San Diego, CA (PRWEB) January 21, 2013
AttorneyOne.com, a recognized authority on law, updated the website recently and they are now actively providing expert opinion in view of the recent news on Fireplace Burn lawsuits.
According to court documents, on December 21st, 2012, the parents of a one-year-old toddler filed a proposed class action lawsuit, in British Columbia Supreme Court (no. 129053), alleging their son suffered second-degree burns to his right hand caused by their glass-fronted fireplace. In the lawsuit, the parents claim their fireplace can reach temperatures as high as 315 C and did not come with a protective screen to prevent direct contact with the glass.
On October 8th, 2012 the Hearth, Patio & Barbecue Association (HPBA) announced an industry-wide safety initiative for the protection of children and adults from burns resulting from touching glass fronts on gas fireplaces. A consumer safety education campaign and a mandatory safety standard for new gas fireplaces manufactured after January 1, 2015 are included in the safety initiative.
Taking into consideration the latest developments, AttorneyOne.com updated the website and, now, can actively provide an expert opinion including how to get in contact with legal counsel easily and inexpensively in case of alleged Fireplace Burn. Sean Burke, director of Media Relations for AttorneyOne.com, adds that the relevant information illustrates that people continue to file Fireplace Burn lawsuits. "For that reason", he continues, "our focus should squarely fall on getting the word out and assisting people in finding the right legal assistance.”
