Product liability case alleges waterslide gravely injured boy

Frighteningly, every year in California and across the United States, numerous people are injured by dangerous or defective products. When these injuries are severe, the victims or their families typically find it beneficial to consult a product liability lawyer. Often, a successfully litigated lawsuit is the only way to get the funds necessary to help with medical costs and other financial consequences.

In another state, for instance, a young boy's parents have filed a lawsuit on behalf of their son. They claim that he suffered serious, permanent injuries due to a product's allegedly faulty design. The complaint names as defendant Bette Bounces, the company reportedly responsible for the operation and maintenance of the inflatable water slide they claim injured the child. The boy was a guest at a birthday party where the hosts had rented the slide for party-goers.

The complaint alleges that the boy was descending the slide when a hazardous bump in the device suddenly propelled him into the air. When he landed, he apparently suffered a broken leg and other injuries, including some deemed permanent. The plaintiffs seek to hold the defendants liable, claiming it was the rental company's negligence in ensuring the equipment was safe for use that caused their son's injuries. For this, the parents allege multiple counts of negligence as well as the negligent infliction of emotional distress.

The lawsuit seeks a judgment in excess of $50,000 in addition to punitive damages, as well as legal fees and further relief as the court deems fit. Residents of California who have been seriously injured due to the design or manufacturing defects of a product, or even faulty marketing or product labeling, may be confused, hurt and scared, unsure of where to turn and how to pay for the medical bills incurred as a result of the dangerous product. Luckily, there are professional resources available to guide such individuals through their legal product liability options for justice and compensation for pain and suffering.
