Deciding what baby products to purchase is one of the most researched decisions parents make in their lives. New parents agonize over picking the safest strollers, car seats, toys, and clothes, among other products. Making these purchases and ultimately keeping their children safe is at the forefront of all parents’ minds when preparing their home for a new baby and as they continue to purchase items as children grow. If a child is hurt because of a flawed product, the company that made the item can be held responsible. Ramsey Law Group knows how horrible it is when a child is injured and we do everything we can to ensure the responsible party is held accountable.
Parents should take some peace of mind that children and baby products are heavily regulated and the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) works hard to make sure consumers know about recalls of unsafe products. They will even take measures, such as lawsuits or involuntary recalls, to keep companies from selling hazardous products. Unfortunately, with new items coming to the market every day, it is hard to always be 100% sure something is safe.
Some baby products injuries we have seen include strollers causing cuts by folding parts, cribs or other sleeping surfaces causing suffocation, baby clothes not meeting flame retardant standards and children being burned in a fire, children choking on a toy component, and a car seat not properly protecting a child in an accident. These are just a few examples, but we have seen baby products lead to serious injury, permanent disability, and in some cases death. We know how hard it is for a family to see a baby suffer, and that is why we work hard to not only relieve your pain and suffering, but also to make sure the defective product is fixed or taken off the shelves so other families can avoid tragedy.
