I went to a store to buy pajamas for my sons pajama day at school and when I got home n started to take the pajama out of the hanger, I noticed they had left the security tag on the neck, it was very visible and he need it to wear it first thing in the morning, I had no time to go back to the store and have them take the sensor off. I tried to cut it by myself with the kitchen scissors n the scissors broke and the handle that was sharp from breaking slice a piece of my skin off I started to bleed for like 1/2 hour and I was in pain for the rest of the night. I’m gonna lose days at work because is an open wound n my hand could get infected. Can I sue them?
In my opinion you would not be successful in such a claim.
answers to questions are for general purposes only and do not establish an attorney-client relationship.
I think if you sued your case would be tossed out. I also think the value of damages would not warrant a suit even if you could maintain one.
Please DO NOT message or phone me with further questions or comments as the discussions would be outside this forum and would not be visible to the public (the only exception to this being for serious prospective clients). If you have additional follow up questions or additional facts to add, re-draft them into a new question and repost it. My responses on this website DO NOT constitute a consultation, nor do they establish an attorney-client relationship. Only a written retention agreement signed by client and myself will establish an attorney-client relationship.
Small claims matter. Maybe you would win, but the damages would probably be too low to make it worthwhile.
