Everyone loves a new toy. Even when we grow up and become adults, no matter how much responsibility we have, or how many things we have going on, people love getting fun new “toys.” As we get older, these items become more complicated, and a lot of the time they are electrical devices of one kind or another: television sets, video game consoles, power tools, etc. In nearly all cases, these devices are perfectly safe as long as they are used correctly, but sadly there are a few incidents in which products that have been poorly designed or manufactured cause injury to consumers.
If you have suffered an injury that you believe was caused by a defective electrical product in your home, you should contact a product liability attorney as soon as possible. Lawyers at Fuicelli & Lee, P.C. are here to help. Call 303-355-7202 today for a free consultation at one of our offices in Denver, Longmont or Pueblo.
What Is an Electrical Product Defect?
Product liability is an area of law that is concerned with injury or damage that is caused by defective consumer products. Product defects generally fall into three possible categories: design defects, manufacture defects, and marketing defects, which may also be known as failure to warn. In product liability law, any of these three defects may leave a manufacturer open to liability if, as a result of the defect, someone is injured, or property is damaged.
When it comes to defective electrical consumer products, the greatest areas of concern are electrocution and fire. A relatively small number of people are electrocuted by consumer products, although even one death is too many. Fire danger, in terms of the number of accidents, is much more significant. Based on data provided by the National Fire Protection Association, thousands of fires start with consumer electrical products every year. Many of these fires cause injury or even death, and all of them cause some degree of property damage.
If you or a loved one have been injured or had property damage that was caused by a consumer electrical product that you believe to have been defective, speak with a defective product attorney right away.
