Lawyers for Injuries Caused by Dangerous Strollers, Cribs, and Toys in DuPage County and Cook County

As a parent, you would do just about anything to keep your children safe. With this in mind, you probably use products designed to protect your child from getting hurt, ensure that your child plays with age-appropriate toys, and monitor your child while he or she is eating, sleeping, or playing. Unfortunately, vigilance is not always enough, and children are injured as a result of defects in the very products designed to keep them safe. When such an injury occurs, it is important to work with a knowledgeable product liability lawyer so that you can hold the defective product's manufacturer accountable for the child's injuries.

At Kaiser Hafezi Law, our lawyers have more than 100 years of experience in handling personal injury cases, including many involving defective children's products. We know the effects that a child's injuries can have on his or her family, and we will do everything we can to help you obtain justice for your child. With a long history of success in product liability cases, our team has the background and tools to help with yours.

Injuries Caused by Defects in Children's Products

All consumer products should be free from dangerous defects that could lead to injuries, but this expectation is especially true with children's products. Products intended for babies and young children should undergo exhaustive testing, and end-users should be given clear instructions about how to use the products safely. If a child is injured by a defective product, the manufacturer of the product may be held liable, and distributors and retailers could share in the liability as well.

Some of the most common baby products that have historically caused injuries include:

  • Cribs and bed products – Certain types of crib defects have allowed babies to get stuck or fall out, while pads, sleep positioners, and bumpers can create risk for asphyxiation and Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS).
  • Baby carriers and slings – These items allow a parent to carry a child close to his or her body, but they can have defective clasps or links that could allow the child to fall. Smaller children could also be at risk of suffocation if the sling or carrier is too tight.
  • Car seats – A child should always be secured in a safety seat when riding in the car, but these seats can be defective. Malfunctioning buckles, latches, and straps could allow the seat or the child to be thrown loose in the event of a car crash.
  • Strollers – Baby strollers have become increasingly luxurious in recent decades, but defects such as wheel-lock failure or a clasp that fails to latch can create serious dangers. Defective jogging strollers and bike trailers are particularly dangerous due to the danger of overturning if the defective part fails during a run or bike ride.
  • Toys – Baby toys might have small parts that can break loose and become choking hazards or sharp edges that could cut a child. Additionally, more and more baby toys have battery-operated electronic components. Defective electrical systems could expose the child to a live current, and defective batteries could leak caustic chemicals. Small batteries that come loose are easily swallowed and can cause major health issues.

Regardless of what type of product defect caused your child to suffer injuries, our attorneys are prepared to help you. We understand what is at stake, and we will work hard to get you and your child full compensation under the law.
