Heating Pad Burns

Heating pads, like those from Sunbeam, offer numerous health benefits and can keep you from shivering during the cold winter months, but these products are often more dangerous than we’d like to think. In some cases, these products are manufactured poorly, with lesser materials and a lack of emphasis on user safety, which has led to many products overheating to dangerous temperatures during use. Whether the unit fails to turn off automatically or it’s unable to regulate the temperature, the harm is all the same, as the manufacturer could have prevented the damage by putting some forethought into their design and production process. Unfortunately, there have already been cases of users sustaining painful injuries when their defective heating pad overheats, and there may be more unless there’s a formal recall that removes them from store shelves.  

One case of injury involved an older woman whose heating pad caught fire underneath her body while she was asleep. While she was able to move away from the flames, she did walk away from the incident with third-degree burns and an expensive hospital bill, all because the manufacturer behind her heating pad failed to properly safety-test the product prior to sale. Many other stories involve similar circumstances, but you should know that the manufacturer's negligence isn’t your burden to bear. By teaming up with a skilled attorney, you can file a lawsuit against the at-fault organization and recover the compensation you deserve for the hardship you’ve endured.

At Morgan & Morgan, we’re committed to helping the victims of dangerous and defectives recover their damages and hold the organization that caused the harm accountable for their actions. Negligent manufacturers place unsafe products within the homes of the customers who support their business, and for them to care little about your safety is nothing short of an unacceptable offense. Our product liability attorneys have the necessary experience, knowledge, and resources to confidently deliver you the best results in your case, making us an undeniable asset in your pursuit of rightful compensation.

  • Which Heating Pad Products Are Dangerous For Use?

    While not all heating pads are unsafe for their intended purpose, some contain design or manufacturing defects that can cause injury to the user. One popular brand of heating pads, Sun Beam, is one of the more dangerous brands, as there have been numerous reports of the products overheating or catching fire during use. In fact, one woman was injured by her Sun Beam heating pad after she suffered a grand mal seizure while using the product. She lost consciousness, and the product failed to turn off automatically, leaving her with serious burn injuries that required medical treatment. 

    Sun Beam should have enforced stronger safety regulations into their manufacturing process to avoid a situation like this. Instead, they chose to act negligently, exposing their customer base to a risk of becoming injured in the safety of their own homes. Although Sun Beams products are known to contain defects, there are potentially other products that stock shore shelves with manufacturing problems, and it’s only a matter of time before they cause harm to the people that use them. You should do diligent research on any heating pad product you purchase to keep you and your family safe from product liability violations.

  • How Can an Attorney Help With a Defective Product?

    Product liability lawyers exist to help the victims of dangerous and defective products mitigate the consequences of the damage they’ve sustained. If you find yourself as a victim, you’re likely stressed, hurting, and confused about your next step, but having a trusted attorney by your side can help set you in the right direction. They’ll handle the majority of the legal proceedings, including the first step of filing the lawsuit, and act as a buffer between you and the at-fault organization. Additionally, your attorney will ensure that all your paperwork is complete and in order, allowing you to sit back and relax while they work their magic.

    Some individuals may choose to forgo retaining an attorney, but this is essentially a gamble. You never know what tactics and strategies the opposing party will use against you, and without an attorney, they can potentially force you into accepting a diminished settlement offer. In fact, some organizations will see someone’s decision to proceed individually as a weakness, even if it isn’t, and attempt to capitalize on your situation for their own benefit. By teaming up with an attorney, you’ll always have someone in your corner fighting for your best interests and, most importantly, someone who understands how to maximize the compensation you deserve.

    In the most difficult moments of your life, Morgan & Morgan has your back. Product liability violations happen every day, but that doesn’t mean that we, as consumers, have to stand for it. Manufacturers like Sun Beam need to prioritize their customer's safety if they wish to continue doing business, even if it isn’t financially viable for them in the short term. At the end of the day, the health and wellbeing of an organization's customer base are more important than its profit margin, but it seems that these negligent manufacturers aren’t seeing the bigger picture. That’s why it’s so important to fight back against dangerous and defective products, as a successful lawsuit brought against the at-fault manufacturer can deter other companies from making the same mistake.

    If you were harmed by a Sunbeam heating pad or any other defective heating pad product, our attorneys are only a phone call away. With over 700+ trial-ready attorneys, offices from coast to coast, and resources that other firms can only dream of, it’s easy to see which law firm is right for you and your situation: Morgan & Morgan.
