The Class Action lawsuit is a legal suit in which individuals are able to file their own lawsuit against the manufacturer, distributor and retailer of the product or products which are the cause of their suffering. Class Action lawsuits are usually filed by groups who claim to have been affected by the same alleged wrongdoing at the hands of the manufacturer or distributor. These claims can range from a wide range of issues to include exposure to lead paint and insecticides which were used during the manufacturing process for these products. The Class Action lawsuit then names all of the individual victims along with all of the retail stores, suppliers, manufacturers, distributors, etc that have supplied the products to the retail outlet of the defendant.
Deck repair and deck restoration are two very different practices which require two completely different sets of equipment and products in order to complete the task. The deck repair process involves a combination of deck restoration and refinishing which are done on an existing deck or patio deck which has begun to look worn and unsightly. The goal of this process is to achieve a new and fresh appearance to the decking area and will consist of sanding, painting, sealing, re-staining, and clear coating. The goal of this process is to bring the current deck to life, as well as to make it safe for family and guests to use while on your deck or patio deck.
Another decking repair and refinishing technique are to apply an organic rust-oleum stain onto the surface of the decking material in order to fill in any cracks, scratches, chips, or stains. A Class Action lawsuit against a deck supplier is often filed when an individual who uses an organic rust-luminescent stain finds that the new stain gives the deck a substantially better appearance than the one that was previously in place. The Class Action lawsuit then names all of the defendant’s distributors, manufacturers, wholesalers, and stores that sold the deteriorated deck materials to the retail outlet which was sold the brand name product. The manufacturers are then sued if they do not supply the needed products in sufficient quantities or if they do not properly maintain their inventory of deck stain. These cases often result in substantial financial settlements.
A Class Action lawsuit can also be filed if a decker suspects that there have been defects with the deck which was contributed to by shoddy workmanship. In these cases, the plaintiff usually files suit under the same statutes that would cover an individual who has filed a Class Action lawsuit against the manufacturer or distributor. In order to file such a lawsuit, the plaintiff must prove that a defective piece of equipment allowed an injury to occur. This proof can often be provided by hiring an engineer to examine the deck or patio deck. The engineer is also likely to determine whether there may be additional safety issues with the deck which were ignored due to the manufacturer’s efforts to save money on labor and materials.
Deck repair and painting are something that homeowners must regularly perform in order to maintain their decks. However, it is possible for homeowners to come into contact with unsafe paints and rust-oleum products which can cause serious damage to their decking. Some of the main concerns with these products include lead paint and rust-olive. Lead paint is extremely harmful as it leeches lead into the ground and the water which run off of it. When these chemicals are released into the air, the result can be extremely hazardous to anyone who breathes them in.
A Class Action lawsuit against a manufacturer and distributor of deck-related products is also likely to result in large financial settlements. There is currently a pending class action lawsuit against the makers of Deck-Rake, a tool used to apply deck sealant to wood decks. The complaint in this case claims that the Deck-Rake product was dangerous and caused significant health problems, including lead poisoning. If you think that you may be suffering from lead poisoning, you may wish to contact an experienced and knowledgeable personal injury attorney. These lawyers specialize in personal injury claims stemming from defective products and are well-versed in the various risks associated with using these products.
