What can the Normandie Law Firm do for you?
The Normandie Law Firm is here to assure that if you get attacked and injured by furniture, that you will receive the maximum amount of compensation you deserve for the company’s malfunctioning product. The lacerations and other injuries which can result from these pieces of furniture can vary in severity and may require medical attention which can be costly for more reasons than one.

Damages Available to You
If you purchased furniture and expected to be comfortable but instead received a laceration, you need to contact a personal injury attorney to help you with any future steps you should take in order to receive the full compensation to which you are rightfully entitled. “Damages” are the kinds of monetary compensation you can receive for an injury which was caused by a defective product. Below are the damages you may be able to receive if an RH furniture injured you.

  • Medical Expenses – If the furniture which you purchased cut you and you required medical attention to receive treatment for the laceration, your claim may entitle you for compensation to pay for the medical bills associated with your injury.
  • Disability Costs – The injuries you received may have been severe enough to change your lifestyle – either temporarily or permanently. This compensation can help cover the costs that are associated with that change in lifestyle from building a ramp in your home to the health concerns associated with the new disability.
  • Loss of Wages – Your laceration may have forced you to miss work. If you missed any work because of your injury, you can receive the wages you lost if you had worked during that time, at the same rate as your regular rate of pay.

Our lawyers can help you get the necessary compensation for the injuries you received from the malfunctioning furniture. We offer free consultation and the zero-fee guarantee, which means there’s no financial obligation or financial risk on your part.
