Product Liability: Dangerous Holiday Decorations (Part B)

As with any other type of consumer product, certain holiday candle holders and other defective holiday decorations have been recalled because they posed a fire hazard.

To give you a few examples of what could make a holiday decoration dangerous, here are a few examples of holiday decoration recalls from years past:
 

  • candles with the wrong wick size caused flames to burn irregularly;
  • Christmas lights that lacked a fuse and posed a fire hazard;
  • Christmas lights that contained exposed wires and posed fire and electrocution hazards; and
  • Christmas lights with undersized wires that posed fire and electric shock hazards.


If you are injured by a defective holiday decoration, your Philadelphia product liability lawyer will be tasked with pinning down all parties responsible for your product liability claim. Besides the manufacturer, distributor and retailer, other negligent parties could include the manufacturer, distributor or seller of any defective component parts that contributed to your injuries.

Damages in a Product Liability Claim

Once the negligent parties have been identified, the next step will be to determine your damages in a Philadelphia product liability claim. 

Damages might include any of the following:

  • past and future medical expenses;
  • the loss of past and future wages;
  • pain and suffering;
  • emotional distress; and
  • other expenses associated with your injury.


While the negligent companies will have attorneys working on their side, you should have an experienced Philadelphia product liability lawyer working with your best interest in mind. A Philadelphia product liability lawyer can guide you through the claims process or help you move forward with a lawsuit, if necessary, to get the compensation you deserve.
