Today we wrap up our six-part series on children's product recalls. We have looked at the basics of these types of recalls and also took a close look at specific examples that readers should be aware of. In the end, the question you may be left with is: so how do I keep my child safe from these products? The answer is a bit difficult. While we can't even be certain that a product is going to be safe when we buy it, we can do our best to stay informed.
In today's post we continue our discussion of defective products that led to children being injured or killed. The case we will look at today has specific legal implications because the tragedy ended in a lawsuit against the product manufacturer.
Previously we looked at a case where a rubbery toy nearly suffocated a child. The incident caused the mother of the child to campaign for its removal from the market. Unfortunately, not all cases of defective products turn out this way. In many cases, the product proves to be fatal, leaving parents devastated.
In our last two posts on this topic we covered the basics of recalls related to children's products and discussed the various types of issues that may happen with certain kids' products. Today we take a deeper look at some very personal stories that either injured or took the life of a child.
In today's post, we continue our discussion on children's product recalls. While we may know general facts about the different recalls that have happened, it can be a good idea to understand what kind of issues different types of children's products may have in terms of safety.
We hear about child-related product recalls every now and then, especially when they lead to a tragic outcome. If you go to websites such as kidsindanger.org, you can read through many tragic stories of products hurting or killing children. The problem is a lot more frequent than some readers may think.
We’ve been looking in recent posts at the issue of product recalls and product liability litigation. Last time, we began looking at how product recall can sometimes, in some states, be used as evidence of liability for negligence in connection with a defective or dangerous product. That is not the case here in New York, which subscribes to the though there are certain exceptions.
Picking up where we left off in our last post, we wanted to look briefly at the issue of product recalls in the context of product liability litigation.
Last time, we mentioned a recent batch of product recalls issued last week and began discussing the importance of working with an experienced attorney to seek just compensation for injuries connected to defective products. Although litigation is not always the answer for an injured consumer, it may be necessary in some cases to ensure the consumer has a chance to be fairly compensated.
Companies recall products all the time for various reasons. In the last week, for example, a number of product recalls were issued, including three models of Coleman flashlights, a Rollerblade inline skating safety helmet, two models of Yamaha off-highway vehicles, three models of Fisher-Price cradle swings, Outdoor Gourmet marinade injectors, a model of a Staples and Quill office chair, and a Miniland Educational plush fastening toy.
