January 10, 2016 (FORT LAUDERDALE, FL) – Several department stores are reportedly continuing to sell allegedly faulty pressure cookers which can explode during use, causing extensive property damage and burn injuries. Despite increasing claims of injuries, the Power Pressure Cooker XL, made by Tristar Products, remains on display in many department stores throughout the United States.

Pressure Cooker Lawyer“As one of the leading attorneys representing victims of pressure cooker injuries, our law firm has seen an exponential increase in injuries as a result of the Power Pressure Cooker XL,” said Jason Turchin, Esq., Victim’s Rights Attorney.

These pressure cookers appear to have several faulty parts or defects, including: a defective safety pin, a lid which can pop off during use, directional lettering on the valve which can melt off or disappear over time, a valve which can get stuck, 001and other possible defects.

A former client of the Law Offices of Jason Turchin was injured years later in a slip and fall at WalMart. After he brought a lawsuit against the store, Walmart served a subpoena on the victim’s prior counsel to produce his entire file, less any privileged documents. Immediately upon receiving the subpoena, our law firm filed a Motion to Quash the Subpoena and for a Protective Order.

As we explained to the Court, the  Law Offices of Jason Turchin was a former attorney for the Plaintiff who received a subpoena to produce certain records obtained during the course of the representation. We objected to the subpoena on the grounds that the request directed to it would violate its former client’s privacy rights, and all information sought through the subpoena was either work-product or attorney-client privilege, or involved confidential settlement discussions and/or communications.

Moreover, we argued that any public records requested by the Defendant are equally available to them as to our former client, and would cause undue burden and hardship to produce, and unnecessary expense to produce any such records in our possession.
