But what happens if something goes wrong on one of those excursions resulting in injury? Is the booking company liable and, if so, to what extent?

Those are questions being considered in a recent lawsuit filed by a New Jersey woman against TripAdvisor and one of its brands, Viator. The lawsuit seeks to hold TripAdvisor liable for injuries allegedly suffered by the woman while on a camel ride tour that was booked through the booking company but operated by a third party. For further details about this case read, “Tour Injury Lawsuit Tests Whether TripAdvisor Is Liability-Free.”

In fact, the Consumer Product Safety Commission reported that last year approximately 14 million people in the U.S. were treated for injuries caused by household objects; some 9,000 of those injuries proved fatal. This risk is compounded if the items in question are defective or not used as intended.

The list of household items most likely to cause injury ranges from the obvious (ladders and cutlery) to the more obscure (ceilings and tables).  To see the list of the top 20 most dangerous items in the home and who is most at risk from each, read “11 dangerous everyday things in your home that cause the most injuries.”
