Who is Responsible?
Although it may seem obvious who is responsible, the legal responsibility isn’t always so clear. A party rental product injury could be the fault of one or more parties. This type of claim could involve the product manufacturer, the rental company, delivery/setup contractors, or the event property owner.
It is important to conduct a thorough investigation to determine legal responsibility. Many times, the party responsible will deny any liability. A lot of injured people feel helpless and give up, but an injury attorney may be able to help.
Rental Company Liability
When a party rental product causes injury, the rental company may be responsible. If there is negligence in keeping products safe, clean, and in proper working condition, the rental company is responsible. But are they the only responsible party?
Product Manufacturer Liability
The manufacturer of the product may also be responsible. If the product is defective, the manufacturer could also be responsible for the injury. This area of the law is called product liability.
Property Owner Liability
If a defect in the property causes or contributes to an injury, the property owner may be held responsible. This area of the law is called premises liability.
Do You Have A Legal Claim?
When a party rental product causes serious injury, the injured person may be eligible for compensation. An injury is serious when it impairs bodily function and/or permanently disfigures the body. Some basic examples of related serious injuries include, but are not limited to:
- cuts that require stitches and/or leave scars
- broken bones
- head injury
- any injury that requires surgery or physical therapy
