William John Light's answer File a complaint with the Dept. of Fair Employment & Housing. Your fragrance sensitivity might be a disability that requires reasonable accommodation. https://www.dfeh.ca.gov/complaint-process/file-a-complaint/
Jonathan S. Dennis' answer Generally speaking, misuse is a complete defense to a claim for strict product liability so long as the misuse was not foreseeable by the manufacturer. That said, I suggest speaking with an attorney that practices Product Liability since the facts of your particular injury may lead to liability against the manufacture and those that placed the product into the stream of commerce.
first, send a self-serving letter to whoever you are going to sue setting forth the facts and making a demand.
when they do not respond include the letter with the complaint to show the court you did not want to take up the courts time and had assumed they do the right thing...but they didn't. Thus you had to sue in small claims.
neither side can bring in a lawyer............maybe even contact your...
Timur Akpinar's answer I do not practice in California, but your question remains open for three weeks. A good starting point could be to consult with an attorney in your state to examine the recall, notices provided for such recall, manner in which fire arose, its connection to the recall, your damages, and determine what the best course of action would be to pursue any legal rights you may have here.
Timur Akpinar's answer I do not practice in California, but your question remains open for three weeks. In a general sense, strict liability means that the plaintiff does not need to prove negligence or any type of intent. This is in contrast with injury claims stemming from motor vehicle accidents or similar settings, where damages are usually pursued based on a theory of negligence. If you are inquiring beyond the purposes of general information, and you are a party in a claim, you should consult with a California...
Thomas A. Grossman's answer I don't know anything about your case, such as what your injuries are, have you joined a class action suit or filed suit on your own, have you gone to court, are you represented by an attorney, etc. So, I can't give you an estimate of what to ask for in damages, if I don't have any facts for me to consider. If you have an attorney, you should consult your attorney about the settlement you want. If you have done nothing more than write a letter to an insurance company, you are probably far...
Thomas A. Grossman's answer If you read the code provision carefully, you will find that each one states one or more grounds for disciplinary action against a contractor (e.g. abandonment of a project without cause). You can go online and look up a website called "Find Law." You can access all the codes under the Business and Professions Code, and it costs you nothing to do so. I would think you can figure would know if you caused any of the violations specified in those statutes. Good Luck.
Kevin E. Flynn's answer It is possible to sell an idea to a company but it is difficult without a patent or at least a patent application so that you have something to sell.
The company could seek a patent listing you as an inventor but it may be hard to get traction with them. Many companies will not talk to an inventor until there is a patent application on file as they use the patent application to define the scope of the non-disclosure non-use agreement.
William John Light's answer You have a possible claim for personal injury, along with your sons. Although, there is no reason that fiberglass would make anyone vomit, except maybe excessive coughing. It isn't helpful that you have thrown away the contents of your living room, as testing those items would establish the presence of fiberglass, but that is no longer possible.
Make a list of all of your economic damages, by item, and contact some PI attorneys. I am not certain on whether your damages are...
