Defective Strollers Injure Children
For any parent‚ children are certainly the most cherished and precious thing in their lives. As such‚ children deserve to be given the love‚ care‚ and the best resources possible to stay healthy and safe. However‚ unsafe children’s products cause harm and injury to countless young children each year‚ including strollers. When a stroller‚ which is designed to safely transport children‚ is designed poorly or manufactured with a defect‚ your little one may suffer undue harm. Frequently‚ a hazardous flaw is not discovered until it is too late and a child has been hurt.
When your child has been injured by a product you believed to be safe‚ it is normal to feel angry as well as confused. The Jurewitz Law Group Injury & Accident Lawyers understand what you and your family may be feeling‚ but it is important to know you do have lawful rights in this situation and legal recourse against those responsible for your child’s accident. A compassionate member of our legal team can help you during this difficult time and get your child the compensation they need to heal.
Dangers of a Defective Stroller
As a parent or caretaker‚ we implicitly trust that the products we purchase for the children we love will not cause them harm‚ which is why when an unsafe stroller causes an accident‚ it can be surprising and something you can never be prepared for. A stroller with a dangerous defect can cause a number of serious injuries to your child‚ with younger kids most at-risk of suffering severe injuries. Injuries may include facial lacerations‚ back or spine injuries‚ eye injuries‚ minor or severe head injuries‚ and amputations to hand or feet. The mental trauma of a serious accident can also take a toll on your child’s emotional well-being‚ which may take even longer to recover from than a physical injury.
Recent stroller recalls have taken place as the result of:
- Risk of entrapment and strangulation
- Fingertip amputation
- Fall and choking hazards
How a Product Liability Claim Can Help
When your child is injured‚ receiving the best medical care is essential to how well‚ and how quickly‚ your child will recover. Medical care and treatment can be quite costly‚ however‚ which is why considering filing a product liability claim may be in the best interest of your child and your family. A product liability claim protects consumers from dangerous products and holds negligent manufacturers or other responsible parties legally accountable for the harm their unsafe product has caused. A successful settlement will include compensation for your economic losses‚ such as medical expenses‚ as well as the pain and suffering your child and family has endured due to the accident.
A child stroller injury may be caused by a faulty design‚ a manufacturing defect‚ or a failure to equip the product with warnings of a personal injury risk‚ so preserving the stroller will be important if you decide to pursue legal action. Keeping essential documents‚ such as medical records‚ receipts‚ and any witness statements will also help with your legal case. In addition‚ seeking guidance and support from an experienced member of the Jurewitz Law Group Injury & Accident Lawyers legal team can help you build a strong case against the manufacturer‚ who will likely have a well-funded legal team on their side.
