Georgetown Defective Household Appliances Lawyers

When you’re preparing to purchase a new blender, hair dryer, or other household appliance, you typically consider things such as cost or quality. It’s normal to ask about quality and price—not about safety. We do not tend to pause and wonder whether a normal appliance poses a serious safety risk for ourselves, our property, and our families. We rightfully assume that the products we purchase are supposed to be safe. Unfortunately, far too many people each year are injured by defective household products.

Manufacturers, engineers, and distributors are legally expected to create products that will not harm consumers. If a product or appliance has the possibility to be dangerous, it must have adequate and visible safety warnings. The experienced defective household appliances lawyers at Evans Moore, LLC know that dangerous products can cause bodily harm and property damage. Unsuspecting consumers might find themselves with high hospital bills, work wages lost to recovery time, and immense pain and suffering. With the help of skilled legal counsel, you can seek financial compensation from the party responsible for your injury.

Common Defects for Household Appliances

The law requires designers, manufacturers, and distributors to make products that do not put consumers in unnecessary danger. These regulations are not difficult to follow. In fact, it is relatively easy for companies to avoid common defects. When businesses take the time to test their appliances and use quality parts to build their products, they severely decrease the chance that a consumer will be injured.

Some common defects companies are meant to avoid when they create and sell their appliances include:

  • Inappropriately sharp parts
  • Low-quality mechanical components
  • Flammability
  • Poisons or toxins in appliances used around food
  • Explosive parts
  • Exposed or poorly-circuited electrical wiring
  • Toxic paints or other substances

Customers who are injured by defective household appliances can face serious medical issues. Many people suffer from intense lacerations, burns, and bruises. Others have been forced to cope with the painful, long-lasting side effects of toxins and poisons.
