Parents rely on the child and baby products they purchase to be safe and protect their children from harm. Unfortunately, unsafe baby products are an all-too-common sight on the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission's listing of defective and recalled consumer products.

Common child injuries associated with defective products can include

  • Lead poisoning;
  • Burns;
  • Spinal injuries;
  • Head trauma or traumatic brain injury;
  • Broken bones; and
  • Loss of fingertips, digits or limb.

 

Some recent examples of unsafe baby products and associated injuries include: 

  • A recall on Simplicity cribs, which were linked to the suffocation death of at least 1 baby;
  • A massive recall on Graco drop side cribs that were linked to multiple types of child injuries and the potential for suffocation;
  • Evenflo recalled top-of-the-stair wood gates that were defective and resulted in numerous child fall injuries, including head injuries; and
  • Infantino SlingRider baby slings were recalled after 3 infants died of suffocation.

 

These are just a few examples of the types of injuries that can occur that may result in a product liability claim. To learn more about the types of injuries caused by unsafe products, visit our article library.
