- Traumatic brain injuries
- Hearing loss

These injuries can require extensive medical treatment, resulting in significant medical bills and lost wages. In some cases, victims may require ongoing medical care and rehabilitation.
What to Do if You Are Injured by a Pressure Cooker
If you are injured by a pressure cooker, it is important to seek medical attention immediately. Even if your injuries appear minor, it is important to get a medical evaluation to ensure that there are no underlying issues. If you have received medical treatment, you should contact an experienced personal injury attorney to discuss your legal options.
It is important to keep the pressure cooker as evidence, as it can be used to support your case. Do not throw the pressure cooker away or make any modifications to it if possible. Instead, store it in a safe place and provide it to your attorney for analysis.
Product Liability Lawsuits Involving Pressure Cookers
When a pressure cooker explodes and causes injury, the manufacturer may be liable for the damages. In product liability cases, the manufacturer may be held responsible for defects in design, manufacturing, or marketing. Defects in design occur when the product is inherently dangerous due to its design. Defects in manufacturing occur when the product is improperly manufactured, resulting in a dangerous product
. Marketing defects occur when the manufacturer fails to provide adequate warning or instruction for use of the product.
In order to win a product liability case, the injured party must generally prove that the product was defective and that the defect caused the injury. This can be a complex process, often requiring the expertise of an experienced personal injury attorney.
