Some EGO Power Hedge Trimmers Have Mind of Their Own

Posted by Ted A. Schmidt | Jun 06, 2023 | 0 Comments

Chevron North America is recalling its EGO Power Brushless Hedge Trimmer (Model HT2410) and instructing consumers to discontinue use of the trimmer immediately. The potentially defective and dangerous product should be returned.

There have been 34 incidents of the trimmer turning itself on unexpectedly and without warning and resulting in some eight lacerations to unsuspecting consumers. 

There are at least 85,000 of these units in use in the United States and some 4,000 in Canada.

Anytime a person is injured or killed while using virtually any kind of product (e.g. cars and trucks, tools, equipment, chemicals, clothing, even food) the potential for a products liability action should be considered.

This is one of our specialties.

About the Author

Ted A. Schmidt

Ted's early career as a trial attorney began on the other side of the fence, in the offices of a major insurance defense firm. It was there that Ted acquired the experience, the skills and the special insight into defense strategy that have served him so well in the field of personal injury law. Notable among his successful verdicts was the landmark Sparks vs. Republic National Life Insurance Company case, a $4.5 million award to Ted's client. To this day, it is the defining case for insurance bad faith, and yet it is only one of several other multi-million dollar jury judgments won by Ted during his career. He is certified by the State Bar of Arizona as a specialist in "wrongful death and bodily injury litigation".
