Torchiere floor lamps can lead to property damage and burn injuries because these lamps rely on halogen bulbs, which burn much hotter than incandescent light bulbs.

Some safety tips to reduce your risk of fires and burns include:
 

  • if your torchiere floor lamp is in need of repair, don't try to repair it yourself, instead, hire a licensed electrician;
  • place your torchiere floor lamp in an area where curtains, window treatments or any other flammable material will not come in contact with the bulb;
  • don't wrap drapes around your torchiere floor lamp;
  • keep the lamp away from bedding;
  • keep the lamp away from pets and children; and
  • use a bulb that's 30 watts or less. 


Since torchiere floor lamps are considered to be fire hazards, safety precautions must be taken. Even so, accidents can still occur. If you or your child were injured because of a torchiere floor lamp, you should bring this to the attention of a Philadelphia dangerous products lawyer. 

If someone else's negligence was a factor in your property damage or injuries, you might be able to file a dangerous products claim against the manufacturer, retailer or distributor of your torchiere floor lamp.
