Harmful Products Put Children at Risk for Injury
Have you or your child been injured by a product by no fault of your own? Each year,harmful products get released into the marketplace in California and throughout the nation, resulting in the injuries of innocent victims. Those injured most often include infants, toddlers, and children.
Many children’s manufacturers have had to issue recalls on toys, furniture, and products because children have been injured or have died as a result of defectiveness. Typically, the product can be defective due the following:
- Design defect
- Manufacturing defect
- Marketing defect, or failure to warn of dangers
The manufacturers eventually cease making the harmful product, but only after there have been reports of injuries or fatalities. Unfortunately, by this time children have already suffered serious injuries or death as a result of the defective product. Items that could prove faulty include: toys, cribs, playgrounds, car seats, swings, playpens, infant walkers, and more.
If your child has been hurt as a result of a defective product design, you should contact an experienced product liability attorney to see if you have a legal case. You may be entitled to damages.
Contact Southern California product liability attorney John P. Burns to find out your legal options.
