Dangers of Faulty Childcare Products
Parents have a deep and meaningful duty to ensure the proper care and safety of their children. To that end, many of today’s parents find the use of instruments or gadgets, such as high chairs or strollers, to be incredibly helpful when it comes to the day to day activities of raising a child. For many parents, they operate under the assumption that the products and toys they use for their children have been met certain safety guidelines. Many of these parents are correct in their assumption; however, mistakes and oversights occur far too often in this industry. When a safety issue is overlooked, the consequences can be incredibly harmful.
No parent wants to see his or her child get ill or injured, but it can be exponentially more upsetting to deal with when a child is harmed in a way that could have been avoided. There is no excuse for defective products that cause injuries to children, and we at Pohl & Berk, LLP, want to ensure that anyone responsible for these faulty products is held accountable.
Cases We Handle
Our attorneys have helped a number of parents recover financial compensation for the suffering of their children caused by defective products. In our experience, the following are some of the most common issues to arise in these types of cases:
- Lead Paint Poisoning
- Age-inappropriate Toys
- Choking Hazards
Parents of children who suffer from illness or injuries related to faulty children’s products or toys should not have to be responsible for any medical or rehabilitative costs related to those injuries, and any company or manufacturer of the harmful product should be held responsible for their negligence.
