Beware of Lethal Dangers Lurking in Your Home

Common Household Products Can Put You, Others at Risk

Pain medication, cosmetic and personal care items, and household cleaners cause the most harm to Americans.

A woman in South Jordan, Utah, was recently poisoned when she ordered sweet tea at a restaurant. While making the tea, a restaurant employee accidentally used deep fryer cleaner instead of the sweetener that had similar packaging.

All too often we hear about someone who has accidentally poisoned themselves or someone else with a dangerous household chemical. While threats from lead-based paint and asbestos are well publicized, many other silent dangers are present in nearly every home and business in the United States. The good news: some companies and government entities are teaming up to limit the use of these dangerous chemicals in consumer products and are trying to get them off our shelves and out of our homes.

Charles G. Monnett III & Associates represented a Tennessee man who was awarded $2,328,000 jury verdict after he was severely injured by defective Bow-Flex machine. The verdict included $2M in punitive damages. This result is an example of matters handled by our firm. Each case is unique and must be evaluated on its individual merits. Past results are not a guarantee a similar outcomes.
