Toy Defects

Toys and other products for children are recalled every year as a result of safety concerns. Unfortunately, these recalls usually do not happen until after children have already been injured as a result of the defective or dangerous products. If your child has suffered harm as a result of a defective toy, it is in your best interest to speak to an experienced personal injury attorney about your rights.

Children Pay The Price When Toy Makers Place Profits Above Safety

Toy manufacturers are in the business of making money, not looking out for child safety. While there are many regulations in place to keep our children safe from dangerous toys, many manufacturers are willing to risk the occasional fine in order to eliminate the costs of adhering to safety regulations.

Unfortunately, this calculation is paid for by innocent children who are injured simply by playing with toys or attempting to enjoy other products. If your child is one of them, we will thoroughly investigate in order to determine the source of wrongdoing and pursue maximum compensation through a settlement or jury verdict.

Examples of negligence in toy cases include:

  • Failure to include warning labels
  • Use of lead paint (particularly in toys made in China)
  • Choking hazards
  • Use of dangerous chemicals
  • Fire and/or burn danger caused by heating elements
  • Sharp edges on toys marketed to young children
