The Lyon Firm is investigating burn injury claims and fire accidents related to recalled Dometic stoves and defective RV cookers. Joe Lyon has experience in product liability and consumer safety lawsuits. Call for a free consultation.
Dometic Corporation is recalling over 47,000 3-burner cooking stoves due to a gas leak and fire risk. The saddle valve securing bolt may be overtightened on the Dometic stoves, possibly damaging the o-ring seal and leading to a continuous gas leak.
Notification letters have been mailed to owners of affected domestic owned units. Owners are urged to check the model number on their stove to see if they have a recalled stove. Owners of RVs equipped with a stove can contact their dealer for more information, and are encouraged to stop using the stoves.
How do you know if your RV stove has been recalled? If the date on the stove production lot is October 2020 or later, check the data label of the cooker. The data label should be provided together with the cooker manual or found on the bottom of the cooker.
Due to the gas leak potential, fire risks are increased and a flame formation can occur around the regulators. Explosions and fires are not uncommon when defective propane stoves leak. If you have a Dometic propane stove that has been recalled, close the valve and keep it closed.

Each year in the United States, thousands of dangerous consumer products are recalled by federal safety agencies like the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for posing fire and burn hazards to consumers.
Too often, dangerous products are recalled only after victims report injuries or after legal action has been imposed on the companies responsible for releasing the dangerous and defective products.
Commonly recalled and defective products that can lead to accidents and burn injuries include space heaters, pressure cookers, recreational vehicles, e-cigs, lithium battery packs, guns, cooking sprays and automobile components.
Following a burn injury where you suspect there was negligence or a product defect, contact an experienced catastrophic injury and product liability lawyer.
Joe Lyon has experience developing evidence in burn injury cases through the use of design engineers and medical professionals to present quality arguments on the plaintiff’s behalf. This work has resulted in significant settlements to recover medical costs, lost wages and pain and suffering.
Burn Hazards Lawsuits
A serious burn injury may leave permanent disfigurement and scarring, and the matter of compensation should be discussed with a lawyer qualified in complex personal injury claims.
The legal recourses from an accident will depend on the specific circumstances, and what kind of defective product caused the burn injury. In addition to punitive damages filed against a negligent manufacturer, a victim may deserve compensation for pain and suffering, past and future medical costs, lost past and future earnings, and a loss of quality of life.
Compensation for burn injuries involve most of the same damages that encompass other personal injury cases. But since burn injuries can be extraordinarily painful and can lead to severe disfigurement, a liable defendant must compensate a plaintiff for physical pain the burn causes, and also the intense emotional pain a disfigured burn victim suffers with embarrassment, depression, or post-traumatic stress reactions likely caused by an accident and injury.
Litigation involving burn injuries often arises from more complex causes based in product liability or employer negligence. The origin of the cause of the injury will almost always requires forensic review.
