I was grinding boiled spinach and my food processor malfunctioned. The content came out of air valve and splattered on my face and neck. Because of that I had some burns and had to take 1 week leave from office ( Technically I was injured for 2 weeks, but I was in the process of switcing job and for 1 week I was not employed). I reported it to the manufacturer, they took my unit to inspect and came with a conclusion that I did not close the lid properly. Nevertheless they agreed to pay me $500. I asked them for $5000(approx) for my medical expenses and loss of pay which I have given all the receipts for and $5000 for Pain and suffering. I am planing to sue them in Small claims court. Do I have a chance of winning the case?
