Here is a scenario for you to consider. Rather than cook dinner, you and your family decide to visit the local pizza place for a quick bite. And while enjoying your favorite pizza you’re your daughter suddenly falls to the floor, and injures her head when it hits the floor. Thankfully her injuries were minor, but you still had a harrowing night at the ER, instead of a quite night enjoying the pizza.
Now the owner of the restaurant is claiming to have no responsibility for your daughter’s injuries, and refuses to reimburse you for the costs of her treatment. After careful consideration you decide to seek legal help to obtain the just restitution that you and your family deserve.
So do you file as a defective product lawsuit or a property liability lawsuit? While only your lawyer is knowledgeable of the legal stands in your jurisdiction can provide the final answer to this question, here are some simple guidelines to what constitutes a Defective product lawsuit.
A defective product is any product that injures a person due to faulty labeling, a design defect or a manufacturing defect. The law further accepts that the product was being used in a manner in which it was intended, and that you were unaware of any defects before you began to use the product.
Property Liability law generally accepts that the owner of the property failed to maintain the property in a safe condition.
