Philadelphia personal injury lawyers advise consumers that the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has issued a recall of ESL and Interlogix hard wired smoke detectors for failure to alert consumers of fire. The detectors are hard wired into security systems and primarily used in office buildings, schools, hotels, apartments, college dormitories, and some newer built homes. The CPSC posted the recall on August 13, 2014 and more information can be found here.
Consumers of the recalled fire alarm devices that retail between $30 and $50 should call their security or fire safety system providers to determine whether or not the models installed are part of the recall. If they are, consumers will receive free replacement and installation of the new alarms.
Philadelphia personal injury attorneys at Messa & Associates know that tragic fire cases are often times caused by defective or inefficient smoke detectors. Attorneys Tom Sweeney and Joseph Messa secured an eight-figure settlement after a family of seven perished in a fire that spread throughout their mobile home when a smoke detector failed to give timely warning. Messa & Associates has also secured a number of additional multi-million dollar verdicts regarding smoke detectors that did not sound.
