Holding Manufacturers Accountable for Pressure Cooker Burns
Burns are especially common due to the hazards of pressure cooking: hot foods and liquids and faulty safety mechanisms. Manufacturers must uphold excellent safety standards and are liable for accidents their products create. Filing an accident claim against your pressure cooker’s manufacturer is the first step in holding them accountable for your injuries.
When you suffer a burn from a faulty pressure cooker, it’s essential to take the following steps:
Seek medical treatment promptly to start the litigation process.
Preserve your damaged pressure cooker for later inspection.

The McLaughlin Law Firm’s lawyers will hire witnesses to corroborate your claim’s validity.
Causes of Pressure Cooker Burns
Pressure cooker burns directly result from hot steam or liquid while using appliances such as the Instant Pot pressure cooker. The high pressure level inside these appliances can also cause burns if the unit explodes. You risk suffering a pressure cooker burn if:
You attempt to open the lid before it shuts off
The unit’s lid is not in the correct sealing position
The sealing ring is defective
Safety functions don’t activate after improperly closing the lid
The unit explodes unexpectedly
Burns on the head, face, neck, and chest are most common in pressure cooker accidents. In addition to burns, pressure cooker users are also at risk for significant scarring or disfigurement and injuries to the face and brain. While being attentive to your pressure cooker can help you avoid sustaining burns, it’s not always enough to keep you safe.
