As parents, the last thing we want is for our children to get injured by a baby product. Therefore, it is important for parents to register baby products, such as cribs, high chairs, strollers, and other baby equipment. This way, if the products are recalled, parents can receive notification about the recall.
Unfortunately, injuries do happen. If your child was injured by a recalled baby product, your child may be entitled to recovery. If the recalled product was defectively designed or has inadequate instructions or warnings, there may be a products liability case. To discuss your child’s products liability case in PA or NJ, feel free to contact the personal injury lawyers at White and Williams LLP. 877.944.8396
