Kankakee Choking Hazard Lawyers
The children’s toy industry continues to progress and create more technologically advanced products each year. Many companies feel the pressure to produce new products at a faster rate in order to compete with their rivals. Unfortunately, this can sometimes lead to unsafe products reaching the market where parents buy them for their children to play with. In some cases, toys with small parts are released without the proper warning on the package, and children may be gravely harmed by an undisclosed choking hazard.
If your child has choked on a small or removable piece of a toy, the manufacturer may be legally responsible for the harm that he or she has sustained. We can help you to bring a product liability lawsuit if appropriate. To learn more about your legal options, contact the Kankakee choking hazard attorneys of Spiros Law, P.C., at (815) 929-9292 to schedule an initial consultation.
Common Choking Hazards
Toymakers are required to provide potential customers with the proper and accurate warning labels on toys that have small parts. Moreover, they must specify the age range for which the toy is intended, as older children, for example, may be less likely to be at risk of choking. The failure to adequately fulfill these responsibilities is inexcusable, and children may be harmed by the following choking hazards:
- Small spherical or ball-shaped objects like marbles
- Balloons that are not inflated or not fully inflated
- Detachable magnets
- Toys with small parts that can easily break off
It understandably comes as a great shock when one’s child is harmed by a toy with which he or she was playing. By bringing a civil lawsuit against the manufacturer, you can attempt to secure not only financial compensation but also justice for your family and perhaps even changes which will prevent others from suffering the same trauma.
