25 Jun Parents Beware of These 5 Dangerous Products for Children (Pt. 1)
Parents want to be able to trust that the manufacturers who make products and toys for their children will only use safe materials and will test the safety of these products before selling them. Unfortunately, however, this is not always the case, as a rush to increase profits can lead some manufacturers to put potentially dangerous products for children on the market.
In this two-part blog, we’ll discuss some common, potentially dangerous products for children. Parents whose children may have been hurt by any of these – or any other – products should know that:
- They can hold negligent manufacturers responsible for their children’s injuries by pursuing product liability lawsuits.
- Richard Langerman has the experienced and resources necessary to fight for these families’ rights and help them obtain the compensation and justice they deserve when dangerous products hurt children.
A Look at Potentially Dangerous Products for Children
Some of the most common products that have been known to be risky and dangerous for children include:
Although children love playing on trampolines, these devices can be extremely dangerous – potentially leading to broken bones, dislocations, back injuries and head injuries. The risks of accidents and injuries tend to increase when:
- More than one child is jumping on a trampoline at the same time.
- Trampolines are left out in the elements, which can cause crucial parts of these contraptions to wear or breakdown.
2. Drop-Side Cribs
The Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) officially banned drop-side cribs in the U.S. in 2011. Despite this ban, however, these cribs may still be sold at secondhand stores, garage sales or resale shops. Parents looking for a deal should avoid buying these cribs for their children, as the reported dangers associated with these cribs include suffocation or strangulation if (or when) the drop-side falls down on a baby.
While at least 32 infants in the U.S. have reportedly been killed due to drop-side crib defects since around 2000, the CPSC has recorded hundreds of other incidents and accidents associated with the use of these cribs.
