Dangerous Toy Causes Fire And Death Of Two Children
In the early morning hours, two children under eight were asleep in their room. Their newly acquired toy, a “disco light,” an electrified sphere that emits colored lights in flashing patterns, was plugged into a wall socket. The “disco light” caught fire.
Asleep in another room, their mother was unaware of the fire until she smelled smoke and carried her children outside. Unfortunately, the children were overcome by carbon monoxide poisoning from the smoke and could not be revived.
Steve Browning comments on the cause of this tragedy: “Children are too often the victims of unthinkable things. This was a toy – it should not have been built to get hot enough to catch fire. We investigated and found this product was manufactured in China. Clearly, it did not meet the strict codes that should have been imposed on it before being shipped to retailers in the U.S. It is one more example of dangerous imported products being sold to children.”
Vigorous discovery and prosecution ultimately resulted in a confidential settlement with multiple defendants on behalf of the family of the deceased children.
Defective Products Cause Catastrophic Accident
Our attorneys undertook a thorough investigation of the accident and inspection of the failed tire, discovering that product defects were to blame. Attorney Steve Browning explains: “Accidents and severe injury are caused by defective products more frequently than is realized or reflected in litigation. In this case, we determined that both the tire and automobile manufacturer were liable. On the eve of trial, both defendants offered settlement commensurate with our client’s injuries and needs.”

Husband Compensated For Wife’s Death By “Big Rig” Manufacturer
Steve Tucker survived, believing what had occurred was just a horrible accident. While at the funeral service for Tammy, Steve learned that a recall notice had just come out from Peterbilt related to a faulty latch on the same door that had unexpectedly come open and thrown his wife to her death.
Steve Browning took the case, and flew out to the accident site in South Dakota to conduct a thorough investigation, which included an examination of the door on the Tucker’s truck. He gathered evidence that proved that the door latch was defective. “Peterbilt took a hard line – their product was not defective and they did what was required by sending out a recall notice. Of course it was obvious to us that companies do not send recall notices out on products that are not defective. This, coupled with the results of our investigation, demonstrated their culpability,” said Steve Browning, who reached a confidential settlement with Peterbilt on behalf of Steve Tucker and his children.
“I appreciate everything Steve Browning did for us. Under the horrible circumstances, working with him and the firm was a positive experience and led to the best outcome possible.” – Steve Tucker
