Multiple defective products lawsuits filed against 3M

Thousands of men and women from Texas and other parts of the country serve our nation in the various branches of the U.S. armed forces.

SAFD warns of space heater safety to prevent house fires

The personal injury lawyers at the Wyatt Law Firm became aware that within the past week, San Antonio Fire Department responded to numerous calls for house fires which causes were directly related to space heaters. Starting on January 20, 2019, a woman and her two pets were evacuated from a house fire when witnesses called firefighters due to seeing heavy smoke engulfing the living room of the home. Firefighters later discovered that a space heater was the cause of the fire. Another major fire occurred on January 23, 2019, where a space heater place inside an outdoor shed caught fire, killed a dog, and melted off the siding of the flame-engulfed shed. The space heater that was most likely priced at under $100 caused a steep $25,000 worth of damage. Finally, the third of many other space heater fires that have plagued the area ignited just before 6 a.m. on January 28, 2019. A 67-year-old man was killed in a house fire in Southwest Bexar County. Authorities discovered that the fire was likely caused by a space heater. The elderly man died from smoke inhalation, and two other family members who resided in the home suffered from severe burns.

Is a defective warning responsible for your injuries?

You would expect that a consumer could hold the manufacturer, distributor or seller of a product responsible for injuries that occur if the product is defective. You have likely seen the media coverage of igniting cellphone batteries, exploding airbags and toppling furniture. Consumers have the right to seek compensation when products cause them harm or take the lives of loved ones.
