Product burns may occur from the fault of the manufacturing company or the buyer. If the manufacturing company does not provide proper instructions or warning labels about the product, then the buyer could likely sustain a burn injury. If the buyer does not pay attention to the warning labels attached to the product, it is also likely that they will injure themself. Below, we will go more into detail about product burns and how they may occur.

If you have fallen victim to a faulty product causing you to sustain burn injuries, you may have a defective product liability claim on your hands. There are generally three types of product liability cases. These include:

defect. If you damaged these products yourself, you will not be eligible to file a claim.
Examples of a failure-to-warn claim include:
As stated before, the individual must suffer injuries primarily because of a failure-to-warn. If you are burned by a tea kettle, you would only qualify to file a failure-to-warn claim if the steam abruptly came out of the steam valve and burned you.
There are various types of defective products that can result in an individual getting burned. These may include, but are not limited to:
A burn injury due to a faulty product may result in either 1st degree, 2nd degree, or 3rd degree burns. It all depends on the intensity of the burn and how it makes contact with your skin.
