When Dangerous or Defective Products Cause Fires
One of the leading causes of fires in the United States is the use of dangerously designed or defective products. Poorly designed kitchen appliances, dangerous water heaters, space heaters, and even plug-in deodorizers are known to cause fires.
If you or someone close to you has been burned or otherwise injured due to the use of a faulty consumer product, you have legal options. At Aiken & Scoptur, S.C., our Milwaukee product liability lawyers represent clients throughout the country who have been injured in fires caused by defective products. We can help you seek compensation to cover all of your accident-related expenses, including hospital bills, lost wages, reconstructive surgery for scarring or disfigurement, and other damages. Contact us today with your story.
Dangerous Products Causing Burn Injuries
All of the following consumer products have been known to cause fires:
- Extension cords
- Electrical fireplaces
- Plug-in electrical deodorizers
- Space heaters
- Clothes dryers
- Faulty pilot lights
- Kitchen appliances
- Smoke alarms
- Safety Flex Connectors
- Flexible gas line connectors
If your injuries were caused by the use of any of these products, our firm can discuss your case and explain your legal options. If your injuries were caused at work, we can help you pursue a workers' compensation claim. If another person or party caused or contributed to your injuries at work (such as the manufacturer of a defective product) we can help you explore additional options for pursuing compensation.
It is important to review all the details of your case with an experienced personal injury and product liability attorney. Many times, a burn injury accident may appear to be just that-an accident. But once we look closer at the cause of the accident, we may discover that a product manufacturer or another party holds responsibility for causing the accident. At that point, we can guide you in taking appropriate legal action.
