Toronto Defective Household Appliances Lawyers
We use household appliances to perform many everyday tasks. From helping to make breakfast, do laundry, and help us live comfortably in our homes, household products serve many purposes in our daily life. When you spend money on an appliance for your home, it is reasonable for you to believe that it will operate properly and safely, as its manufacturers intended. When a product designer or manufacturer makes a mistake in the creation of a household appliance, it could put your life and wellness at risk.
Defective household products are often responsible for severe, life-altering injuries. Whether it was a mistake in design, an error at the factory, or the instructions for use were incorrect, negligence when creating and selling appliances has devastating consequences for trusting customers. Our defective household appliances lawyers at Mazin & Associates, PC believe designers and manufacturers need to be held liable for the injuries caused by their defective products. We have a commitment to fighting for justice in the courtroom, and getting our clients the restitution they deserve.
Commonly Defective Household Appliances
Typical household appliances turn out to be defective far too often. Defects are usually the result of a mistake during designing or manufacturing. All defective products have the potential to cause injury or harm when used. With that in mind, some defective appliances pose more of a threat than others do. The following everyday appliances have the ability to cause severe injuries when defective:
- Space heaters and furnaces
- Air conditioners
- Water heaters
- Hair dryers
- Gas grills
- Ovens and stovetops
- Washing machines and dryers
- Exercise equipment
Not only can these appliances cause physical bodily injury to victims, but they can also inflict severe property damage. Defective household appliances have the potential to cause explosions, fires, flooding, water damage, mold, electrocution, severe burns, and lacerations, among other things. As the victim in a defective household appliance case, you have the possibility of recovering damages for physical and mental pain and suffering, loss of income, medical expenses, and in the worst-case scenario, wrongful death.
