With summer just around the corner, many families buy above-ground pools or inflatable slides to use with in-ground pools. One thing we need to remember to do before using above-ground pools or inflatable slides is to check if the pool or slide has been recalled. Otherwise, you, your children or other family members can sustain serious injuries.
Just earlier this month, there was a recall for an inflatable slide sold between 2005 and 2009 due to the fact that it deflates during use. As a result, the user's head can hit the ground at the end of the slide. Tragically, a woman died and a woman in Allentown, PA fractured her neck.
After buying a seasonal product, like an inflatable water slide, many of us do not check the product's condition when we take it out again in subsequent years. Further, many of us do not check whether the product was recalled. Yes, there is often news coverage of product recalls, but what if you didn't watch the news that day? As a consumer, you can not depend on the media to notify you of product recalls. You need to check the condition of the product and if possible, check whether the product was recalled.
The recalled inflatable water slide also had inadequate warnings and instructions, which is one way to prove a product was defective in a products liability case. Of course, more information is needed to determine whether there is actually a dangerous products case.
