury without ever stepping outside. Office equipment that is faulty and defective can actually be the cause of many accidents and in the past it has led to recalls. There are many office supplies lying around offices just like yours that pose a threat that you may never have thought about.
Many offices come equipped with things like paper cutters, industrial strength staplers and box cutters, among other things. While proper use of these objects in most cases will prevent injury, some products are actually manufactured faulty which can cause serious injury. Even things like desks and cubicles can be manufactured poorly. If you were injured by an office desk then you may be entitled to compensation. Yes, even office equipment can cause personal injury. This is why it is important to stay informed as to products that have been recalled. In the event that you are injured by a defective piece of office equipment, get in touch with an experienced product liability attorney.
Recalled Office Chairs
Most Americans sit in them for eight hours each day and don't think anything of it, but some office chairs pose a possible risk. Office chairs, like any other consumer product, run the risk of breaking. When is a broken chair the fault of the manufacturer and when is it the consumer's fault? Most consumer products come with warning labels on them. Some chairs might have a weight limit and others may have hazard warnings. If a consumer has not ignored these warnings but the chair still breaks and causes injury, they may be entitled to a personal injury claim.
Recently, thousands of office chairs have been recalled by Office Depot®.
Office Depot's® Biella leather desk chair was recalled after reports that it posed a fall hazard. On these particular chairs, the welding that connected the seat to the gas lift could fail. This caused the chair base to separate from the seat at times. Before the recall, the company had received 11 reports of injury from the chair. This is not the only kind of office chair that might pose a safety hazard to consumers. If you were injured by a chair and you believe that it was the fault of the manufacturing company then you may be able to seek a claim with the help of Arnold & Itkin.
