Cincinnati Product Liability Lawyer Representing Cooking Spray Burn Victims Nationwide in a personal injury Conagra Lawsuit
Kitchen burn injuries are not uncommon, though most people would never expect that their cooking spray can would explode and send flames out in a huge fireball. But that is what is happening across the country in a series of terrible PAM can explosion incidents that result in severe burn injury lawsuits.
PAM and other cooking sprays have been targeted in product liability and personal injury lawsuits nationwide. The Lyon Firm is currently representing one Ohio burn victim, and is accepting similar cases nationwide.
Burn injury reports are coming in from around the country, in commercial and residential kitchens. Cans of PAM and Wellsley Farms cooking spray could potentially be dangerous in the very place they are meant to be used: around stoves and other heat sources. Conagra has denied the product is dangerous, though the number of burn victims and PAM can explosions tells a different story.
Consumer safety advocates and the recent Lyon Firm Conagra lawsuit allege that PAM cooking spray bottles are inherently dangerous being pressurized and contain flammable propellants like butane or propane. Consumers have found out the hard way that these common products may explode in kitchens and cause fires and burn injuries. The Conagra lawsuit notes a lack of visible warning labels on PAM products, as well as potentially concealing the dangers of the common kitchen product.
Joe Lyon is a highly-rated Cincinnati product liability lawyer and Ohio personal injury attorney representing plaintiffs nationwide in a wide variety of consumer product liability claims.
After several safety concerns have been discovered by victims, and fire-related accidents reported in kitchens, lawsuits have been filed nationwide, targeting Conagra, the manufacturer of PAM cooking spray. Joe Lyon and others involved in the Conagra litigation alleges PAM constitutes a danger in the home and commercial kitchens.
Victims suffer severe burn injuries that cause disfigurement and scarring. If you have been injured by PAM or another cooking spray product, contact Joe Lyon, an experienced product liability lawyer, to investigate the incident, and to recover compensation related to medical expenses and pain and suffering.
The Lyon Firm specializes in product liability lawsuits, and is dedicated to representing injured plaintiffs in consumer safety cases. Defective cooking sprays made by Conagra and Sysco have injured many Americans who deserve compensation for the negligence of the responsible parties. Plaintiffs and consumer safety attorneys say Conagra has not properly warned consumers of the serious explosion and burn injury risks.
Conagra has also failed to recall their dangerous products from the market, and claims the cooking spray is safe for use, even after dozens of horrific burn injury accidents. If consumers cannot safely use a cooking spray in the kitchen, where can they use it? The company continues to sell their product with little concern for the American consumer.
The first question many plaintiffs and consumers are asking when they witness a PAM can explode is, “Did I do something wrong?” The answer is probably not. Every case is different, and Conagra would like to place the blame on consumers, but when a cooking spray can explodes, it is due to poor design and a failure to warn consumers of a serious fire and burn injury risk.
Why Do PAM Cans Explode? Cooking spray cans explode because they contain flammable chemicals, and when a compressed aerosol can is heated by nearby flames or ovens, they may ignite. The company’s can design may have also been defective in some cases.
What Kind of Lawsuit Can I File? Injured plaintiffs who have suffered an injury related to any defective product, not only defective cooking sprays, can consider filing a product liability lawsuit. Plaintiffs may be able to recover compensation for medical costs, pain and suffering, emotional distress and lost wages.
