suffered severe burns from a Valor gas fireplace
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) August 22, 2012
The media spotlight is often a double-edged sword. No one knows this better than families who want to increase Fireplace Child Safety. And yet, gossip and rumor-mongering aside, the real story here is being overlooked according to Sean Burke of AttorneyOne.
On August 15th, 2012 the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection issued a burn ban. The Burn Ban suspended all residential burn permits, forest management, hazard abatement, and other industrial-type permitted burning. 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, based on a federal estimate.
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.
