What kind of injuries can happen from a defective power adapter?A defective power adapter can be problematic for many reasons. For one, it is possible that there can be a fire that can start from exposed metals that are in outlets. If you leave the picture frame plugged in overnight or while you’re away on a trip, you stand the risk of a small electrical fire starting. This can of course be devastating if not contained immediately and can cause serious injuries and even death. Other less serious incidents can occur as well. When the adapter is plugged in, small children could go near the wires and suffer shocks. You also could be shocked if you try to remove the adapter from the wall without turning it off or without cutting the power to the strip. Electric shocks and electrical burns can cause various damage to the skin and nerves. Burns in particular can be very painful and cause the skin to blister and lose sensation. The scarring that can result from such damages may be permanent and never fade. You may require numerous surgeries and treatments, such as skin grafts, to help you along in the recovery process.
