Stovetop Pressure Cooker Exploded Causing Severe Burn Injuries
Johnson // Becker filed this Complaint alleging that Tabletops Unlimited, Inc., the manufacturer of the Philippe Richards pressure cooker, defectively designed its stovetop pressure cookers, unnecessarily putting consumers at risk of severe injury. The Complaint was filed on behalf of Anthony and Stacy Hausman, residents of Indiana.
The Hausman’s pressure cooker exploded while under pressure on April 2, 2018. As a result of the explosion, Hausmans sustained severe thermal burns to their bodies. The lawsuit alleges that the pressure cooker failed to function properly when the lid was able to explosively separate from the pot during the normal use of the pressure cooker.
This suit is filed by Michael K. Johnson and Adam J. Kress of Johnson // Becker. Michael Johnson is the founding partner of Johnson // Becker. Adam Kress and Michael Johnson are the co-chairs of the firm’s Consumer Products Division, which includes claims involving defective products such as exploding pressure cookers. They believe that it is an honor to represent their clients who have been injured by defective consumer products, and that holding manufacturers responsible for their clients’ injuries not only helps their clients, but prevent future injuries by forcing manufacturers to evaluate the safety of their products.
