This case involves an injury to a male which occurred while the male attempted to reach some boxes. Two weeks prior to the incident in question, the plaintiff purchased a chair at a large retailer. The chair featured wire legs and a plastic frame. There were no weight requirements for the chair, listed, but the defense agreed that, based on their findings, the chair had been assembled correctly. While attempting to move some shoe boxes from the top of his oversized dresser (most of the shoe boxes did not weigh more than ten pounds), he used the chair to stand on while reaching some of the boxes in the back. While standing on the chair, two of the legs snapped, and the plaintiff fell, which caused him to break his leg and sustain a concussion. He brought suit against the manufacturer for a defective design.
