Our team at the Cottrell Law Office knows that most people in Arkansas rely on household appliances like stoves, ovens, washer/dryers, dishwashers, refrigerators, and plumbing fixtures to make daily tasks easier and even possible in some instances. In most cases, these products work just fine; however, this is not always true. In fact, many defective household appliances are released on the market, making their way into the hands of innocent people who use them and sustain often serious injuries as a result.
These injuries can cause significant problems for victims and their families, beyond the physical harm. From the expensive medical bills and lost wages to the emotional trauma such an injury can cause, many victims find themselves struggling to recover after being harmed by a defective household appliance. Fortunately, many can get help in this situation by holding the manufacturer responsible for its unsafe product.
Injuries Caused by Defective Household Appliances
Depending on the type of household appliance that is defective and how it malfunctions, the possible injuries one might suffer vary greatly. However, some more common types of injuries caused by these unsafe appliances include:
- Electrical burns
- Eye damage
- Smoke inhalation
- Cuts from flying parts
- Toxic chemical exposure
- Head injuries
- Crushed extremities, such as fingers or toes
These injuries are often so sudden and of such high impact that they can do a lot of damage to the victim. While these injuries can be frightening and worrisome in any circumstances, they are often more so when a child is affected.
