If you’re in the market for a smart new dining room table and chairs, you would be well advised to hold off until the sales to make your purchase. If you don’t, you could end up spending hundreds of pounds over the odds, all for the sake of not being able to wait for a few weeks or months. It will also be worth bearing in mind that retailers employ a rather sneaky trick of ramping prices up on some items for the minimum amount of time required to make any eventual price cut they offer appear to be more generous.
No matter how much you’ve paid for your table and chairs, you’ll expect to get a good few years of life out of them before something breaks. In fact, the last thing you’ll expect will be for them to break almost as soon as you get them home and do you an injury as a result of an accident that was not your fault. If this were to happen, you may be in a position to retain the services of a top personal injury lawyer in Kensington with a view to suing their manufacturer for compensation.
Faulty furniture and a personal injury lawyer in Kensington
Picture the scene; you’ve just taken delivery of a lovely new dining table and chairs. Once they’ve been brought into your home, you set about selecting the best position in your dining room for them. After a few attempts, you settle on a position that you’re happy with.
You set the table and then go to your kitchen to cook an inaugural meal for it. You’ve invited people round for the occasion. Once everybody is seated, you serve the first course before making your way to your own seat. Upon sitting down, your seat buckles, causing you to drop to the floor, knocking out your two top-front teeth on the edge of your new table.
Under these most unfortunate circumstances, you might be able to use the services of a decent personal injury lawyer in Kensington to sue your tables and chairs’ manufacturer for compensation. You will have had the legal right to assume that the offending chair would not have posed a risk of doing you an injury that was not your fault.
