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.

What Kind of Damages Are Available in an RV Cooker Burn Injury Lawsuit?
In an RV stove burn injury lawsuit, the available damages may vary depending on the circumstances of the case and the jurisdiction in which the lawsuit is filed.
Damages can generally be categorized into two main types: compensatory and punitive.
- Medical Expenses: This includes the cost of medical treatment, hospitalization, surgeries, prescription medications, physical therapy, and any other healthcare-related costs associated with the burn injury.
- Lost Wages: If the burn injury caused the victim to miss work, they may be entitled to compensation for the income they lost during their recovery period.
- Property Damage: If personal property was damaged in the RV fire or due to the burn injury, the victim may be compensated for repair or replacement costs.
- Pain and Suffering: This includes compensation for the physical pain, emotional distress, and mental anguish experienced as a result of the burn injury.
- Punitive Damages: In some cases, where the defendant’s conduct is particularly egregious, reckless, or intentional, punitive damages may be awarded. These damages are intended to punish the defendant and deter similar behavior in the future.
It’s important to note that the availability and calculation of damages can vary by jurisdiction, and they depend on the specific facts and circumstances of the case.
A successful lawsuit will require proving liability and demonstrating the extent of the damages suffered. It’s advisable to consult with a personal injury attorney to understand your rights and options and to determine the potential damages you may be entitled to seek in your specific situation.
