Dangerous Appliances & Electronics: Overview

Modified on 2009/10/14 21:32 by admin
Poorly designed or improperly manufactured household appliances are responsible for thousands of injuries and deaths each year. In addition, many purchasers of appliances fail to operate the items properly. For instance, each year over 130,000 fires occur because appliance owners place the appliances too close to flammable materials such as newspapers or fabrics such as curtains or bedding. Additionally, thousands are poisoned each year from emissions of carbon monoxide from household appliances. Unfortunately, appliance manufacturers often fail to warn buyers of the dangers associated with their products.

If you have been injured by a defective appliance, it may be important to contact an attorney who can help you protect your legal rights. Please keep in mind that there may be time limits within which you must commence suit.
