Kitchen Appliance Defects

We always seem to feel most safe in our own homes. This is understandable, as your place of residence is supposed to be a place where you can be free from the stresses and dangers of the outside world. Defective household products can violate this sense of safety by presenting unexpected risks in the form of objects we use every day. Kitchen appliances and tools are no exception.

Often, defective products are discovered in testing or by consumers and a recall is quickly issued. Other times, dangerous defects are missed. The manufacturer may be required to provide compensation for injuries or damages caused by a defective product. If you have been injured by an appliance you believe may be defective, contact the Waukesha personal injury attorneys of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C.® to explore your legal options.
