Could Your Electronics Be Putting You at Risk?

By The Husband and Wife Law Team on October 21, 2011

More and more people rely on electronics to communicate with loved ones, find information, and complete work projects every day.

From laptop computers to high-tech projectors, technology makes it easier to run a business, seek entertainment, and stay in touch with people on the other side of the world. But did you know that defective electronics also put you at risk for serious injuries?

When a defective electronic device enters your home, it could only be a matter of time before it malfunctions and puts your safety at risk.

Problems with Electronics

Faulty wiring, defective LCD screens, bad computer monitors, and other defective electronics can cause serious injuries and even death. Bad wiring can cause house fires, serious burn injuries, and even electrocution. Defective LCD screens and computer monitors can explode, causing serious lacerations and if a piece of shattered glass hits the eye, it can cause blindness or permanent vision problems. Even safety alert monitors designed to help senior citizens live more independently pose a risk, as some types can cause strangulation.

Types of Injuries

Defective electronic devices can cause many types of injuries. The following is just a small sampling of the injuries that can occur:

  • First, second, or third-degree burns;
  • Eye injuries;
  • Bone fractures;
  • Crush injuries;
  • Strangulation;
  • Head or traumatic brain injury; and
  • Electrocution

Defective electronics also put children at risk, as they do not know how to avoid this type of danger.
