Can rips, tears, and holes in a mattress cause fiberglass to escape?

Unfortunately, even small rips, tears, or holes in an Ashley or Nectar mattress can lead to fiberglass leaking from the product, especially if the damage is severe. People who have a mattress that is not in good condition are strongly advised to cease using it.

Fiberglass can escape a mattress even if it is only slightly damaged

Our law firm handles claims filed with Ashley and Nectar that concern their defective mattresses, and, naturally, we have heard the stories of numerous clients who were injured by the fiberglass in their mattress even if they had not removed the outer cover. Shards of glass can penetrate the surface of the mattress over the years or even within a few months from the purchase, so you can only imagine how much damage rips, tears, or holes in a mattress can cause.

If the rips, tears, or holes in your mattress have reached the inner layer of fiberglass, which may be closer to the surface of the product than you can imagine, there are considerably more chances that the fiberglass will escape the mattress. Consequently, if you have a mattress that is in poor condition, you should replace it as soon as possible and, if the fiberglass in it has led to injuries, you should keep it somewhere outside as evidence if you want to file a claim.

We will help you recover compensation if you were injured by fiberglass

Our law firm specializes in toxic exposure and product liability, which means that we have the experience and knowledge to help you obtain financial compensation from Ashley and Nectar if you were injured by the fiberglass present in their mattresses. To initiate the legal process, all you have to do is give our legal team a call and explain your situation. Subsequently, you will have to send us evidence that you own a mattress with fiberglass, your medical records that mention your injuries, and, if applicable, proof of property damage caused by fiberglass.

We will carefully evaluate your case afterward, and if we find that you are eligible to file a claim, our attorneys will quickly start preparing it for submission. Your participation in the legal process will be minimal, which means that you will have time to solve more urgent problems, such as treating your injuries and cleaning your home if it is contaminated with fiberglass. Several months after claim submission, you will receive the maximum compensation available from the liable company.
