Remember, as a plaintiff, you would bear the burden of proof. A products liability case must be proved with the help of an expert. You would need to find an expert on shaver-making to inspect the razor and to conclude that its design or manufacture were somehow faulty. You also will have to show that you used the razor according to the manufacturer's instructions. You did read the instructions, didn't you? Finally, you have to sustain an injury. A local infection easily cured with a course of antibiotics and not leaving a nasty, disfiguring scar is worth, probably, less than $2500 (I usually hate to put numbers on these things, but on this one, I am certain enough.) That's probably less than 1/3 of what your shaver expert will charge you for his initial evaluation and report. Stop dreaming about windfalls and go to a doctor to get this taken care of; and get on with your life.
How long have you been married to her son? I felt the same way towards my mother-in-law at first. She too is from a different country, Samoa and well, her english is poor. She doesnt make sense half the time.
But Ive learned to be patient. She is a really good person and loves me and her grandaughters to death. We have actually gotten really close over the past 3 yrs and I am closer to her than my own mother.
Is the reason you cant stand her because she doesnt speak english well, or are there other reasons you havent listed?
Just try to be patient. You can communicate through other ways than just speaking. Actions speak louder than words sometimes.
Mothers day is coming up. Get her a nice card ( wait, can she read english? lol) If not, just send a thoughtful little gift her way. Things will get better with time. Hang in there. I know how difficult it can be..
