Do you know what to do if you've been burned by a pressure cooker or Instant Pot device? We ask Colorado attorney George McLaughlin for this Ask the Lawyers Quick Question.
Obviously, medical attention is primary because you have serious burns. Cases that I have seen all have an at least first and second degree burns and there's some potential for even a third degree burn so you've gotta take care of your health first. And so you're not thinking about preserving evidence, taking photographs, but that is a good thing to do if you think of it, if you can get someone to do it for you. Photograph the scene exactly as it is. Photograph what happened to your kitchen, usually there's content spewed all over the place, and that really is helpful to show that the pot really was under pressure, I recommend you don't clean anything, just box it up carefully and then contact an attorney who has experience doing consumer products and particularly experience doing pressure cooker cases.
