My 8 month old baby swallowed 2 magnetic balls from my older son's magnetic building set and had to get surgery to remove the pieces. I just found out that the building set was recalled. Can we recover my son's medical expenses because the toy was recalled?

 

A:

You can recover the medical expenses if you have a products liability case (a dangerous products case) against the manufacturer of the toy.  There are also other damages your son can recover for pain and suffering and/or future medical expenses.

There are different types of products liability cases:

  • manufacturing defect cases;
  • design defect cases; and
  • improper warning or lack of warning cases.

It is difficult to fully evaluate what type of products liability case your son may have without knowing other information, such as:

  • whether the magnetic building set had proper labeling;
  • whether the magnetic building set had instructions or warnings of the dangers; or
  • whether there was a design or manufacturing defect.

Products liability cases can be complicated; therefore, it is vital that you speak to a seasoned Philadelphia, PA products liability lawyer to evaluate your son's potential dangerous products case. We also help injured children and victims in New Jersey.  877.944.8396.
