The attorneys at the law firm of Kantrowitz, Goldhamer & Graifman, P.C. recently filed a lawsuit in a Rockland County Court against Campbell Soup Company, Inc., CSC Brands LP, and The Stop & Shop Supermarket Company, LLC, after a plaintiff was injured when a bottle of V8 Fusion Juice exploded into her eye.
The July 2013 accident caused the woman severe personal injuries, requiring surgical repair. The plaintiff bought the juice from The Stop & Shop Supermarket Company, LLC, located at 180 North Main Street, in New York City. CSC Brands LP is a subsidiary of Campbell Soup, which produced the juice.
The plaintiff suffered a detached retina and damage to her vision, among her injuries, and was obligated to pay significant amounts of money for medical care. Health care providers have informed her that certain injuries she suffered will be permanent.
The woman is seeking damages for strict product liability, failure to warn, breach of express warranty, breach of implied warranty, negligence and compensation for her husband, who is also named as a plaintiff.
Manufacturers have a duty to supply products that are safe. Defective products can cause catastrophic injuries or even kill consumers. In this case, the top of the bottle was not reasonably safe and fit for its intended purposes, causing the explosion.
If a dangerous or defective product has injured you, you may be able to file a product liability claim for compensation for any damages. KGG lawyer Barry S.
