more than 2,000 children ages five and under suffered burn injuries from fireplace glass from 1999 to 2009
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) July 27, 2012
The media spotlight is often a double-edged sword. No one knows this better than toddlers who suffer from severe Fireplace Burn. And yet, gossip and rumor-mongering aside, the real story here is being overlooked according to Sean Burke of AttorneyOne.
The Southern Medical Association presents the 25th Annual Southern Region Burn Conference from November 16th to November 18th 2012 at Norfolk, Virginia. The incidence of injuries requiring medical treatment was estimated at 400,000 in 2010. According to a January 2011 report by FairWarning, more than 2,000 children ages five and under suffered burn injuries from fireplace glass from 1999 to 2009 based on a federal estimate.
On Jan. 23rd 2012, Fair Warning reported that, because of the increasing number of severely burned toddlers, gas fireplace makers offered a proposal to include protective screens with all of their products. The Phys.org published on June 20th, 2012, that in the upcoming article of human factors/ergonomics researcher Carol Pollack-Nelson she explains how she called on the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) to require manufacturers to make glass-fronted gas fireplaces safer.

According to court documents, Kim and Yulduz Smith filed a lawsuit on June 10th 2011, in Colorado District Court (case no. 1:2011cv01526) alleging that their son, Stanton Smith, accidentally came into contact with the glass front of the fireplace in the lodge they were staying during vacations and suffered severe, life-altering burns on his hands. His injuries resulted in both irreparable physical injury and emotional distress.
