This case involves injuries to a plaintiff due to an allegedly defective microwave. The plaintiff, a fifty-three-year-old male, was cooking a meal. He had a four burner stove, and, above it, a combination microwave/hood. While cooking, the fan in the hood was blowing. The plaintiff began preparing additional ingredients, but while he was cooking, the microwave turned on, spontaneously. It continued running and eventually caused a fire. The plaintiff rushed to turn off the burners and tried to extinguish the flames by the microwave. He ended up with second-degree burns on both of his arms and required extensive treatment.
