Exposure to glass fibers from Zinus mattresses can worsen the symptoms of asthma and bronchitis
Because all mattresses in the United States are required to have a fire retardant under Federal Law, numerous manufacturers include glass fibers in their products, as it is very cheap. However, if the glass fibers escape from the mattress, which can easily happen in the case of Zinus mattresses, you are at high risk of injuring yourself.
Exposure to glass fibers can occur through inhalation, skin contact, and ingestion. In Zinus mattresses, the glass fibers can be found in the inner layer of the product, which means that you will only be exposed if you remove the outer cover of the mattress. Numerous people did this, as the mattress comes with a zipper on the outer cover, indicating that it is washable and with no warning of the dangers of exposure to glass fibers on the label. The following are the injuries that can be caused by exposure to glass fibers:
- itchy skin
- painful skin irritation
- eye injuries
- upper respiratory infections
- aggravation of asthma and bronchitis
- stomach irritation
- chronic breathing problems
Furthermore, if glass fibers are inhaled, this may cause severe irritation of the nose and throat, whereas if glass fibers come in contact with your eyes, they will become red and inflamed. Numerous skin injuries caused by glass fibers require the surgical removal of the glass from the skin since these particles are very small, and you will not be able to remove them yourself.
In the regrettable case that you own a Zinus mattress and you were exposed to the glass fibers in the inner layer of the product, which led to injuries, you are eligible for compensation from the company, which our attorneys can help you recover.
