Dangers of Defective Household Appliances

Posted on April 16th, 2009 No Comments

Household appliances, especially those with electrical components, can present a serious danger if improperly manufactured, shipped, or installed. Everyone involved in getting the product to your doorstep is responsible for ensuring that they do their job properly and do not cause any unnecessary malfunctions.

A manufacturer may inadvertently introduce a defect into the appliance, a shipper or distributor may poorly handle a product, causing it to malfunction, and an installer may improperly install the product. All of these incidents can create potentially hazardous situations, which can lead to severe injury or even death.

If you or a loved one has suffered injuries while using a defective, dangerous, or otherwise faulty appliance, contact Cincinnati defective appliance lawyer Shawn M. Stepleton at 513-321-7733, and we can examine the facts of your case in order to determine who may be liable for your injuries and what compensation you may be owed.

Common Defective Appliances

Almost every product that uses an electrical component can present an electrocution or fire hazard, especially if the product is poorly manufactured. Additionally, any appliance that uses gas such as a gas stove or grill may present a leaking gas hazard which can cause chemical poisoning or even an explosion. Any heat producing appliances such as space heaters or toasters are also prone to overheating and may pose fire hazards.
