Small Appliance Safety

Sometimes, the greatest hazards in our homes come from the things we least suspect. But the grim truth is that many of the modern conveniences that we have come to take for granted can, in an instant, threaten the safety of an entire family and the family’s property. When these stunning accidents occur, it is often the case that a negligent manufacturer may be held legally liable for injuries and other damage that arise as a result of a defective or malfunctioning product. This can be especially important in instances where the medical bills and other expenses exceed the policy limits on the relevant insurance policies.

If you have been injured or sustained property loss due to a dangerous small appliance, then it may be in your best interest to speak with a skilled and experienced attorney about the potential benefits of a legal action.

Common Appliance Dangers

Looking at a toaster, it does not immediately seem all that likely to cause grievous harm. But, like all small appliances, it is electrically charged and therefore poses all the dangers that accompany electricity. Sadly, many of the problems that lead to serious injury are the result of defects or malfunctions that cannot be observed in advance of the accident and corrected or avoided.

Some common household appliance dangers include:

  • Toaster overheating (can cause severe burns; melting plastic can trigger fires)
  • Electrical shocks (can cause electrical burns or electrocution)
  • Garbage disposal or blender surges (may lead to amputations or severe lacerations)
