In our previous blog post, we discussed how crafts can sometimes be a liability for the person who is selling them. That brings up the important point regarding goods that aren’t mass made — these products can be dangerous for the people who use them. Even in these cases, a product liability lawsuit might be in order.
We know that seeking compensation for injuries caused by handmade goods like crafts isn’t something that most people would take lightly. The fact is that if you are injured by these crafts, there isn’t any reason why you should have to deal with the effects all on your own just because the item wasn’t mass made.
As is the case with all product liability cases, you have to be able to show that your injuries were caused by the accident and that the accident was caused by the craft. This can be complicated in some cases, but we can focus our investigation to work on showing this.
Some issues with homemade goods can lead to serious health risks. Home canned foods can put a person at risk of botulism if they aren’t properly prepared and canned. In the most serious botulism can cause death, but even if death doesn’t occur, the effects are serious because this illness causes paralysis of the muscles.
As you can see, the medical care costs can be considerable in these cases. Seeking compensation is one option that you have to try to get back the money that you had to spend because you were hurt by a handmade item.
