It is a good idea to stay updated on potential recalls

Many of the products that people buy in the United States are safe, as long as consumers know the potential risks and how to safely use or operate them. There are some products, however, that may be unsafe if they were made defectively or if the instructions are unclear. It is wise for consumers in Illinois and elsewhere to regularly check on potentially dangerous products in case there have been injuries or dangerous incidents, or to see if there were any recalls.

Recently, some consumers have claimed that certain Instant Pot products are overheating and causing melting damage to parts of their cookers, which could create a burning hazard. The Instant Pot company issued a reassurance that the popular Instant Pot cooker is not the affected appliance. Instead, those who own the Gem 65 8-in-1 Multicooker may be able to replace their product for a safe one. The company has not yet issued an official recall, and has advised people who own this model to immediately stop using the product.

Fortunately, it seems as if there have been no injuries regarding Instant Pot products. However, the incident serves as a reminder for consumers to regularly check the Consumer Reports website or to do Internet searches for products they own that may cause injury. This is especially true for appliances that use electricity or heat up, or are meant for children. It is not always possible to foresee an injury due to a dangerous product, however, and those who have been injured may be entitled to compensation.

  4. "Easy to talk to"

    Mr. Mathys and Mr. Schneid were very professional and easy to talk to. Prior to working with them, my wife and I had no real experience with the legal system beyond a house closing, yet Mr. Mathys and Mr. Schneid explained the whole process to us very well. I knew that whenever I had a concern about our case or the legal system in general I could call their office or send an email and receive answers the same day... -Larry

  5. "Provided very wise advice"

    I've dealt with attorneys on a variety of issues, almost all of them since leaving college and entering the workplace. Mr. Mathys was the first attorney I had any real experience with, and I was impressed then and remain so. He provided very wise advice and always kept me informed. In the end, he delivered a favorable result. I recommend him highly.

  7. "They went to bat for me"

    Not long ago I was involved in a car accident where I was hit by a gravel truck at an intersection. After I called Mathys & Schneid, even though I didn't have a very large case, they made me feel like I was one of their most important cases. They went to bat for me with the trucking company's insurance and got me a settlement. I would definitely recommend them to my family and friends. -Dan H.
