Unsafe Cribs And Toys

When you purchase a toy or other product for your child, you assume that the toy will be reasonably safe and will not harm your child when he or she plays with it. Toy manufacturers and retailers have a responsibility to ensure the safety of their consumers. When accidents happen that involve defective or dangerous toys, parents may have a legal claim to compensation.

Like all products sold to consumers, toys must be designed in such a way that keeps their intended users safe. With toys, this means designing products for the intended age level and taking into account the reasonable behavior of someone at that level. Children may put toys in their mouths, throw them against walls or play roughly with them in other ways, all of which can result in serious injuries.

Companies need to understand this when designing and manufacturing toys. Our firm will review your accident and work to hold the company liable that was negligent in the making or selling of defective toys. We also represent parents in baby product and safety seat cases.
