The Dangers of Defective Clothes Steamers and Garment Steamers
A defective clothes steamer can be prone to spraying or leaking extremely hot or boiling water during use resulting in serious injury.
Does a steamer have to be recalled for there to be a legal case?
No. The fact that a product has not been recalled does not mean it is not defective. Unfortunately, there are likely millions of defective products on the market that have not been recalled.
Our firm recently handled a case involving a steamer made by Steamfast which resulted in a $230,000.00 recovery for burn injuries to our client. The case involved a Steamfast SF-447 Garment Steamer which has yet to be recalled.
Recalls Depend on Self-Reporting
Contrary to popular belief, governmental agencies are not testing every product on the market to ensure they are safe. Recalls largely depend on self-reporting from companies and consumers. For consumer products like steamers, businesses only have legal obligations to report in certain circumstances which are listed here. However, many defective products have not been reported to the appropriate governmental agency.

Clothes Steamer FAQ
The steamers were recalled because they were prone to expel, spray, or leak hot water during use. This posed a serious burn hazard to users.
- The Steamers Are Linked to Burn InjuriesThere have been at least 227 reports of hot water spraying or leaking from the steamers and at least 106 of these reports included burn injuries. Defective steamers have been linked to many types of burns. The primary type of burn resulting from a defective steamer is a scald burn. Scald burns result from exposure to very hot water or steam. A burn injury is categorized by how severe the damage is. This is done by determining how many layers of the skin were penetrated.
The different degrees of severity for a burn injury include:
- First-degree burns.First-degree burns only affect the epidermis, the outermost layer of the skin. First-degree burns cause symptoms such as redness, pain, and swelling. These burns usually heal on their own and rarely require medical attention.
- Second-degree burns.Second-degree burns cause damage to the epidermis and part of the layer of skin underneath it, known as the dermis. These burns result in redness, swelling, blistering, and intense pain. Second-degree burns are generally treated without surgery, but they may require a skin graft in more severe cases.
- Third-degree burns.Third-degree burns occur when all layers of the skin are destroyed, permanently damaging nerve endings, hair follicles, and sweat glands. A third-degree burn will likely require surgery and should always receive prompt medical attention

Mitch and his team at Chubb Law did such a great job on my case. I never had to pick up the phone to call for an update because Mitch was always in touch with one before I needed one. Mitch and his team made the process much easier by keeping me informed, and everyone at Chubb law is super friendly and professional. They made an unfortunate situation much more bearable. They really care about every one of their cases, and they work hard to get their clients what they deserve. 100% recommend.
Attorney Mitch Chubb and his staff are extremely professional and thorough. They treat you like family and will do everything they can to maximize the value of your case. I highly recommend them.
If I could give 100 stars I would!! Chubb Law team is extremely efficient, professional, down to earth, caring and is right there every step of the way. Attorney Mitch helped me get set up with the proper care and steps to take immediately after I got into an accident. He always checks in, gives updates and reminds me that I need to focus on getting better and he will take care of everything else! Chubb Law has been a blessing and I cannot thank them enough for all that they’ve done to help me!
I had an abrupt change of quality of life. My whole world was turned upside down. Mitch was beyond helpful. Aside from the spectacular legal advice and representation, he genuinely cared. He reached out after each and every surgery to see how I was doing. He was just great. I couldn’t recommend him and his colleagues enough. I hope you never need legal representation, but if you do, these are the guys you want.
10 OUT OF 5 STARS!!! I had the pleasure of working with Mitch & his team after an awful experience with my 1st lawyer. I came across Mitch and let me tell you, BEST DECISION EVER!! I never knew a lawyer could be such a friend! Mitch was there for me through every step of the way! It was over a 2 year process with lots of doctors & procedures & pain, but he was constantly there with words of encouragement and hope. I don’t think I would have made it through if it wasn’t for Mitch. I never felt pressured or rushed, just like a friend was there, looking out for me. He even offered to bring me food after one of my surgeries! I’m telling you, you will not find a more caring, kind, thoughtful team then Mitch and his people!
My husband was in a terrible semi truck accident. Initially my husband was blamed for the accident, but our lawyers at Chubb Law was able to prove what actually happened. Chubb Law became our second family. They stayed in contact with us as we dealt with the numerous aspects of the accident including working with other lawyers, dealing with doctors, insurance paperwork, and many other parts of our ordeal. They were easy to talk to, candid, honest, compassionate and upfront about legal issues. We appreciated these valuable characteristics throughout our difficult time. I would highly recommend Chubb Law to anyone who needs help from this great team of lawyers.
I was injured and didn’t know how to handle what came next. Mitch stepped in and took care of everything he possibly could. He was so helpful and so professional, yet very personable and friendly. He always walked me through everything that happened and kept me up to date on my case. When I got discouraged and felt like walking away he would tell me that I deserved this. He was amazing through the whole process and got me a great settlement. I couldn’t have been happier with the results. His number is definetly saved in my phone!!!
When I came to Mitch I had just been in a horrible crash with a drunk driver. My car was totaled, insurance companies were calling me and I was trying to manage all of this despite being hurt from the crash. During my first call with Mitch he comforted me, assured me they would take care of everything, and told me my only job was to do whatever I needed to heal from my injuries. He took the time to listen to what I had to say and was very confident that they would make sure everything would be ok. He and his team communicated with me every step of the way, made sure all of my questions were answered, and made sure I had everything I needed. After fighting with the insurance company for me, Mitch was able to get them to pay much more than I expected!
I waited for years had no response out of my original lawyer once Mitch took over my case it was the best thing that could’ve happened he moved Aggressively on getting The matter at hand Resolved Very down to earth extremely Easy to work with would highly recommend using his services
Mitch did a great job with my motorcycle accident. He even went to another state to the manufacturer of the product with an expert to document the faulty hub. He got me the best settlement he could based on the manufacturer’s poor insurance policy. Thanks Mitch…Richard.
