I will send you the reply later
Company X sells small hobby drones over the internet to consumers. Jessie buys one of the drones and in the course of using it, the blade falls off mid flight and hits his five year old son, Wink, in the eye, leaving him partially blind. The actual blade and assembly was made in Guatamala by a manufacturer there that has not had offices in the United States.
Jessie hire a lawyer to take his case. Company X is located in Canada but has offices in North Dakota. The accident occurred in Jessie’s home state of Kansas. The value of the case is estimated to be at least $100,000.00, according to the attorney.
Where are the possible places/courts for the lawsuit to be filed?
What are the problems/issues/roadblocks that Jessie may encounter?
What preventative measures could have been taken by Company X to avoid jurisdictional issues?
