Pressure Cooker Burn Injuries

Modern programmable pressure cookers have been advertised with a number of safety features, which are supposed to make it impossible for the lid to come off or be accidentally removed while the contents are under pressure. However, devastating accidents involving pressure cookers have occurred in recent years, often due to a complete failure of these faulty products.

The incidents can be grouped into two categories: pressure cooker lids being removed manually while the contents are still under pressure, and pressure cooker lids blasting off after features designed to keep the lid on failed in one manner or another. In both instances, the results are the same, as the boiling hot contents are unexpectedly ejected from the pot.

These accidents can result in severe and permanent burns from pressure cooking, including injuries for family members, friends and children in the area where one of these products blew up, such as:

  • First Degree Burns
  • Second Degree Burns
  • Third Degree Burns
  • Dehydration
  • Organ Failure
  • Pneumonia
  • Hypotension (low blood pressure)
  • Sepsis
  • Permanent Disfigurement

Although there are available and affordable safety features that could prevent many of these pressure cooking injuries, manufacturers placed their desire for profits before the safety of users by failing to adequately design these products and overhyping the safety of their products, to make them more attractive to consumers during the recent boom in interest in pressure cooking.

Financial compensation and pressure cooker injury settlement may be available in many of these cases. To review a case for yourself or a loved one, contact Saiontz & Kirk, P.A. today.
