The Downtown LA Law firm is dedicated to protecting the rights in individuals who have suffered serious injuries caused by a defective product. Our product liability litigators are actively investigating claims against manufacturers of gel candles causing severe burn injuries and fatalities.
Recently there has been a surge in serious burn injuries caused by scented gel candles. In one such instance a 14 year old teenager was severely burned when he attempted to fill a gel candle that was already lit. On Jun 22nd of 2012 the CPSF issues a nationwide recall of several gel candles including Napa’s Fire Burners ceramic pots.
Filing a Product Liability Lawsuit Against Manufacturers of scented gel candles:
Generally there are three ways a plaintiff attorney can prove the existence of a defect in a manufactured product. (1) Defect in the original design of the product: This can be proven by showing the court the existence of already exiting designs for candles that presented a reduction in the probability of harm consumers.
(2) Defect in the manufacturing process of the product: There several ways in which a product liability case based on manufacturing defect can be proven. One way is to show that the final manufactured product is markedly different and as a result more dangerous than its original intended design.
(3) Labeling defect: A cause of action for a defect in the labeling of a product can be proven by showing that the manufacturers failed to place warning signs regarding the known dangers associated with the usual use of the product.
