Cincinnati, Ohio Product Liability Attorney reviewing dangerous home heaters, space heater safety tips and burn injury prevention
Each winter brings cooler weather, and millions of American households supplement their heating with portable home heaters and space heating units. Many home heaters are a welcome appliance, though others can be very dangerous and present burn injury and home fire risks.
It is important to remain cautious with home heaters, and to practice basic space heater safety to prevent serious harm and potential fires. Fire prevention authorities have called space heaters the most serious home fire threat, and major household and workplace hazards.
Joe Lyon is a consumer safety attorney investigating burn injuries and home fires related to defective space heaters. Contact the Lyon Firm to review any burn injury or home fire case.
Around 25,000 house fires and 300 deaths are linked to space heaters each year, many of which are preventable. Space heaters are too often situated too close to flammable objects, or are defectively designed in the first place.
Thousands of people suffer serious burn injuries after making contact with a heater’s hot surface. Space hater safety is a critical part of owning and operating the appliance. Fire tests and fire prevention materials can assist consumers to decide on which products are safest, and which have poor safety records.
