Heating pad heats up more than its user

In Missouri, a two-year old heating pad that was placed on a sofa caught fire while unattended. The manufacturer defended the claim on the basis of consumer abuse. The manufacturer’s counsel claimed that it would make no voluntary offer. However, Stutman Law retained the appropriate experts and all the necessary evidence at the onset. The strength of the investigation caused the manufacturer to rethink its position and reach a significant out of court settlement.
