Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Wiimote hurts my hand...can i sue?

Well.............. you already said it hurts your hand.
You are doing a consciously action, why would you be able to sue?
Learn to use it, that's all.

Nintendo has a duty of care to any who purchase their product.


 

Ummm, no they don't, they have a duty to sell a product and make their investors money. They also have a duty to provide a product without flaws. That does not cause injury to the user due to an engineering flaw. Or fail at a high percentage. Carpal Tunnel is a chronic injury caused by repetive stress over years, meaning that any repetitive motion can cause injury, hammering, typing, and playing video games, this is why there is a disclaimer that you can see when you turn on the system or read the instruction boook. There have been many things that have contributed to your condition and just because you condition presented during gameplay does not prove causation.

 If gun manufacturers can't be held liable for people who are accidentally shot by their products, I'm pretty sure Nintendo can't be held liable for people who play the Wii until it induces pain.

But really, that's for the court to decide. Find a crackpot doctor and a shady lawyer and see if you can win the judicial lottery.

Whenever you press the power button, doesn't a warning sign come up advising you?

OT: Yeah, you should definitely sue.

Nickelbackro, do you know what a duty of care is? Some of your points are ok, but you dont seem to understand the concept.

famousringo, that sounds like its outside the standard of care. proper use of a gun wont result in accidental shootings. unless there is a flaw in the gun, in which case they could be held responsible.

Bleu-ocelot. the same could be asked of you. You're rude.

Mr. Bubbles, Nintendo is not forcing you to play the remote. It even has a warning before you play the game.

Also, if your hand hurts, then why did you type about it, with your hands?



I understand if you sue someone from the way they make their product. I understand if a game system does something to hurt you. But, the system didn't move you didn't it? You moved it. It's your fault, chill.



Str8knox, issues with the wiimote does not equate to pain when typing.

Do you want to sue for pain and suffering or money?

If pain and suffering, then make sure you read the manuals for the Wii and listen to the warnings. If the problem becomes very serious and is caused by the WiiMote alone due to a serious design flaw and Nintendo does not warn you, you can sue.

If money, go rot.

I have to ask, what's the point of making this thread? You seem to be dead-set on the decision to sue Nintendo.

Also, why not just play with less force? You don't have to swing your arms to hit a ball in Wii Sports. If it still hurts though, I just recommend returning your Wii, or staying away from Motion control heavy games, unless they offer an alternate control scheme for you to use.
