When we buy products that are designed for use by our children, we not only expect those products to perform as advertised and to do so safely, we demand it. However, unintentional injuries are the leading cause of death for many American children, and emergency rooms nationwide treat nearly 10 million children for those injuries yearly. Injuries caused by products designed for children account for thousands of those emergency-room visits.
For instance, in 2009, the Consumer Product Safety Commission reports, more than 77,000 children under the age of five were treated for injuries caused by nursery products, alone.
Families in Naples, Boca Raton, West Palm Beach and other South Florida cities trust the proven skills of Child Injury Attorney Gregg Hollander when children sustain serious injuries or lose their lives because of defective products. Especially when injuries involve youngsters, the Hollander Law Firm is known for its calm and sensitive intervention to ensure that your child’s legal rights are protected and that his or her interests are protected.
In its nearly two decades of service to the people of South Florida, the Hollander Law Firm has stepped in when poor design, manufacturing or other issues result in defective products that harm innocent children. The companies that manufacture, market and sell products designed for children have a responsibility to see that those products are safe. When they neglect that responsibility, you may be eligible to recover monetary damages for the harm their products have done to your child.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission’s work confirms that there is a wide range of products that can pose hazards to children. Among the items for which the CPSC has issued recalls or warnings, a few examples related to children include:
- Bunk beds
- Swing sets
- Tables and chairs
- Baby booties
