How To Get Pressure Cooker Burn Injury Claim Help

People often think of pressure cookers as being 'safe' or 'harmless'. The truth is that pressure cookers, when defective or poorly designed, can become unstable and explode while in use. This explosion can cause terrible injuries such as burns to your skin and maybe even broken bones. Our pressure cooker lawyers have handled numerous burn injury lawsuits.

When pressure cookers explode, they usually do so suddenly and without any warning. Injuries from pressure cookers are usually very serious because of the high pressure that can cause objects to fly through the air at a very fast rate.

Instant Pot Pressure Cooker Explosion

Instant Pot is manufactured by a company called Instant Brands Inc. They design pressure cookers that are supposed to be easy to use and less likely to explode. Recently, however, reports have come in about pressure cookers suddenly exploding while being used. One report claims that Instant Pot pressure cooker exploded when the lid was removed from the unit. The user suffered burns on her face, head, neck hands and chest.

Our pressure cooker lawyers have handled numerous burn injury cases against Instant Brands.

Gourmia Pressure Cooker Explosion

Another example where a pressure cooker suddenly exploded occurred with a Gourmia pressure cooker. A man picked up his pressure cooker after it had finished cooking something inside it. When he tried to open it with the handle after releasing all of the steam, the pressure cooker lid somehow came off and hot pressure from inside exploded onto his face, chest and hands.

Power Pressure Cooker Explosion

The Power pressure cooker was advertised on TV as being one of the best pressure cookers available on today's market. The ad stated that this pressure cooker is so safe you can even wash it in a dishwasher. In reality though, these pressure cookers have caused serious burns to people who have used them. Our Tristar pressure cooker attorneys were lead counsel in IN RE TRISTAR PRESSURE COOKER LITIGATION in federal court in NJ.

In one pressure cooker lawsuit, a woman alleged she suffered second degree burns when the pressure cooker she used suddenly exploded. She claims that she followed all of the pressure cooker instructions when using it, so there was no reason for it to explode in her hands and chest area.

Sunbeam Crock Pot Explosion

Our pressure cooker lawyers are co-lead counsel in a class action filed against Sunbeam Products for alleged defective Crockpot Multicooker pressure cookers. Our firm has handled numerous Crockpot pressure cooker lawsuits against Sunbeam Products on behalf of consumers allegedly burned by scalding liquids from the Crockpot Multicooker.

Fagor Pressure Cooker Explosion

Fagor pressure cookers are also known to cause pressure cooker explode injuries to people who do not handle them carefully. One woman decided to try out a Fagor pressure cooker because she had heard about how popular they were becoming . The pressure cooker exploded when she went to open it after releasing the steam and burned her hand very badly, requiring hospitalization for treatment.

Electric Pressure Cooker Explosion Injuries

With product liability lawsuits for injuries from pressure cookers on the rise, consumers need to know what safety standards pressure cookers must meet in order to prevent pressure cooker explosion injuries. Pressure cooker manufacturers are required to meet pressure cooker design and manufacturing safety standards. Pressure cooker design standards include pressure cookers having pressure relief valves, pressure gauges or pressure indicators, pressure cookers that can limit pressure inside the pot when it reaches an unsafe level, sturdy lid locks to prevent opening while there is still pressure built up inside the pressure cooker, safe materials in both the cooking vessel used in the pressure cooker and all other parts of the pressure cooker, and others. Manufacturers who produce pressure cookers must not use defective materials when creating these products.
