A: It is possible, but the likelihood of success on a lawsuit, and the viability of recovery is a very fact specific determination that cannot be made with confidence unless one has much more information than is provided in this question. Therefore, I would recommend organizing everything related to this situation, including the product, pictures, and medical records for any injuries sustained, and consulting with an attorney individually. Many of us offer free consultations, and will be able to give you a more definitive answer to your question after reviewing the details of your situation.
