Researcher Calls for Safer Glass-Fronted Gas Fireplaces: Burn Threat Remains
Date:6/28/2012

San Diego, CA (PRWEB) June 28, 2012

The media spotlight is often a double-edged sword. No one knows this better than toddlers who suffer from severe Fire Place Burn. And yet, gossip and rumor-mongering aside, the real story here is being overlooked according to Sean Burke of AttorneyOne.

On June 20th, 2012 the Phys.org published that in her upcoming article the human factors/ergonomics researcher Carol Pollack-Nelson explains how she called on the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) to require manufacturers to make glass-fronted gas fireplaces safer. In January 2011, FairWarning reported that more than 2,000 children ages five and under suffered burn injuries from fireplace glass from 1999 to 2009, according to a federal estimate. As Pollack-Nelson mentions “The glass front of a gas fireplace may seem like a barrier to parents but in fact the glass is hot enough to cause severe burns with only momentary contact”.

According to court documents, on May 2nd 2011 a class action suit was filed (case no. 3:11-cv-02146-EDL) in federal court in Oakland contending that owners of Valor fireplaces have suffered economic loss because they will need to install safeguards on the fireplaces to prevent small children and infants from third-degree burns. The two-year-old daughter, Signe, of the class representative of the suit, Sean Whelan of San Francisco, suffered severe burns from a Valor gas fireplace.

AttorneyOne.com, a recognized authority on law, can provide helpful advice and simple solutions including how to get in contact with legal counsel so that, in case of Fireplace Burn, someone can easily and inexpensively deal with it. As Mr. Burke, director of Media Relations for AttorneyOne.com, added, “What all this information really illustrates is that threat of severe Fireplace Burn remains. For that reason, our focus should squarely fall on getting the word out and assisting people in finding the right legal assistance.”

According to the FairWarning report, published on Jan. 23rd 2012, gas fireplace makers offered a proposal to include protective screens with all of their products because of the increasing number of severely burned toddlers.
