Child Product Liability Injury Lawsuit: Child Injuries from Defective Products
It is easy to assume that because a product was intended to be used by or for a child, it would be designed and manufactured with the utmost care. Sadly, that is not always the case. According to the Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC), in 2002 an estimated 212,000 emergency room were caused by dangerous and defective toys. Defective cribs kill 26 children every year, and injure more 100,000 others. Some of the most common injuries sustained by children due to defective products include:
- Lead paint poisoning
- Choking on small parts
- Burns and electrical shocks from electronic toys and appliances
- Injuries and death from cribs, car seats, strollers and other nursery products
- Injuries from poorly designed clothing (choking on buttons and other small parts, strangulation from drawstrings
- Strangulations caused by mini blinds, roman shades cords
- Broken bones, spinal cord injuries and brain damage caused by faulty playground and sports equipment
- Broken bones, spinal cord injuries, brain damage and drowning caused by defective swimming pool equipment, such as pool slides
- Lacerations from toys, furniture and other products that have sharp edges
The manufacturer of a product is responsible for damages stemming from its failure to adequately warn of any potential injury risk the manufacturer knew, or should have known about. The failure to provide adequate instructions on safe use of a product is also the manufacturer’s responsibility. Other parties along the chain of manufacture, including suppliers, can also be held responsible for injuries caused by a defective product.
