Zinus Metal Bunk Beds Recalled Due to a Welding Defect That Could Collapse Resulting in Broken Bones, Serious Injuries, and Deaths
According to a safety recall alert published by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Zinus Metal Bunk Beds are being recalled due to a risk of severe injury or death. The bunk bed company, Zinus, stated that the welding joint that binds the upper twin bunk to the frame could break apart, leading to a dangerous collapse onto the full-size bed below.
The CPSC safety alert states that there have been numerous accidents resulting in lacerations and broken bones. Purchasers of the recalled metal bunk beds should disassemble the bunk beds for safety purposes and contact the company for a full refund. The company’s contact information is located on the company’s website zinusinc.com.
When someone is injured or killed by a defective product, the victim or the family of the decedent might have the legal right to file a product liability lawsuit to recover monetary compensation for damages, injuries, medical expenses, and other compensatory damages. Product liability law consists of rules that ascertain who is liable for an injury or death and when the victim or the victim’s family has a credible case.
In most product liability lawsuits, the manufacturers, distributors, and sellers could be held liable for causing harm to the victim. Product liability laws also recognize two types of product liability lawsuits: lawsuits based on defective manufacture and suits based on defective design. In most cases, product liability laws allow a potential plaintiff to recoup monetary damages.
Are the Recalled Zinus Metal Bunk Beds The Result of a Manufacturing Defect?
Manufacturing defects are defects that occur when the product is being assembled. In this case, the welding joints have a defect that could cause the upper bunk to break away from the bed’s frame and collapse upon the double bed below. Welding joint defects are considered manufacturing defects in most cases. Therefore, an experienced product liability attorney will initiate an investigation into the causation of the welding defect. For example, was the welding defect caused by faulty materials or low quality work.
