Child Injuries Caused By Defective Products In New York

Nearly 233,000 children in the United States were injured as a direct result of accidents involving toys and other children’s products, in 2007. Parents presume that when they buy a toy or other children’s items that the manufacturer has taken the necessary steps to ensure the safety of their products. It can be heartbreaking for a parent to watch their child in pain or suffering. Companies that make children’s items need to take better precautions during the manufacturing process to provide a quality product that will not cause injury or death due to their negligence.

Our child injury attorneys in NY help parents and their children with cases related to defective toys. Contact our legal team to learn more.

Injuries Sustained From Defective Toys

Children who have been injured experienced tremendous pain from burns caused by defective anti-flammable additives and by defective devices that overheated or caught fire.

Choking because of small parts breakage or falling off, accounts for many of these injuries. Lead paint poisoning caused thousands of children to experience severe vomiting and other effects as a result of lead content. CDC has more about lead poisoning and tips with what to do if it occurs. Strangulation, suffocation, and other cases resulted in death or serious injury. Riding toys are the most notorious when it comes to both toy-related fatalities and injuries.

You Have A Right To Legal Action

These are only five examples, there are so many more. More than three billion toys and games are manufactured and sold each year. While parents need to be vigilant, manufacturers need to make changes in their safety precaution procedures.

Manufacturers don’t have a list of people that purchase their products; unless they provide limited guarantees and registration cards on certain products, (even then many parents don’t register the item). When they learn of a problem with their merchandise, it is after one or more child has already suffered injury. They then issue public recall notices to consumers, but parents don’t always catch every recall. They have no idea of the danger their child may be in. Manufacturers need to be held accountable for children’s safety due to of their negligence. Parents also need to know that they can seek legal help from a personal injury lawyer with knowledge of child injuries.
