Many burn hazard lawsuits and product liability cases have had a positive impact on public health and safety, and we have witnessed improved lives and future injuries prevented as companies are forced to remove products and change designs and warnings as a result of taking legal action.
Product defect lawsuits often contain causes of action for strict liability, negligence, and breach of warranty. In short, if a product is determined to be defective by a court of law, the company is liable for any foreseeable injuries that are in-part caused by the defective condition of the product. Following a serious injury, contact an attorney to review your case.
Experts and attorneys review a few factors when determining the risks associated with the design of a product like gas cans: (1) the magnitude of the risk of burn injury; (2) ordinary consumer awareness of the risk for burn injury; (3) the likelihood of causing burn injury; (4) the violation of a private or public safety standard; and (5) the consumer’s expectation of the performance of the product and level of explosion danger.
Yes. To determine whether a product is defective due to inadequate warnings or instructions, evidence must be presented to prove:
There are thousands of recalls each year involving dangerous consumer products, but in most cases consumers are unaware that the product they purchased has been recalled. Some gas cans have been recalled, and others have not. But any product that causes injury, whether recalled or not, can be the subject of a product liability claim.

The manufacturers of consumer products have a duty to foresee potential injury and properly test products before they are released to the public.
Companies must also properly warn consumers of any risks associated with their products. Any failure to protect consumers that results in accidents and burn injury can lead to lawsuits filed by plaintiffs and their product liability lawyer
