Question: Bertram purchased a reconditioned paper shredder from Alliance Paper Co
Bertram purchased a reconditioned paper shredder from Alliance Paper Co. for use in her business. Before putting the shredder into use, she made some modifications that she felt would improve the efficiency of the shredder. The manufacturer of the paper shredder originally was Cohen Office Furniture and Office Equipment Co. While shredding some important office documents, an employee of Bertram was injured because the shaft holding the shredder blade came loose and severed his finger. Based on a claim of strict liability, the employee sued Cohen Office Furniture for his injuries. Legally, does the employee have a claim?
