A: I hope your wife is recovering from her injuries. You're asking about her rights. That could depend on additional details. Was the orbital sander defective in any way. From a product liability standpoint, that means: was it defectively manufactured, designed, or did it fail to provide adequate warnings to the user. Another detail could be whether the sander was being used in a proper manner. A starting point could be to contact an Oregon attorney familiar with product liability law. Many work on a contingency basis and provide free initial consults. If you contact an attorney to discuss the matter in further detail, that could help your wife learn more about her legal rights here.
