Defective Kitchen Appliances

When you buy a new kitchen appliance, you expect that it has been adequately tested by the manufacturer to ensure that it is safe and was not negligently made. If it does end up having a serious defect, not only has the manufacturer violated your trust, you risk serious injury or damage to your property. The home should be a safe place, not somewhere you have to worry about being injured by products designed to be used every day.

Negligent manufacturing or faulty materials can cause kitchen appliances to pose a variety of threats to their users or other inhabitants of a household. Injuries caused by defects can lead to expensive medical bills or missed time at work. If you would like to discuss the possibility of compensation due to defective appliances, contact the Lake Geneva personal injury attorneys of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ®, S.C today.
