Have You Been Injured Due to Flammable Clothing?
At Rheingold, Valet, Rheingold, McCartney & Giuffra LLP, we have been serving the legal needs of people from New York and throughout the nation for over 30 years. We handle a wide range of product liability claims, including those involving defective and flammable clothing products.
Under the Flammable Fabrics Act, a very low standard has been established for the flammability of fabrics and materials used in the manufacturing of clothing. The standard is so weak that newspaper passes the test and would not be considered "flammable" under the F.F. Act. Moreover, the volume of clothing products entering the market every year makes it impossible for every product to be properly tested.
Some clothes are treated with chemicals, making them more flammable than required by law. Certain types of sheer and lightweight fabrics are also known to catch fire easily.
Many times the fabric does not even have to come into contact with the flame to cause a burn injury. Some types of synthetic fabrics melt at high temperatures, causing severe burn injures as the molten substance comes in contact with bare skin.
Our attorneys have successfully handled numerous product liability claims and are here to help you pursue monetary compensation for the financial hardships you and your family have endured.
