Gree Dehumidifier Fire Wrongful Death Lawsuit Lawyers 

– SERVING CLIENTS NATIONWIDE

When you purchase a home appliance like a dehumidifier, you reasonably expect it to function as designed.  Consumers do not expect that these devices will cause fires that endanger the lives of their family members or their homes.  Many people leave dehumidifiers operating in their basement to prevent mold.  Because this means these appliances often will be left unattended when in use, defective dehumidifiers could pose a danger of overheating and causing fires if they are defective.  The consequences of using one of these faulty devices could result in the tragic death of a loved one.

Gree, a manufacturer of popular dehumidifiers, has recalled over 3.4 million of these devices because of overheating and fires.  By the time Gree announced a recall of their defective dehumidifiers, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) had received reports of 450 fires and nearly $20 million in property damage.  While no official reports of fatalities have been made public to this point, the high number of fires and the significant number of devices sold make it likely that their will be Gree dehumidifier-related deaths.  If your family member has died in a fire or from smoke inhalation caused by a defective Gree dehumidifier, you might have a right to financial compensation.

The Law Offices of Jason Turchin, Esq. has a proven track record of taking on large corporations that endanger the public with defective products and their insurance carriers.  Our law firm is currently reviewing property damage, personal injury, and wrongful death claims arising from dehumidifier fires.  If you have lost someone you loved in a fire started by a dehumidifier, we welcome the opportunity to talk to you and to advise you on steps to ensure you do not diminish the value of your claim.  Call our national defective product law firm today at (888) 99-VICTIM for a free consultation and case evaluation.

Damages Recoverable in a Wrongful Death Lawsuit

The precise damages you are entitled to receive in a wrongful death lawsuit against Gree and other companies involved in designing, manufacturing, and selling their defective dehumidifiers will depend on the specific facts and the law of your jurisdiction.  Generally, damages associated with a wrongful death claim fall into two broad categories.

The first type of damages is intended to compensate the decedent for his or her personal harm. These might include:

  • Medical expenses
  • The decedent’s pain and suffering from the fire until death
  • Lost wages
  • Funeral/burial costs

The second type of damage is intended to compensate designated immediate family members for their own losses caused by the death of the decedent, such as:

  • Lost financial support from the time of injury to retirement
  • Loss of love and companionship of a spouse or guidance of a parent

These damages can vary depending on the law of your jurisdiction, so you should seek legal advice to learn more about the damages in your specific case.

Understanding Who Should Be Named in Your Gree Defective Product Lawsuit

This type of defective product lawsuit can be complicated because multiple parties might need to be named in the filing.  While Gree manufactured the defective devices, other companies might also be liable.  Consumers who are injured or killed by defective products often can pursue claims against multiple entities involved in the design, manufacture, or distribution of a defective product or its faulty components. This case is further complicated because Gree is a Chinese company, and its products were sold by other companies under their own trade names, which include the following:

  • Soleus Aire
  • Fellini
  • GE
  • Seabreeze
  • Norpole
  • Premiere
  • Kenmore
  • SuperClima
  • Danby
  • De’Longhi
  • Fedders
  • Frigidaire
