Dangerous Toys Lead to Many Child Injuries
Posted on August 23, 2013 | Categorized: Defective Products
There are many dangers facing children each day. Not only do they have to learn how the whole world operates, but also continually fend off life-threatening illness and traumatic experiences.
One of the greatest risks facing your child is dangerous toys. More than 200,000 children are hurt each year in the U.S. while playing with dangerous toys, and many deaths occur as a result of these accidents.
Many dangerous toys are banned from being sold or distributed. The United States Consumer Product Safety Commission bans or recalls nearly one hundred toys each year. However, even these drastic steps are not enough to totally protect your child from Florida dangerous toy injuries.
Many of the toys in the market still pose a risk to your child. Dangerous toys may present a choking hazard (the number one cause of death for young children), an entanglement hazard, a hazard for tripping and falling, or being immersed under water.
Most Florida dangerous toy injuries can be traced back to a failure in the design of the toy. However, defective toys can also get into the market as a result of manufacturing errors, quality control errors, labeling errors, or errors while distributing and selling the product.
If your child has sustained an injury or even been killed by a defective toy, you do not deserve to suffer the consequences of someone else’s negligence. It is not fair that your family has been harmed as a result of someone else who does not help shoulder your burden.
By having a Orlando product liability attorney on your side to help you file a personal injury claim against toy manufacturers, you can right this wrong. You may be able to earn financial compensation for your losses by holding other parties responsible for the accident.
