A products liability/consumer product safety expert witness for the defense discusses a case involving a fast-food patron who was injured when a piece of artwork fell. The plaintiff was having coffee and eating yogurt at a restaurant owned and operated by a fast-food chain. With no warning, a piece of framed artwork came loose from the wall and struck her in the lower back. She then sued the restaurant for negligence and premises liability. She alleged that the restaurant knew or should have known that the artwork presented a hazard. The restaurant asserted that it did not create or cause the allegedly dangerous condition. It did not manufacture, assemble, design, or install the artwork that fell on the plaintiff.
