Who is Responsible For The Injuries Caused by Defective Christmas Lights?
During holiday times is when you start to see the most amazing lights. Whether you’re driving through your neighborhood or visiting a holiday lights festival, the lights always seem to amaze. Before the beautiful light show, you have to endure the hassle of hanging the lights. If you are the type of person that hangs lights every year, then you understand the hassle it involves. If you have the old ones stored somewhere, you usually have to worry about untangling them or replacing dead bulbs. However, if you have to go buy new ones, the last thing you should have to worry about is if they’re safe or not. Right?
Typical Christmas Light Injuries
No one expects to get electrocuted from hanging lights, especially if the lights are new. When a company puts its product on the market to be sold in stores or online, they certify that their product is safe to be sold so that when you purchase a new box of Christmas lights, you shouldn’t have to worry about the injury because of this certification.
But that’s not always the case. Even if the certification of safety is there you still can get injured because of faulty Christmas lights.
Defective light injuries require that you seek immediate medical attention. Some of the injuries you may see include, but are not limited to:
- Electrocution that typically leads to burns and abrasions
- Fires started from the defective lights that can lead to burns and property damages
