About faulty chair injury claims

If a chair has been poorly designed or manufactured, then it may break when someone sits on it, as it may not be able to support a person’s weight. The angle people are seated on a chair means that if the chair breaks or collapses unexpectedly, they are unlikely to be able to right themselves before falling to the ground.

Falling from a chair could leave an individual with a variety of injuries depending on the circumstances of the accident, and the health and age of the injured person. For example, an elderly person may sustain a more serious injury than an adult due to bones becoming more brittle as we age. Or, if the chair is stood on a hard surface or near a hard or sharp object, the victim could land on it when they fall, causing a more severe injury than may otherwise have been the case.

In the worst case, other people may be injured if a chair collapses and causes the person in the chair to collide with other objects that could hit bystanders.  

Who is responsible?

Furniture designers should design seating that is ergonomic and practical for use, as well as considering the overall look and feel of the object, companies who make seats should take great care to design and fabricate them correctly for the safety of their customers. If either party fails to meet these obligations and you are injured as a result, then it is likely that your claim will be made against them.
