Defective Washing Machines: Can You Get Compensation?

November 2, 2017
On behalf of The Law Offices of Howard Craig Kornberg Posted in Product liability

Samsung phones are not the only things that explode in 2017. Defective washing machines, particularly those manufactured by Samsung between March 2011 and April 2016, may explode in your home and leave you or your loved ones injured.

But not only Samsung washing machines can be defective. Although clothes dryers still lead the pack in the types of equipment that cause home fires, defective washing machines are catching up.

The annual average number of home fires caused by defective washing machines amounts to nearly 1,300 incidents every year in the U.S. alone.

While there are multiple legal ways to return something that is defective – a washing machine, car, or motorcycle – how do you hold manufacturers accountable for your property damage and personal injuries caused by home fires and explosions?

Here at the Law Offices of Howard Craig Kornberg, we’ve helped our clients recover more than $3.4 billion in cash as part of the compensation for consumers’ economic losses caused by defective products.

Our finest product liability attorneys have taken on big, Fortune 500 corporations to refund to consumers the cost of repairing defective products as well as cover the cost of property damage and personal injuries sustained by explosions, home fries, and other incidents caused by defective washing machines.

Get compensation for defective washing machine’s property damage or personal injury

If a defective washing machine caused damage to your property because it was defective and it wasn’t your fault, you may be entitled to claim compensation for your property damages and personal injuries.

You could go straight to your insurance company if your current insurance plan covers this type of property damage and personal injury. However, do note that insurance companies may launch their own investigation into your claim to minimize compensation.

That’s why it’s recommended to consult an experienced product liability attorney first. At the Law Offices of Howard Craig Kornberg, our finest product liability attorneys are available in Riverside and all across Southern California.
