Do I Qualify for Compensation?
Aggressive Representation for Pressure Cooker Burn & Injury Victims
If you’ve been burned or suffered some other serious injury after your Tristar Products pressure cooker forced the hot contents to erupt from the cooker upon opening the lid, one question is certain to be on your mind: are you entitled to any compensation for your injuries? Potentially millions of defective pressure cookers have been sold to consumers who are unaware of the dangers these devices pose. Those who have been injured may be eligible to receive a financial compensation award to help them address their injuries and their recovery needs.
How Do I Know if I Am Entitled to Compensation?
Not everyone who purchased a Tristar Products pressure cooker is eligible to file a lawsuit against the manufacturer and seek compensation. The following questions are used to help determine whether you may be entitled to pursue a lawsuit against Tristar Products for pressure cooker-related losses:
- Did you own, borrow, or use a Tristar Products pressure cooker and can you provide evidence showing how you acquired this device?
- Did food and/or liquid erupt from the cooker when you attempted to remove the lid?
- Did this hot food and/or liquid cause you to suffer injuries such as burns?
- Did you use the pressure cooker according to the manufacturer’s instructions and directions?
- Did you have one or more losses – medical bills, missed days of work, etc. – as a result of the injuries you sustained from the pressure cooker?
If you answered “Yes” to each of these questions, then there is a strong likelihood that you are able to file a lawsuit against Tristar Products in order to recover compensation for your injuries. This is because the law holds manufacturers responsible for paying for the harm customers suffer as a result of defects in the manufacturers’ products. This includes compensation for actual, physical loses as well as pain and suffering and other emotional and mental harm.
The Importance of Timely Pursuing Compensation
In addition, your lawsuit needs to be filed within the appropriate statute of limitations. New Jersey, for example, generally gives those who are hurt by these defective pressure cookers two years from the date of their injury to file a lawsuit (although there are exceptions that can extend this time period). Each state, however, has its own statute of limitations that may be longer or shorter than New Jersey’s. It is important to check with your state’s laws.
Can You File a Lawsuit for Your Pressure Cooker Injuries?
If you or a loved one or family member were injured by an exploding pressure cooker or a pressure cooker whose lid could be opened even while the contents of the cooker were still under pressure, you may be entitled to compensation for any medical bills, surgical costs, prescription painkillers, lost income, scarring and disfigurement, and mental pain and anguish you may have suffered.
