Under what specific product liability claims would you advise Dave to sue Ace and why? Someone with common sense would notice the barrier as a safety device, but Dave decided it was unnecessary and was not needed. Dave removed the safety device and allowed his son, Zak, who is a minor, use the mower. Dave wants to sue Ace, Inc. for damages done to his son’s foot. Taking a look into this case, there are a few questions that are brought to our attention. Manufacturers must label their products accordingly. With that said, did the mower have specific warnings on the plastic safety barrier that would alert its users to potential injury if it was removed? Why is the safety device removable? If the mower did not display a safety warning and the plastic barrier was removed, and the user was injured, then the manufacturer will be sued under strict product liability . "Whether a warning should have been affixed is often a question of what is reasonably foreseeable, and the failure to affix a warning will be treated as negligence” (Advanced Business Law and the Legal Environment, 2014).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
