Cooking is a task carried out many times a day in homes all across the country and in Ohio. While accidents happen, most people exercise caution and care in the kitchen to prevent injuries. Most people wouldn’t expect a can of cooking spray to be the cause of a serious accident and probably wouldn’t view it as a dangerous product.
A woman from Cincinnati was seriously burned when a can of cooking spray she was using exploded. She is suing the manufacturer after the product exploded while it was near her stove. The explosion caused severe burns and physical deformity as well as pain and suffering.
The claim asserts that the cooking spray contains flammable ingredients such as propane, ethanol and liquid petroleum gas. The company denies that those ingredients are present. The woman is suing for an amount in excess of $75,000.
When a person goes into his or her kitchen to cook in Ohio, it is not unreasonable that he or she would expect that products designed to be used in the kitchen would be safe to use there. If a person in Ohio experiences an injury from such a product, he or she may wish to seek the counsel of an experienced personal injury attorney in determining what to do about the dangerous product. A knowledgeable attorney can review the case and help his or her client to determine if a civil suit is viable. A successfully litigated claim could help with medical expenses, lost wages and pain and suffering.
