People who use defective products sometimes suffer serious injuries, in which case the makers of the products and other parties within the chain of supply to the consumer could be held legally responsible. Texas consumers may be impacted by one particular defective product from Bed Bath & Beyond that was recently recalled. The product is a fan heater.
According to officials, KUL Fan Heaters have the potential to overheat and catch fire. Nearly 28,000 fan heaters were sold by the company in stores throughout the United States as well as online between Aug. and Oct. 2015. The heaters cost nearly $20.
The heaters are 9 inches long, 5 inches wide and 10.5 inches tall, and they weigh about two pounds. Those who have purchased one should stop utilizing it right away and get in touch with CE North America for directions on how to return it and get a refund. So far, there have been no reports of injuries in connection with the use of the defective fan heaters.
Those in Texas who have purchased dangerous products have the option of filing civil lawsuits seeking the reimbursement of monetary damages sustained as a result of their ordinary use of the products. A successfully presented defective product case may lead to a financial award, based upon a showing of negligence, and the monetary compensation may help to address the financial losses and pain and suffering caused by the use of the product. Awarded damages may also help to cover medical bills, the loss of wages and other damages as recognized under applicable state and federal laws.
