Dangerous Toys & Children's Products Injury Lawsuits

Dangerous Toys & Children's Products Injury Lawsuits

Parker Waichman LLP is a leading personal injury firm dedicated to protecting consumers from dangerous products that threaten their health or safety.

Toy manufacturers are obligated to create products that place children’s safety as a top priority. Unfortunately, this does not always happen. Too often, we discover that a certain toy presents serious hazards to kids, whether due to its poor design, inappropriate use of materials, or the manufacturer’s failure to warn about certain risks. If your child or someone you know was injured by a dangerous or defective toy, call the experienced product liability lawyers at Parker Waichman LLP today for a free, no-obligation evaluation of your case.

In recent years, authorities have taken issue with the prospect of dangerous toys. In 2012, dozens of toys were recalled due to health or safety risks, and 2 million more were blocked from even entering the market, according to MSNBC. Through new laws, the federal government is able to inspect toys that ship from overseas before they enter the country. But even with these new measures, inspectors are only able to check a small percentage of toys to make sure they are safe.

Sadly, a number of dangerous toys still make it onto store shelves and into the homes of families across the country. In fact, MSNBS reports that in 2011, 13 kids were killed by playing with a toy and 193,000 more were injured. Small high-powered magnetic toys, typically sold under the brand name Buckyballs, were a major culprit in children’s toy injuries in 2011.

According to the U.S. Public Interest Research Group (PIRG), most dangerous toys in 2012 involved:

  • Toys with high levels of toxic substances such as phthalates and lead
  • Toys with small parts that present a choking hazard, despite a ban on small parts for toys made for children under three years old
  • Toys that affect kids’ hearing because they exceed noise levels recommended by the National Institute of Deafness and Other Communication Disorders
  • Small powerful magnets that are harmful when swallowed

Parents and other adults should always read the warning label on a toy before giving it to a child. However, in some cases the warning label is inadequate or the product itself is faulty; in this case, parents should not feel responsible for their child’s injury. If your child or someone you know suffered injuries from a defective of dangerous toy, you may have valuable legal rights. Pursuing litigation against the manufacturer could lead to compensation for medical bills, ongoing medical care and other expenses related to the child’s injury.
