Russell Hobbs Iron Burn Claims

Russell Hobbs Iron Burn Claims – Rebecca from Chester

The team at DSM Legal Solicitors have settled a further claim for a client who was injured after her Russell Hobbs iron burst into flames. Rebecca from Chester was at home doing her ironing.  She was using a Russell Hobbs Steam Glide iron and was holding it close to where the flex comes out of the base.  Suddenly, with no warning, flames shot out from where the flex entered into the unit and very shortly afterwards she was aware of a bang from the socket.  As a result, Rebecca sustained burns to her right dominant wrist. 

Making a Personal Injury Claim

After researching online for a law firm specializing in Russell Hobbs injury claims, Rebecca contacted us.  After speaking to Rebecca, we quickly established that the iron in question was one of the model numbers recalled due to a malfunction in the power cable.

From there, we set to work making a claim on Rachel’s behalf. In addition to Rebecca’s claim for pain and suffering, we also claimed for her prescription charges and for an element of care that Rebecca required from her husband during the initial few weeks following her injury when she was unable to do any housework or heavy lifting. 

Rebecca received the sum of £2,250.00.  After she received her settlement, Rebecca commented that she was “impressed with the speed and professionalism” shown by the team at DSM Legal Solicitors.
