Products Liability: Have you been seriously injured by a defective and unreasonably dangerous product?

Any risk of serious injury or death is unreasonable and unacceptable if the risk could have been eliminated by reasonable accident prevention methods.

The value of your case: Depends upon how you were injured and whether you contributed to the injury. Generally, product liability cases are tough to fight. Scientific and mechanical expertise is required of the lawyer to understand the issues of the claim. As an engineer and a lawyer, T.O. Sanders is well-qualified.

Specific Defective Products: Products liability actions can be brought on all kinds of consumer goods such as motor vehicles, motor vehicle parts, tires, ladders, hospital beds and exploding gas cans.

1. Plastic gas containers can explode if held near an open flame. Experts say that a simple, wire mesh flame arrestor could make every gas can safe. Without a flame arrestor, a flame can travel into the gas can causing a bomb-like explosion. The explosion can shoot flaming gas in every direction causing catastrophic burns to those nearby. Dan Rather has reported on this.

2. Napa Home and Garden Firepots containing citronella fuel gel (wickless) can explode and cause severe burns. On June 13, 2011, the manufacturer stopped selling this item. See Here.
