Microwave Safety

Microwaves are a fixture found in almost every home and workplace in America today. Because they are so commonplace, people rarely consider microwaves to be dangerous and tend to use the microwave without any thought to the dangers they might present. However, microwaves are pieces of equipment that must be handled with care and thought, as they can be hazardous. Whether it is the food or liquid which is placed within them that presents a danger to a person or the microwave itself, a person can suffer serious harm when a microwave malfunctions.

If a microwave manufacturer fails to properly construct the microwave or label it, you could be traumatically harmed.

Microwave Dangers

Microwaves present explicit dangers when it comes to the heat they produce. Although a manufacturer is not responsible for a person overheating a product and spilling it on themselves, they are responsible if the microwave malfunctions due to a defect. Some potential dangers of this may include:

  • Fire burns
  • Accumulation of scalding steam from heating liquids
  • Tissue damage

Microwave burns can leave victims with 2nd or even 3rd degree burns. These types of injuries can have far-reaching effects unfortunately.
