Appliance Accidents

Jacksonville Products Liability Attorneys Fight For Damages Due To Defective Appliances

Holding Manufacturers Accountable For Your Injuries

Where would we be without washing machines, dryers, stoves, refrigerators, and microwaves? Our modern existence depends upon these and other appliances commonly found in our homes. We often take appliances for granted until they malfunction and cause serious injury or significant property damage.

If you’e been injured by a defective product through no fault of your own, our experienced products liability attorneys at Fallgatter Catlin & Varon, P.A., hold the negligent parties accountable to recover the maximum possible damages for your claim. You have a right to expect the appliance you’e paid good money for to be safe when it’s used as intended. If you’e suffered burns, cuts, or any other type of injury from a defective appliance, we fight to get the compensation you need and deserve.

Representing Floridians Failed By Appliance Manufacturers

Manufacturers have been known to cut corners where safety is concerned, failing to adequately test their appliances so they can be marketed more quickly, thereby increasing their profit margins. Appliances that are known to cause injuries when defective include:

  • Toasters
  • Microwave ovens
  • Dishwashers
  • Clothes and hair dryers
  • Air conditioners
  • Refrigerators

Under Florida law, an appliance manufacturer, distributor or seller can be held liable for damages if that appliance is found to be unreasonably dangerous when used as intended. Manufacturers are legally responsible for making and marketing appliances that are safe; they’re also responsible for adequately warning consumers of inherent dangers or known defects. If you’e been injured by a defective appliance or by one that carried insufficient warnings, we can file a products liability claim on your behalf. In that claim, we prove that the appliance was:

  • Defective in design
  • Defective in manufacture
  • Contained no or insufficient warnings as to safe use

By taking the time to thoroughly investigate your claim and the defective product itself, we can show that:

  • Your appliance was defective in one or more of these areas
  • Your injuries or monetary loss were caused by those defects
  • You were using the appliance as it was intended to be used when the injury or damage occurred.

We know that appliance manufacturers will mount a strong defense of their products in a liability suit; we can assure you that we’ll fight just as strongly for your right to recover damages from them.
