Child Products & Toys
The recent increase in recalls of dangerous children’s products underscores the need not only for better enforcement of existing consumer laws regarding defective products and products liability accidents, but also for increasing and improving the protection our legal system is supposed to afford our most precious, yet our most vulnerable, consumers – our children. Every year, tens of thousands of youngsters needlessly fall victim to dangerous child toy defects, defective products, and products liability accidents that never should have happened. And, since tight budgets have crippled our government’s ability to regulate adequately the products that continue to harm our children, lawsuits for products liability accidents now, more than ever, in effect must be used to enforce those safety laws and standards which do exist.
Generally, those products liability cases fall into three broad categories of claims: (1) defective design accidents, (2) defective manufacture accidents, or (3) defective marketing accidents – also known as “inadequate warnings accidents.” Whether involving a child’s seatbelt failure, a bicycle defect accident, a safety helmet failure, a toy-related accident or other defective children’s product, in general the law requires proof that the defect existed when the product was sold or otherwise put into what the law calls the “stream of commerce” by its seller, distributor, lessor or other conduit. Once that is proved in court, a jury is authorized to award money compensation as reparation or reimbursement, called “legal damages,” for such things as past and future (1) medical care, (2) impairment or incapacity, (3) physical pain and suffering and (4) mental anguish, to name a few.
To recover all of those components and win full legal damages, it takes legal counsel with unmatched skill, experience, and resources. Not only must that attorney find, gather and present to the jury as much persuasive evidence as possible to win every penny owed, but also he must do it right the first time: contrary to popular belief, there can be only one trial in all but the rarest of cases. Thus, choosing the right attorney early on becomes absolutely crucial.
