Parents buy toys for their children to keep them entertained and having fun. However, children’s toys are one of the largest categories of recalled children’s products in the United States every year. Toy companies provide warning and safety labels on toys, but there are sometimes unforeseen hazards that can put your child at serious risk. Fortunately, a claim could be made against the toy retailer, supplier, distributor or manufacturer if your child has been exposed to an unsafe toy, and you may be able to receive financial compensation for any damages.
COMMON INJURIES CAUSED BY DANGEROUS TOYS
Oftentimes, children reach for a toy without thinking twice. They are extremely vulnerable to hazardous designs because they may not be capable of immediately determining what is safe and unsafe. For example, toys with small parts, sharp edges, high voltage currents, or flammable fabrics can put children at serious risk if they are inaccurately labeled or irresponsibly sold to young children. Common injuries caused by toys include:
- Lead Poisoning
Any product that unduly endangers another person is unacceptable. If a defective toy is sold to a child, your family should not be responsible for any damages that occur.
