Consumer Product Safety Commission Recalls


If you are a property adjuster, you are familiar with losses caused by defective products. We are seeing a significant increase in property damage caused by water and fire as a direct result of a defective product.

Few firms actually litigate a product liability matter to completion

Many firms litigate but few actually litigate a product liability matter to completion. This is why we are trying to work with you to bundle these files to increase the settlement value and decrease your operational costs associated with adjusting each claim.

Recently, we have effectively litigated product liability matters involving residential and commercial appliances, gas explosions, cellulose insulation, and sprinkler, plumbing and other water losses. Therefore, we would like to remind you of the following Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) recalls:
