Household Appliance Injuries
Our Pennsylvania Product Liability Lawyers Are Ready to Fight for Justice
People may have a tendency to take their household appliances for granted. We expect our appliances to work for us, not injure us. But injuries caused by large and small household appliances occur all the time. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission reports that there are about 900,000 emergency-room treated injuries and more than 400 deaths each year caused by household appliances.
If you or a loved one was injured by a household appliance, you may be entitled to compensation for lost income, medical expenses, and pain and suffering, among other possible damages. Contact Metzger Wickersham for experienced legal assistance.
Please note: When in the best interest of the client, household appliance lawsuits may be referred to other law firms.
Defects in Household Appliances May Lead to Severe Injuries
Injuries from household appliances most often involve fires caused by appliances with faulty wiring or other defects. Defects in appliances such as washing machines, vacuum cleaners, and paper shredders have also been known to lead to catastrophic injuries, such as limb amputation.
Other common household appliances that could cause injuries if defective include:
- Water heaters
- Stoves and ovens
- Exercise equipment
- Curling irons
- Portable fans
