BURN FROM DEFECTIVE PRODUCT
We have had quite a few cases where our clients were burned by a defective product. Our lawyers have handled propane tank explosion, burns from a defective gel pot, electrical burns, burn from laser treatment, and many others. Sometimes the burn injury is caused by improper use of the product, and sometimes it is caused because the product itself is defective, either in how it is made or designed, or because of poor instructions and warnings.
If you are injured because you were burned by a defective product, it is very important if possible to save the product and all pieces or parts of it, in exactly the condition it was in at the time you were injured. Don’t throw anything away, don’t have anything fixed, just save it. The product will ultimately have to be examined by experts, chosen by your lawyer as well as the insurance company for the manufacturer.
If you were burned by a product over which you don’t have control, e.g. a laser procedure at a doctor’s office, make sure to notify the business owner to save the product as it is, and call a lawyer as soon as possible so we can follow up for you and gather all appropriate evidence.
