Outdoor Furniture Injuries
During the summer months, people often enjoy entertaining guests and family members on outdoor patios, decks, and in backyard recreation spaces. Many property owners choose to fill such spaces with outdoor furniture designed for relaxation and entertainment. It is important for homeowners to make sure to properly maintain their outdoor furniture pieces to make sure their guests do not suffer injuries as a result of damaged or dangerous pieces.
If a person suffers injury due to the negligence of a property owner, he or she may be eligible for compensation for pain, suffering, and medical costs incurred as a result of the injury.

Dangers of Outdoor Furniture
Possible injuries that can be caused by outdoor furniture include:
- Collapsed furniture pieces
- Incorrect construction of chairs and tables
- Cuts and lacerations from sharp edges
- Injuries caused by exposed nails and screws
- Infections caused by rusty furniture
- Wounds caused by jagged edges and exposed building materials
If outdoor furniture is not properly weather-treated and maintained, it is possible for injuries to occur. Because such pieces are often exposed to inclement weather conditions, it is important to regularly inspect them for hazards that may cause injury to guests and family members.
