Defective Holiday Decorations
Defective holiday decor may be dangerous. Over 173,000 victims were injured from 2007 to 2016 due to Christmas trees, lights, and other holiday decorations, requiring emergency medical treatment. If you’ve been harmed by a defective holiday decoration, you may seek compensatory damages in the form of a product liability claim.
There are varying types of product liability claims you may pursue, including:
A product may be faulty even before it is manufactured. Product designers have a responsibility to ensure that the products are safe to use by consumers by the intended purpose and intended age.
A product may develop defects during manufacturing. Any missteps during this phase may lead to significant injuries. Inadequate testing or inspection may also cause harm.
Defective marketing occurs when there is improper labeling and instructions on the product to adequately warn consumers of the potential risk of using their product. Manufacturers may be held liable for damages related to defective marketing.
At the Law Office of Cohen & Jaffe, we are well-versed in handling even the most complex product liability claim. We begin by comprehensively investigating your claim, gathering valuable evidence, interviewing witnesses, and building a robust case on your behalf. We aggressively advocate for the complete compensation you deserve for the harm you have incurred due to manufacturing negligence.
