Summer Barbecues Create a Significant Injury Risks

Whether you are hosting or attending a summer barbecue, some of the risks that you can expect to face include the following:

  • Dangerous gas grills: Gas grills can cause a significant risk to barbecue guests if the grill turns out to be defective and an explosion occurs. Victims can pursue a claim for compensation against the grill manufacturer if a defect in the product caused an accident and resulting injuries to occur.
  • Unsafe swimming pools: Unsafe swimming pools can be a major risk during summer barbecues, and drowning is a common problem during the warm summer months. Those who fail to ensure that their pools are secure before hosting a barbecue can be held accountable for drownings. If pool conditions cause injury, such as dangerous drains or broken ladders, the pool owner could also be held liable for losses.
  • Unsafe properties: If you’re invited to a barbecue and the property where the event is held is unsafe, you could potentially take legal action against the property owner. Property owners are expected to make sure their property is reasonably safe for guests before inviting them onto their premises. If a property owner allows guests to come where there are dangerous conditions and fails to provide adequate warning, guests can hold the property owner accountable if injury occurs as a direct result of the owner’s negligence.
  • Tainted foods: There have been numerous recent outbreaks of contaminated food products. If you consume food at a summer barbecue that turns out to be dangerous because of bacteria or because of harmful ingredients in the food, it is important to understand the options available to you to take legal action against the food manufacturer or distributor.
