BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — A Boca Raton man says he was critically injured when the chair he purchased from Home Depot in Boca Raton collapsed under him. He is now suing Home Depot in Palm Beach County circuit court.
Daniel Rishavy of Boca says he purchased several of the Adirondack Chairs manufactured by “Adams Manufacturing” and sold at Home Depot. The chairs, according to the lawsuit, are marketed as being safe up to at least 250 pounds. Rishavy, according to the suit, weighs less.
“Adams and Home Depot’s representations proved false,” states the suit. “In particular, in April 2019, while sitting in and using as intended one of the chairs he purchased from Home Depot, Rishavy was injured when the back of the chair collapsed, which caused him to fall and suffer significant injuries.”
Photos attached as part of the suit, while in black and white and photocopied, do seem to suggest that the back of the chair ripped off.
The lawsuit, which we are publishing in its entirety below, seeks damages in excess of the $30,000 statutory minimum. The current version of the chair, pictured above, sells for $21.98.
