Door Anchor Causing InjuryThese devices are defective for failing to meet the consumer expectation test. What this means is that the manufacturer failed to foresee consumer use of the product. As a result the device was improperly designed and manufactured, causing significant injuries. According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission the device was recalled due to a spontaneous release of the anchor ball. This hazard can cause significant injuries discussed below, which can leave the client permanently injured. When the door anchor suddenly releases the plastic black ball attached to the anchor can shoot forward at extremely high speeds. What this can do is cause devastating injuries to your eyes and head. In some respects the black ball attached at the end of the anchor can act like a bullet, leaving the victim permanently injured. Manufacturers and distributors should have warned users and issued an effective recall immediately, however they failed to do so. When a manufacturer fails to issue a recall they will be liable for both punitive and monetary sums. If you have been injured from an Embark Resistance Cord contact our lawyers at the Downtown L.A.
