STOVE TIPPING ACCIDENTS
By their very nature, young children are incredibly curious. If you take your eye off of a child for even a split second, they may end up climbing on furniture or on an appliance. As this is a well-known fact, appliance manufacturers have a duty to ensure that their products are reasonably safe for the average American home. Unfortunately, accidents — including stove tipping accidents — remain a serious problem; our Los Angeles stove tipping lawyers see this occur far too often.
According to a study conducted by the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), tipping appliances result in nearly 2,000 documented emergency room trips every year. Stove tipping is one of the leading causes of these accidents. If your child was injured or killed as a result of a tipped over stove, it is imperative that you consult with an experienced Los Angeles stove tipping accident attorney immediately.
STOVE TIPPING CAN RESULT IN CATASTROPHIC INJURIES
With stove tipping cases, there are two major issues. First, if a child climbs on the stove door, even relatively slight tipping of the appliance could send boiling liquid or other substances directly onto them, thereby resulting in a severe scalding injury. Alternatively, the entire stove could tip over, leading to a potentially deadly crushing accident. In either case, a tipping stove may lead to a catastrophic accident. Some of the most common stove tipping accident injuries include:
- Severe burns (including second and third-degree burns);
- Broken and fractured bones;
- Concussions, TBIs, and other brain injuries;
- Spinal cord injuries; and
WHO CAN BE HELD LIABLE FOR A STOVE TIPPING ACCIDENT?
Generally, stove tipping claims are brought against product manufacturers or appliance installers. Though, other negligent parties can sometimes be held legally liable as well. Notably, stove tipping accidents can be prevented. A very inexpensive safety product called an ‘anti-tip bracket’ can keep appliances from tipping over. In addition, a properly designed appliance should not be able to be tipped by small children. If your child was injured as a result of stove tipping, an experienced Los Angeles product liability attorney will help you determine who bears liability for the accident. Your family deserves justice.
