I have been involved in numerous garage door lawsuits where many different reasons for an injury have occurred. Having been retained as expert witness for both plaintiff and defense several common factors have been observed. In many cases unqualified individuals have attempted to repair or install garage doors. They have lacked the knowledge skills or even the basic required tools to perform the work safely and properly. I have been hired as an expert by garage door manufacturers and installers to defend claims that they are not responsible for alleged product defects. In most cases the components that failed failed as a result of abuse or improper installation on the part of the end user. As stated above the installation of many garage doors is not appropriate for an untrained person.
In the past the biggest concern with operating an overhead garage door was the potential risks associated with the springs used for balancing the door weight. Pre mid 1960s garage door installations typically relied upon a pair of stretched (tensioned) springs to assist the operation of the garage door pivoting hinges. These springs became loaded (tensioned) as the door was moved into the closed position. Unloading (releasing) of the stored spring energy occurred as the door was opened to the horizontal overhead position. One of the most dangerous aspects of these spring systems was that after a period of time often without any maintenance or inspection the points of attachment of these springs would rust or become weak.
