After an Appliance Injury: The Right Legal Team to Win You Full Compensation

When we buy something, we expect it to work, and to be safe.

Unfortunately, though most appliances sold in the US are safe and reliable to use, many items still prove very unsafe, injuring thousands of children and adults every year.

The most common problem with a faulty or defective appliance is its electrical wiring or electrical components, which can result in electrical shocks, fires or explosions.

Common types of faulty appliances include:

  • Air conditioners
  • Ceiling fans
  • Coffee makers
  • Cooking appliances, such as can openers, blenders, crock pots, fryers, hotplates and waffle irons
  • Curling irons, straighteners and hair dryers
  • Dishwashers
  • Electrical items, such as electric blankets, heating pads, fans, knives, stoves, ranges, razors, shavers, space heaters, and water heaters
  • Refrigerators and freezers
  • Furnaces
  • Garage door openers
  • Gas-powered appliances, such as boilers, dryers, furnaces, ranges, stoves, and heaters
  • Irons
  • Lamps
  • Microwaves
  • Ovens, stoves and/or ranges
  • Radiators
  • Sewing machines
  • Smoke alarms
  • Steam irons
  • Toasters and toaster ovens
  • Wall ovens
  • Washing machines and dryers
  • Water kettles


An appliance injury case can be complex. It can be difficult to prove that the defective product was the direct cause of your injuries, particularly if the product has not yet been recalled. The claim will also need to establish whether the appliance designer, manufacturer, importer, distributor or retailer is the liable party.

Our dedicated appliance injuries lawyers will review your case and use their legal experience and skills to build the strongest possible claim. We are skilled at dealing with the arguments and defenses of product manufacturers, suppliers and distributors.

We have handled numerous appliance injuries cases, including those involving:
