Sometimes, ordinary household products conceal hidden dangers. Paper shredders are one such product. Many people use paper shredders in their home or home office, not suspecting that this seemingly harmless product can pose a serious danger. The most serious danger presented by these products is that created by overheating and catching on fire. Unfortunately, shredders catch fire with some regularity.
The fire starts in the box of the shredder, and heat generated by it is then expelled upward toward the user. In this way, paper shredders can cause severe burn injuries to users.
If you have suffered a burn injury while using a shredder, you need a lawyer with expertise in product liability law to advise you about your rights.
