I took my daughter to a mall and got some items. On the way out she wanted to try a massage chair in the middle of the mall and i agreed. Shortly into the massage she started freaking out and trying to get out but her legs were pressurized in the chair. She told me it was strange and touching her innapropriate by her genitals. I took a video and sat in it myself and quickly got out. She was scared and imbarrassed and felt violated.
If the chair is malfunctioning - it is just that. Unfortunately, I think it would be a waste of your time as you have to bring an action against the owners and the manufacturer and then have to prove damages. I would need more information about this chair to be able to give you more guidance. Please feel free to reply back. Thanks.
What damages would you be seeking in a lawsuit? What reason would you have to file a lawsuit?
If you really want to file a lawsuit would it be on your behalf or for your daughter? Either way you better talk to a lawyer to see the methods you have to follow. Remember, however, that there has to be both fault and damages in order to win a lawsuit. You may have all the grounds in the world but if you had no compensable damages it is a waste of your time to sue anyone.
You must be joking. I see no cause of action nor damages. Washington may have specific rules about massage chairs, though.
