Sit N’ Stand Double and Ultra Stroller Recall

A news report posted on wtkr.com states that stroller manufacturer Baby Trend and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission have initiated a joint safety warning regarding the company’s safety of certain Baby Trend strollers. The safety warning involves the company’s Ultra and Sit N’ Stand Double strollers that have model numbers beginning with “SS66” or “SS76.”

The joint entrapment warning announcement stated that the issue involved the space in front of and behind the strollers’ pivoting front canopy. The space can entrap a child’s neck or head when a non-occupant child climbs on the stroller or when a child is not restrained while sitting in the seat of the stroller. Should a child become entrapped, they could become unconscious, sustain serious injury, or die.

According to a news report, a 14-month-old child tragically passed away due to asphyxiation after their neck became entrapment in a Baby Trend, according to Consumer Product Safety Commission. The Consumer Product Safety Commission warned that the baby’s neck became entrapped “in the space between the front of the canopy tube and armrest of a Baby Trend Sit N’ Stand double stroller.”

Another 17-month-old sustained injuries on a Baby Trend stroller, according to the CPSC. That child also became trapped “in the space between the back of the canopy tube and the seat back of the front seat.”

The Consumer Product Safety Commission and Baby Trend are advising owners to “ and separately the canopy when not in use, children play on the strollers, and always fully children in the strollers with the built-in five-point harness.” Additional information about the issue can be reviewed here.

Should You File a Product Liability Lawsuit?

Product liability lawsuits are legal claims brought against manufacturers, distributors, or retailers of products that cause harm to consumers. These lawsuits are based on the theory that companies have a responsibility to produce and sell products that are safe for their intended use, and if they fail to do so, they can be held accountable for any resulting harm.

In a product liability case, the plaintiff (the person bringing the lawsuit) must prove that the product was defective or dangerous in some way and that this defect was the direct cause of their injury. The types of defects that can lead to product liability claims include design defects, manufacturing defects, and failure to provide adequate warnings or instructions.

Suppose a company is found to be liable for a product defect. In that case, they may be required to pay damages to the injured party, including compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, loss of consortium, and pain and suffering. Additionally, a successful product liability lawsuit may lead to a recall of the dangerous product and changes to the way the product is manufactured or marketed in the future.

Overall, product liability lawsuits serve as a mechanism for holding companies accountable for the safety of the products they produce and sell and for providing compensation to individuals who those products have harmed.

If your child was harmed by one of these strollers, you may be entitled to recover monetary compensation. Parker Waichman LLP is a national plaintiff’s law firm who is offering a free consultation to victims of dangerous products.
