Laptop Burn Injuries

Laptops are meant to provide comfortable and easy access to all of your personal files, photos, music, videos, as well as Internet access from the comfort of your couch or favorite outdoor place. And even though the name suggests they are meant for your lap, the reality is many laptops can get hot enough to inflict severe burns if they touch bare skin over an extended period of time. Laptops have internal cooling fans that are supposed to keep them at a safe temperature, but sometimes they malfunction and put the user at risk of an injury.

Do not let negligent laptop manufacturers get away with producing faulty products. If you or a loved one has suffered an injury from an overheated laptop, contact Your Iowa lawyers of LaMarca Law Group, P.C., at (515) 705-0233 to discuss your legal options.

Laptop Safety Tips

Laptops and laptop accessories like chargers have been known to cause third-degree burns, especially after many hours of use. And while you may not be able to control the quality of a product, you can take certain precautions to help ensure your safety while using a laptop, such as:

  • Never putting a laptop or laptop charger directly on your bare skin
  • Keeping laptops on flat surfaces like tables so they can ventilate properly
  • Being aware of product recalls
  • Letting your computer rest on a regular basis by turning it off or putting it to sleep

You can also purchase a cooling pad for your laptop for a reasonably inexpensive solution to your laptop overheating problem. If your laptop is defective, however, you may be unable to prevent serious accidents from occurring.
