Defective Consumer Products
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 a workplace injury without ever stepping foot 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. Most recently, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has issued a recall of all Office Depot ® Biella leather desk chairs. There were 11 reported instances in which consumers were harmed by a fall hazard present in many of these chairs. It seems as if the weld on the gas lift was faulty which caused the top half of the chair to become disconnected from the bottom. There are many office supplies lying around offices just like yours that pose a threat that you may never have thought of.
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.
