What are the laws surrounding Bair Hugger accidents?

What are the laws surrounding Bair Hugger accidents? Your Bair Hugger blanket lawsuit could conceivably take one of the following forms:

Negligence: This would be an action at common law. The basic premise of your suit would be that the manufacturer acted unreasonably-less than what another manufacturer would have done in the circumstances-and that conduct caused you injuries that produced economic or non-economic damages.

Failure to Warn: Failure to warn cases fall in the realm of products liability. As opposed to negligence actions, this is a strict liability lawsuit and you therefore do not have to prove the defendant acted unreasonably. You just have to prove a set of facts including, in these circumstances, that the defendant’s lack or insufficient warnings/instructions (regarding the Bair Hugger) caused your injuries when you were reasonably/foreseeably using the defendant’s product.

Defective Design: Defective design causes of action also are a breed of strict products liability. In this instance, you would be alleging that the design of the product (the Bair Hugger in these circumstances) was deficient, could have been better, and was the cause of your injury after you used it in a reasonable/foreseeable manner.

Misrepresentation: Misrepresentation cases fall under the regime of contract law. Generally, they state a claim that one party made materials statements or actions that induced another to act and enter into a contract. Applied here, one could say that the manufacturers of the Bair Hugger induced consumers into buying them by convincing buyers that they were safe when they in fact were not.

★★★★★
Extremely impressed with this law firm. They took control of a bad motorcycle crash that left my uncle seriously injured. Without any guarantee of a financial recovery, they went out and hired accident investigators and engineers to help prove how the accident happened. I am grateful that they worked on a contingency fee basis as there was no way we could have paid for these services on our own. Ethan Armstrong, Google User

This lawyer really helped me get compensation for my motorcycle accident case. I know there is no way that I could have gotten anywhere near the amount that Mr. Rosenfeld was able to get to settle my case. Thank you. Daniel Kaim, Avvo User
