Man Suffers Severe Burns in Cooler Fire and Explosion Accident

May 20, 2020

USA- writes that a former running back from Arkansas sustained severe burns in an accident that occurred recently just one day after he had turned 30. The victim and his wife were traveling in a pickup truck and heading to El Dorado with a cooler and a portable pit fire in the back of the vehicle. Reports indicate that the cooler caught fire and that while the victim attempted to remove it from the back of his vehicle, it exploded.*

The incident left the man with severe burns all over his body. The family arranged a GoFundMe page to help the victim’s loved ones during this difficult time. 

Sometimes injuries are caused by defects in consumer products. In fact, defective products lead to thousands of injuries in this country every year. While there is no federal law to dictate requirements for these claims, each state has laws regarding product liability. 

Defective products can be the result of a manufacturing error, an error caused during the manufacturing of one of the product’s components, a problem during the assembly process, one that happened while the wholesaler had the item or one that involved the retail location.

The defects are divided into three types, including a design flaw, manufacturing errors, and marketing defects. If a design flaw is to blame, then the product is defective even when it is made to meet the intended specifications.  If the defect is due to a manufacturing issue, then the design may be adequate, but the manufacturer improperly made the product. If marketing is the issue, then the problem was created because the instructions do not explain how to use the product safely, or warn of potential risks created by the product. If the product is defective, then the victim or their family may be entitled to compensation.
