The drop-side baby crib recall made big headlines recently, but other child product recalls were also publicized by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). If a recalled product caused serious injury to your child, reach out to an attorney who handles Texas product liability law cases.
Several years ago the CPSC urged importers, distributors and manufactures of baby walkers to comply with safety standards to keep toddlers from falling down stairs. It was suggested that walkers be designed wider than the standard doorway or have some kind of mechanism that makes them stop at the edge of a stair. As a result, from 1992 to 2003 there was an 88% reduction in the number of toddlers treated in emergency rooms for injuries related to falls from baby walkers, mostly stair falls.
However, many walkers may still fail to have stair-fall protection mechanisms, and are therefore still defective. It would be a good idea to get in touch with a Texas product liability law attorney if your toddler has been seriously injured in a fall in a walker, in any bedding that was the subject of a baby crib recall, or by any other defective product.
Child Product Recalls: When Injuries Lead to Filing a Claim
If an attorney determines that you have a legitimate case, you may entitled to damages for physical and emotional injuries. The compensation that may be available includes:
- current and future medical expenses;
- lost earnings;
- pain and suffering;
- altered quality of life;
- funeral and burial expenses, in the event the dangerous product caused the death of your child; and
- mental anguish.
To understand your legal options after your child has been victimized by a defective product, you should immediately schedule an appointment for a consultation with a Texas attorney.
