The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) reports that approximately 181,000 children ages 15 and under were treated for toy-related injuries in 2010. While that number is still considered to be high, stronger safety rules have helped lead to safer toys.
Since the year 2008, there has been a continuous decline in toy recalls, a result of greater safety measures being taken by retailers and manufacturers of children products.
Some of the safety efforts have included:
There are certain items that should be avoided when it comes to toy shopping including balloons, magnets, small parts on toys, and riding toys. In fact, non-motorized scooters continue to cause the most injuries. All of this should be kept in mind as you prepare to do your holiday shopping.
If your child was seriously injured as a result of a dangerous product, then you may be entitled to compensation. You should consult with a Pennsylvania dangerous product attorney to learn what options are available.
