Dangerous Toy Attorney
Regardless of the industry or the intended use of the product, designers, manufacturers, and distributors of any commercial product have a responsibility to provide their consumers with safe and reliable products. A toy manufacturer is no different. They can be held liable for any accidents or injuries that occur due to a defect in design or production of their product.
Making Sure Justice Is Served
While it is never excusable for a company to put the public at risk by distributing dangerous products, the offense is even greater when the intended recipient or user of the product in question is a vulnerable and defenseless child.
Children are curious and likely to explore every possible use of a toy. Because of this, it is critical that the toy companies take every precaution to ensure that all of their component parts are safe for use by children.
There are a number of risks presented by children’s toys, and when manufacturers do not take special care to prevent these hazards, injuries are likely to result.
- Lead paint poisoning
- Choking hazards
- Fire hazards
- Puncture hazards
There are some ways to make a child’s world safer:
- Keep small toys out of the reach of babies.
- Check toys for detachable parts before giving it to a baby.
- Check toys for loose or broken parts that may come off.
- Don’t buy toys that are too loud and could damage a child’s hearing.
- Check toys for sharp, abrasive edges.
- Don’t buy toys that have cords long enough to pose a choking hazard.
