Television Wall Mount Recalled for Injury Risks

By Grant Law Office on February 10, 2014

Installing a television wall mount is a great way to elevate your screen without having to buy a large entertainment center. However, it is important to be careful in your choice of wall mount to ensure that it is the safest option for your home. The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) reports that Ergotron Interactive Wall Mounts have been recalled due to risk of injury. Officials say the “VESA” style mounting plate and the mounting ring on these products could fail, causing the television to fall and strike anyone nearby.

According to the official statement, approximately 195,000 Ergotron wall mount units in the United States have been recalled. The recall was issued after Ergotron received three reports of monitor plates separating from the wall mount system. No injuries were reported, but there was property damage to the components that fell. Anyone who owns one of the recalled wall mounts should contact Ergotron for a free repair kit right away.

Not all defective products are immediately recalled. In fact, there are many products in the marketplace that are currently under investigation. A product, whether it has been recalled or not, may be considered defective if it was defectively designed, poorly manufactured, or inaccurately marketed. In order to have a successful claim against a negligent product manufacturer, you will have to prove that:

  • The product was defectively designed, assembled, or marketed,
  • You suffered actual financial or physical losses, and
  • The defect directly led to your damages.

Ideally, the company responsible for your injuries will offer you a settlement that covers all of your medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other related damages. However, if the company refuses to take responsibility for their actions, civil litigation may be the only recourse. An experience Atlanta child injury lawyer will be able to help you better understand your legal rights and options.
