Lawyers for Those Injured by Dangerous Household Electronics in Elmhurst and Addison

Modern household appliances and electronic devices provide a number of conveniences that make life easier for American families. Many of us start our day by turning on the coffeemaker, and we often wind down at the end of the night by watching high-definition shows or sports on television. Similarly, refrigerators and dishwashers are staples in virtually every kitchen. With such amenities offering so many benefits, it can be hard to imagine that there are also many dangers associated with household appliances and electronics.

Each year, thousands of people are injured by defective, dangerous, or malfunctioning appliances. At Kaiser Hafezi Law, our experienced personal injury lawyers offer trusted guidance and dependable representation to victims hurt by household electronics and appliances. We understand the challenges involved in household product liability cases, and we know what it takes to get results. Our attorneys have recovered millions of dollars in settlements and verdicts for our clients, and we will work hard to get you the compensation you need to help you and your family move forward.

Household Appliance Dangers

There are many dangers that are associated with household appliances, and virtually any appliance or electronic device can cause injuries if it is not designed, manufactured, installed, or used properly. Some appliances, for example, have design defects that make them prone to tipping over, which could cause serious injuries. In some cases, professional installation is required to ensure the appliance does not tip, but if the installers were not properly trained, tipping accidents could occur anyway. Other appliances may cause burn injuries due to manufacturing defects related to insulating materials. Any appliance or device that runs on electricity could short out and electrocute a consumer.

The lawyers at Kaiser Hafezi Law are equipped to handle a full range of household product liability cases, including those related to appliances and devices such as:

  • Refrigerators
  • Stoves, ovens, and ranges
  • Furnaces
  • Washing machines
  • Gas and electric clothes dryer
  • Dishwashers
  • Countertop appliances, including microwave ovens, toasters, coffee makers, air fryers, and slow cookers
  • Outdoor grills
  • Televisions
  • Home computers

Protecting Your Rights in Cook County, IL

If you or a loved one has been injured by an appliance or electronic device, your first step should be to seek medical attention for your injuries. Then, you should contact the team at Kaiser Hafezi Law so that we can go right to work on your behalf. We will begin by conducting a full investigation into the situation surrounding your injuries, as well as the device or appliance that caused them. Our lawyers will review product testing records, recall notices, installer training programs, and any other available information that might help us narrow down how the incident occurred and what defects caused it.

Once we have identified the defective or dangerous element, we will determine which party or parties may have contributed to the existence of the defect. For example, if the appliance was poorly designed or put together improperly, the manufacturer might be liable for your injuries. If a contracted installation company failed to install the appliance properly in your home, that company could be liable as well. If the defective or dangerous element was caused by a combination of problems, multiple parties could share in the liability for your injuries.

At Kaiser Hafezi Law, we know that consumer product companies have a great deal to lose if their products are found to be defective or dangerous. As a result, they will often do everything they can to make product liability claims go away quickly. In many cases, this means that a negligent manufacturer is likely to offer a fast settlement—one that might seem generous at first—and often with strings attached, such as a non-disclosure agreement. A first offer, however, is usually significantly less than you will need to put your life back together. We will not accept a settlement that fails to meet your needs, and we will continue to fight until you get the full compensation deserve under the law.
