Household appliances and fixtures can be defective for a number of reasons:
- Poor design
- Flaws in the manufacturing process or errors made in the manufacturing process
- Errors in labeling or instruction manuals
- Manufacturing is outsourced overseas and errors occur in the manufacturing process because the company does not oversee the making of the product closely
Just about any household fixture and appliance can be affected by product defects. Your fridge, stove, and other appliances can all have flaws that lead them to malfunction or even catch fire. The larger the appliance in question, the more severe the possible injuries.
Manufacturers and retailers have an obligation to ensure that the products they sell are safe. When manufacturers are negligent, victims who have been injured may be able to pursue a legal claim.What Types of Injuries Result from Defective Products?
No matter what has caused the defects in your household items and housewares, these types of flaws can lead to many types of injuries, including:
- Burns caused from electrical short outs and electrical flaws
- Exposure to toxic materials
- Facial injuries
- Eye injuries
- Head injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
If you have used a household fixture or appliance correctly for its intended use and have sustained a serious injury, you will need to get legal advice as well as medical attention. While your homeowners insurance policy may cover some of the damages, in many cases you may have a product liability claim in Homestead or your community and you may be will to seek fair compensation to help pay for lost income, medical bills, and other expenses.
If you couldn’t work tomorrow due to an injury and or were suddenly faced with tens of thousands of dollars – or more – in medical costs, how would you survive financially? Unfortunately, it is a question that many personal injury survivors in Homestead have to ask themselves after they are injured by defective products. Even with insurance, many people who suffer a catastrophic injury due to dangerous household products find themselves scrambling to replace lost income and pay for medical expenses. If your injuries were caused by a manufacturer’s negligence or recklessness, however, keep in mind that you may be able to seek compensation under Florida laws.
