March 2012

The Mulligan Law Firm is interested in speaking with you if you or a loved one have been seriously injured by a paper shredder.  Specifically, MailMate Paper Shredders may be linked to the loss of fingers in small children.  Shredders such as this may have been sold by stores such as Staples.

Some paper shredders may have inadequate shielding around the blade area thus causing children and even pets to potentially be injured by the blades when the shredder is activated, often while the shredder is in “auto on” mode and activated by the placement of anything in the paper input area.  The shielding is sometimes flimsy and may expand thus allowing the entry of larger objects such as fingers.  Hair can also become caught in shredders, leading to scalp injury.  The paper shredder should be unplugged at all times except when in use in order to help prevent children, pets, and others being involved in paper shredder accidents involving the “auto on” feature.

The Consumer Safety Commission issued an extensive report in December 2004 informing manufacturers of these types of safety issues.  Manufacturers may not have recalled defective products or taken other needed corrective actions.
