Standing desks offer a truly unique alternative to the common sitting desk. However, like all products, mistakes can occur during the period of production. Sometimes these ‘product defects’ can be minor hiccups that cause little harm and affect a minor portion of the whole production line. However, there are also instances wherein a product defect can cause severe injury and result in lifelong damages for those who are forced to suffer them. When victims suffer injury from defective standing desks, or any other defective product for that matter, they have every right to pursue legal action against the party responsible for their injuries. An accomplished attorney who has expertise in standing desk injury lawsuits can help you file a claim.

Filing A Lawsuit: Product Liability Laws
When a product defect causes harm to a consumer, said consumer has every right to pursue legal action against the at-fault party to ensure compensation for their damages. Known as product liability laws, these statutes allow for consumers to more easily pursue legal action against the company responsible for a defective product. They also ensure that companies do not allow for defective products to end up in the hands of consumers. However, regardless of the laws or not, defects happen, and one way or another these defective products may end up in the hands of consumers. Further information can be found by talking with an experienced attorney. A product defect can occur at any stage during it’s journey from design floor to retail store, but listed below are the three areas where a product defect is more likely to occur:

  • Design Defects: These defects are typically present before the product even makes it to the manufacturing floor. A design defect is a inherent flaw in a product which deems it unsafe for consumer use. In most cases, a design defect will result in large scale recalls as they are more likely to affect a wide number of products.
  • Manufacturing Defects: These defects occur during the product’s assembly. In this case, the company which organized the manufacturing of the product would be deemed liable for the damages.
  • Marketing Defects: These are defects that occur in the way the product is marketed to the public. This can include defects like: improper labeling, insufficient instructions, or inadequate safety warnings.

Regardless of where and when the defect occurred, it is incredibly important that victims of standup desk product defects consult proper legal assistance. A skilled attorney who has experience in product liability cases can make the difference between filing a successful claim for compensation and having your case dismissed from court entirely.

Regardless, you should make sure that you do not send the product back, or that your job does not get rid of the desk. It will need to be used as evidence for your claim. Make sure that you:

(1) DO NOT return the item to the manufacturer ot receive a refund; that will destroy all evidence you have to pursue the case.
(2) DO NOT tamper with the product or try to fix it.
(3) Seek immediate medical attention with a doctor so that there is no gap in medical treatment.
(4) Hold on to any receipts or documentation of purchase.

Filing a Lawsuit: Proving Negligence
Every personal injury lawsuit requires that the victim is able to prove the negligence of the party they are accusing of being at-fault. Proving negligence is incredibly vital to the success of any lawsuit. If a victim is unable to prove negligence, it is more than likely that he will find his case dismissed from court entirely. In order to effectively prove negligence you must be able to show evidence of the following key components of a negligence claim:

  • Duty: The plaintiff (injured or damaged party) must be able to show that the defendant (cruise ship staff or company) owed a legal duty to the plaintiff under the circumstances.
  • Breach: The plaintiff must be able to show that the defendant breached that legal duty through a specific action or failing to act.
  • Causation: The plaintiff must be able to show that the defendant’s actions or lack there of caused the plaintiff’s injuries
  • Damages: The plaintiff must show that they endured specific damages. This can usually be demonstrated through the presentation of medical bills, medical records, a loss of wages, or a loss of potential income.

Depending on the circumstances of your case, the way in which you prove negligence may differ; however, these components will always remain the same. A experienced lawyer is also incredibly useful in proving negligence as they can help you navigate through the subtle nuances a claim of negligence may often require. Furthermore, manufacturing companies are more than likely going to have the resources to employ a whole host of attorneys willing to dispute your claim. For this reason, it is imperative that you seek the assistance of one of our qualified attorneys with experience in standing desk injury cases.
