What's the problem?

A pressure cooker can explode - causing severe injuries such as burns, glass shard wounds and permanent scarring. Today’s pressure cookers have safety features such as steam release valves and locking lids, but these safeguards can still fail and the device can explode. Defective devices should never be sold to the public.

Malfunctions indicating the device is ready to be opened, as well as defective rubber rings around the lip of the cooker, have harmed consumers. If a pressure cooker is opened before steam has adequately escaped, it can create an “explosion” of its contents. At temperatures in excess of 200 degrees, this can lead to severe burns to anyone in the vicinity of the pressure cooker. Pressure cooker manufacturers and distributors have failed to provide adequate warnings of these potential problems.

Accordingly, a rapid increase of pressure cooker lawsuits have been filed against multiple manufacturers and distributors. In addition, numerous recalls have been ordered across the country for inadequate assembly instructions and faulty production. Victims of pressure cooker explosions have recovered millions of dollars from manufacturers responsible for their injuries.  You deserve to be compensated for your injuries, lost wages, pain and suffering and medical bills.
