In 2006, the Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) issued an important warning to anyone living in a snowy area: certain Craftsman, Troy-Bilt, and Yard Machines snow throwers were causing serious injuries to consumers due to a manufacturing defect. Lake Geneva defective product lawyers Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ®, have been following the case closely ever since.
The CPSC’s warning concerned the plastic wheel coverings on these makes of snow throwers. Research had shown that these coverings can suddenly explode, leading to serious injuries such as broken fingers and deep skin lacerations.
MTD Manufacturing responded to the warning by issuing an immediate recall of Troy-Bilt, Yard Machines, and Craftsman snow throwers. Although hundreds of thousands of machines were pulled from shelves, many remain in people’s garages to this day. Our Lake Geneva defective snow blower lawyers are committed to helping injured victims of these machines win the compensation they deserve.
The recalled snow throwers were sold between July 2004 and March 2006. They typically cost between $500 and $800 and were available at local stores around the United States, as well as major chains such as Sears and Kmart. If you think you may own one of these machines, check with the manufacturer right away or contact Lake Geneva defect snow thrower attorneys Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ®, at 800-242-2874.
If you or a loved one has been injured by one of these products, you may be eligible to receive compensation from the responsible parties. The pain and suffering you have experienced, along with the medical bills and lost wages due to missed work, are not your fault. They should not have to be your problem, either.
