Leather Sofas Cause Personal Injury Including Rashes and Burns

You may have heard on the news recently that there have been a number of injuries sustained by sitting on new leather sofas, often made in China. These have been purchased from a variety of furniture stores including Argos. If you have suffered an allergic reaction to a leather sofa, you can make a free claim enquiry with 1stClaims to see if you are entitled to treatment and compensation. Call us free on 0800 2888 693.

What Causes The Rash Or Burn From The Sofa?

It is believed that a chemical used in the sachets placed inside the sofas to prevent mould is causing the allergic reaction which can be very painful. Di-methyl Fumarate (DMF) is the chemical thought to be the root of the problem.

The first cases of injury were reported on the BBC Watchdog programme in October 2007, but what is disappointing is that people are still suffering now nearly two years later. It is the failure to remove these sofas from circulation that leads to a claim for compensation. All of the retailers were made aware of the potential problem when the first cases were reported and in our view should have stopped selling them at that time.

Have You Suffered A Rash Or Burn?

If you or your child has suffered an injury following the purchase of a new settee, you need prompt action to investigate your injury and the cause of it. Our solicitors are trained to investigate the claim for you and all enquiries with 1stClaims are free of charge. The solicitor will also recover the costs of any treatment for you and any losses and expenses, such as loss of earnings.
