Defending Those Involved In Injuries From Flammable Clothing

Most consumers are not sure what product liability law covers but would tend to think of such instances as defective products or toys, electrical appliances, and automobile defects that have the potential to cause injury. One of the less common aspects of product liability but is still very dangerous is the idea of flammable clothing. Apparel that has the potential to catch fire causes more than 4,000 injuries and over 100 deaths each year in the United States. The Consumer Product Safety Commission is a regulatory agency that reviews and approves various agencies and product standards as well as investigating substandard products.

The 1953 Flammable Fabrics Act sparked many other rules and regulations that impact manufacturers of all types of clothing for children as well as adults. Despite several attempts at enforcing a standardization of these product and fabric regulations, senseless deaths still occur on a fairly regular basis. The most recent recall was enacted after a series of bathrobes were found to have been produced in another country and were not considered safe under the Flammable Fabrics Act. Over 162,000 robes from a single brand manufacturer were recalled after they were found to be made from substandard materials. Fire retardant clothing saves lives when a fire breaks out or when daily activities expose wearers to sparks or excessive heat.

Manufacturers who use inadequate fibers and are not dedicated to preserving the safety of general consumers are liable for the potential damage and injuries that could result from their products. When a consumer or their loved one has been the victim of a defective product or flammable clothing they may be entitled to receive compensation. It is important to conserve any remaining portion of the clothing and consult an experienced personal injury attorney that is well versed in the flammable fabric genre. Making quick contact with a law firm is the best chance a consumer has to resolve the situation with the most beneficial results. Clothing made outside the realm of federal regulations is not only dangerous but is also illegal and the makers must be held accountable for their actions according to federal legislation.
