Pressure Cooker Explosion Injury Lawyer

Cooking a meal for your family should not be a dangerous activity. Yet, there have been many people injured by defective appliances in the kitchen. Recently, there have been instances of serious injuries caused by pressure cooker explosions. If you or a family member was injured due to a defective pressure cooker, you may be eligible to receive compensation from the manufacturer for your injuries.

Pressure cookers are designed to offer fast meal preparation for the busy consumer. They are advertised as a quick way to make meals that would take hours longer in the oven or a slow cooker. The method used is pressure and steam, which is confined inside a pot with a locked and sealed lid. Before the lid can be opened, steam is released, and it then should be safe to open the cooker.

Defective pressure cookers have flaws that cause too much pressure to build inside. There have been instances of these appliances exploding when used as instructed or boiling food propelling out when the lid is removed. These design flaws have caused serious injuries to individuals near the appliances, resulting in devastating burns to adults and children.

Burn Injuries from Defective Pressure Cookers

The temperature inside pressure cookers brings food above the boiling point, often to about 250 degrees. When a defective pressure cooker explodes, the contents can fly for several feet or more, spraying scalding food and liquid on anyone nearby. The high temperatures can cause serious, painful burns to all areas of the body that may require expensive medical treatment and result in disfiguring scarring.

If you have had a pressure cooker explode when using it as intended and it caused serious burns to you or a family member, contact Ligori & Ligori Attorneys at Law. We can help you determine whether you can seek compensation from the manufacturer for your injuries. Call our office in Tampa to schedule a free consultation to discuss your claim.

What Our Happy Clients say

I just wanted to take a quick time out to say something nice about Mr. Tim Sanders. This man spent an entire year handling my affairs like he was my personal friend. He went to bat for me, and I could tell he cared a great deal about me, my case directly, and he clearly takes a great deal of pride and integrity into his work. You hear a lot of negative about lawyers in this world. Tim, was a tireless worker to get me what I deserved. This guy does his living from the heart. I made a really great choice when I called Tim. My wife and I are so thankful we did.

My experience with Ligori & Ligori was excellent. Their attention to detail and genuine concern for my situation showed that they truly cared about me as a client. The staff was professional, knowledgeable, and kept me informed throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend Ligori & Ligori to anyone needing help and direction after an auto accident.

Ligori & Ligori is an amazing law firm. The employees take time with you to make sure that you truly understand the details of your case and why things are done a certain way to produce the best results. When calling, I always spoke to a person and on the off chance that a message was left, I received a return call promptly. I highly recommend Ligori & Ligori.

Mr. Ligori's firm took the time to explain the legal process and find another attorney in another county. If this law firm can go the extra distance for not even their client, imagine the dedication and expertise if you were their client.

Angela K.

I got into an auto accident and hired Mr. Sanders to represent me a couple weeks later after my insurance company’s lackluster performance to help get me back to normal. I was nervous, this was my first accident with injury and I had never hired a lawyer before. Well let me say, my expectations were met and exceeded, every step of the way. Ligori and Sanders were focused on me and my health. They were polite, prompt, and went to bat for me when the insurance company was not. Not only would I recommend Ligori and Sanders to anyone who needs them, I would insist.
