Accident Prompts Gel Candle Warning

Posted By Houston Personal Injury Attorney || 31-Jul-2011

After a 14-year-old Long Island, New York boy was hospitalized following an accident with a gel candle, the makers of the product issued a recall, reports say.

Reports say the youngster, Michael Hubbard, poured scented candle gel into a lit candle when the fire ignited the gel and the bottle exploded. The explosion left him with third-degree burns over almost half his body, and fighting for his life. His mother, Nancy Reyer, was also injured while she extinguished the boy.

Evidently, a few days later, Nick Stone, 24 of Manhattan, suffered second- and third-degree burns over 40 percent of his body while doing the same thing, accoding to reports.

The injuries were sustained after using the FireGel citronella gel, a candle gel that is meant to be poured into ceramic pots, report say.

After an accident, the responsible party's insurance company may try to reduce the claim amount. Commonly, insurance adjusters are trained to get information from the injured to assist in reducing the claim. Though some insurers are less guilty of this practice than others, it is important to realize that insurance companies are profit-oriented corporations and reducing claims results in increased profits for shareholders. This can create a situation for the injured in which they are offered a settlement that does not truly reflect the damages suffered. If you accept this settlement, you lose the ability to get more money should your injuries require further medical treatments. It is critical that victims get legal assistance in any personal injury case, and The Doan Law Firm is prepared to fight relentlessly for your rights.
