Numerous Children's Products Are Recalled Each Year

Toys and children's products are safer than they used to be, due to testing by independent parties before release. However, there are still many defective products on the market and these put children at risk every year.

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, kids' products recalled in 2016 include:

  • Building play sets from Alex toys
  • Dorel Juvenile Safety 1st strollers
  • Step-iT activity wristbands
  • Xenith football helmets
  • Mars Retail Group M&M'S-branded jewelry
  • SAHN bicycle helmets

Even if you do significant research before buying a stroller, crib, car seat or toy, you might wind up with a product that has a defect. Toys can pose a choking hazard or contain lead. Strollers may collapse, sending your child falling to the ground. Football and bicycle helmets may actually increase the risk of head injury.

If you are lucky, you will receive a recall notice, identifying the problem before anything bad happens. Unfortunately, too many parents only find out that a product is defective when it causes their child grievous harm.

How Our Tampa Lawyers Can Make A Difference

You may have a strong product liability claim if your child was injured by a defective product. After the incident, speak with one of our lawyers who can listen to your claim, review product warnings and discuss your options.

By suing the product manufacturer, you can gain peace of mind that you fought for your child's best interest. A cash settlement or award can also pay for the medical care your child needs to regain his or her health. By suing the company who made the defective product, you can also feel good knowing you're helping to protect other children from being harmed in the future.
