Across the country, households are using pop-up hampers to hold laundry. They are seemingly safe but as Keon Reeves discovered they can have dangerous and life changing side effects. Reeves is an eleven (11) year old Houston boy who may have lost sight in his eye forever due to a malfunction in the pop up hamper. He was putting laundry into the hamper when the wire frame of the hamper cut through the mesh nylon holding it and popped out of its container. This chain of events lead to the 10-inch piece of metal being exposed and popping out into Reeves open eye. The metal slashed through his eye and as of now, it is unclear if he will ever have vision in his damaged eye. This is not the first report of this happening. Kennedy Hodges is now investigating this dangerous product and we are excepting claims on the defective pop-up hamper.
Thousands are injured each year in the U.S. due to dangerous design defects, defective manufacturing or various product marketing defects. When a product's hidden dangers cause property damage, serious injury or fatality, consumers can pursue compensation for their losses and damages through a personal injury claim.
The following companies all have a form of the pop-up hamper: Wal-Mart, Target, Disney, Honey Can Do, Fisher Price, Household Essentials, Nickelodeon, and Mainstays.
