Have you or a loved one been injured by a defective product? We’ll get you the compensation you deserve.
If you have ever suffered a burn injury as the result of a defective product, several parties may possibly be held liable, depending upon the individual situation. The negligent party could be the product designer, the manufacturer, or the retailer. The defect could be in design, manufacture, or in how the product is marketed at the retail location.
Some examples of how defective products can lead to burn injuries are:
- A house fire which results from a defective smoke alarm
- A defective space heater which overheats and causes a fire
- An electric blanket that overheats and catches on fire
- A laptop computer battery that overheats and catches on fire
- Burns caused by chemicals, especially industrial chemicals

Some of the ways in which a party may be held liable, depending upon the individual situation, are:
- Not performing sufficient testing on a product before it placed on the market to ensure that it is safe for public use
- Failure to recognize potential product danger before placing it on the market.
- Failure to provide adequate warning to users of the product of any potential risks or hazards that use of the product may pose.
- A mistake made during the manufacturing process, perhaps failing to install an automatic shut-off switch on a product
According to the National Institute of Health, approximately 3,000 to 4,000 people die from burn injuries each year. Those most commonly injured by burns are children and the elderly.
Chemical burns tend to happen more frequently in the workplace than at home, usually in settings where industrial chemicals are used. Burns that result from household chemical use are normally not as severe because the chemicals in household products are nowhere near as strong as the chemicals used for industrial purposes.
