With Labor Day
Weekend fast approaching everyone is excited about end of summer barbeques,
picnics, and spending the long holiday weekend down the shore. Whether on the
beach, or having lunch at your favorite outdoor restaurant, umbrellas are
everywhere you look. While seemingly harmless, umbrellas are often left
unsecured, unlocked, or otherwise erected in an unsafe manner. When this occurs
the umbrella is susceptible to becoming airborne when hit with a gust of wind.
Data from the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) indicates that more
than 31,000 people were treated in hospitals for umbrella injuries between
2008-2018. US Senator Robert Mendez from New Jersey has asked for regulations
to make umbrellas safer such as requiring them to have printed warning labels.
Our firm has handled numerous cases where a victim was struck by an unsecured
umbrella. If this happens to you call our Attorneys at 732-514-6635.
