Paralyzed Door County visitor takes chair company to court

The Adirondack-style chair that could be sitting in your yard is the reason why a Green Bay man is taking a manufacturer to court after he got injured at a Door County resort last year.


In a story published by the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel on Wednesday, Ronald Scanlan of Green Bay is suing Adams Manufacturing after a tumble he took in one of their Adirondack-style chairs last fall left him paralyzed. The lawsuit claims that after he “placed, some, but not all of his weight” on one of the chairs, the chair collapsed and caused his injuries. Adams Manufacturing lists the chair as its number one seller among its residential products. A spokesperson for the company told the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel that they meet or exceed the American Society of Testing and Materials standards.   The incident occurred at Homestead Suites in Fish Creek, though the report states that the resort is not named as a defendant in the lawsuit.
