Defective Children’s Toys
When parents purchase toys for their children, they do so under the reasonable expectation that the toys will not cause injury or death. However, far too many children are seriously injured or killed each year due to dangerous and defective toys.

If you lost your son or daughter in a fatal crib accident or another type of accident involving a defective toy, we extend our sincere condolences. While we know this is an extremely difficult time, we believe that our services can help you hold negligent companies accountable and hopefully prevent future tragedy.
Case Quick Facts
According to the CPSC, in 2014, there were an estimated 251,800 toy-related injuries treated in U.S. hospital emergency departments. This number is comparable to the estimated number of toy-related injuries from 2010 to 2014, for all individuals.
Males accounted for 147,500 (59%) of the estimated toy-related injuries in 2014. Most of the deaths were related to getting hit by a car on a toy such as a scooter.
Due to their smaller upper airways and tendency to put everything in their mouths, children under age three are most at risk for choking on a toy.
Balloon strings and other items with strings account for several deaths each year. Parents often tie balloons or other items with strings to their child’s crib leading the child to grab hold of the string and wrap it around his or her neck.
Each year, companies recall dressers, shelving, and bookcases that fall on children. Children are more susceptible to tip-over accidents due to their height and that they may try to climb or stand on furniture to access something out of reach. Manufacturers may be liable for injuries that were the result of defective furniture or tip-over accidents.
Lately, spinners have become the toy of choice. The US Consumer Product Safety Commission has warned that these toys have small parts and can break creating a potential choking hazard.
