What are common product liability claims for pressure cooker injury lawsuits?
If somebody is injured as a result of their normal use of a pressure cooker, a product liability lawyer will generally look to see whether there was a manufacturing defect, a design defect, or an issue with the instruction manual or warning labels on the pressure cooker itself. Product liability laws in many states may hold that a manufacturer is strictly liable for any injuries and expenses incurred by the user injured by pressure cooker. Design defect may exist where the material used in the locking mechanism or lid are not sufficient keep the pressure cooker locked when a user tries to open it if the pressure cooker still has pressure inside of it. In some cases, the strike plate could bend, or the lid can detach while the unit is pressurized. In some design defect claims, if the lid is not properly secured, electric pressure cooker can still cause the lid to burst off once sufficient pressure is in the unit to make it unstable. This can cause hot liquid to fly across the road and strike anybody in its way. A manufacturing defect me exist if a unit was not put together properly according to its own instruction or direction. A warning defect me exist if the warning isn't adequate to properly worn customers of the dangers or foreseeable misuse of the product.
