BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — Boca Raton-based Sunbeam Corp. is facing a products liability lawsuit after a woman claims she sustained third degree burns while using a heating pad.

Plaintiff Lisa Wright says she sustained the burns while using a Sunbeam heating pad on her chest, a claim allegedly substantiated by a doctor.

From the suit: “On February 8, 2020, Lisa was suffering with inflammation in her chest that resulted in severe discomfort. As a solution to her pain, Ms. Wright placed the subject heating pad on her chest to reduce the inflammation. While using the subject heating pad, Lisa sustained severe third degree burins on her chest. The tissues on Lisa’s chest sustained severe and extensive third degree burns that spanned across her right breast, where the burns were concentrated. Dr. (Redacted) confirms the heating pad as the result of Ms. Wright’s injuries — reflecting that ‘the burns are located on the chest. The burns were caused by electrical contact. The skin at the site of th burns is red, oozing and white.”

The suit states that Wright has “suffered both extensive physical and mental trauma as a result of the injuries sustained.”

Sunbeam Products, Inc., is located at 2381 Executive Center Drive in Boca Raton. The company did not immediately respond to the court filing.

Ms. Wright is represented by Attorney Joshua Moore of Morgan and Morgan.
