Chicago Defective Household Appliance Attorneys
From refrigerators to washers and dryers, appliances are an important part of everyday life in the modern American home. Because we use appliances so frequently, and because they are often located right in the heart of the home, it is especially important that they meet strict safety standards. When defective appliances make their way into people’s homes, they can destroy property and put families at serious risk of injury, or even death. An appliance as small as a microwave can burn down a significant portion of a house if it is defective enough to catch fire.
Manufacturers that sell defective appliances have breached the trust consumers place in them to create safe household products. At Karlin, Fleisher & Falkenberg, LLC, we believe these manufacturers should pay for the danger they create for families. If you, your family, or your property have been hurt by a defective appliance, our Chicago defective household appliance attorneys can help you hold negligent manufacturers accountable.
Household Appliances That Can Be Dangerous
Any appliance can put you and your family at serious risk if it explodes, electrocutes you, or catches fire. However, certain appliances can be particularly dangerous when defective because of their function, size, construction, or location in the home. Here are some types of appliances that have frequently faced consumer safety recalls because of dangerous defects:
- Water heaters
- Pressure cookers
- Hair dryers
Whether your defective appliance was one of these or another, the manufacturer may be liable for any injuries to you or your family and for any damage to your property. At Karlin, Fleisher & Falkenberg, LLC, we handle lawsuits for all types of defective household appliances.
