Defective Products and the Holiday Season

Posted by on

When we say the words “defective product” we think of medications, medical devices, car brakes, construction tools, and things of that nature. But there are many unexpected defective products that can cause serious injury, many of which may be received as gifts during the holiday season. NBCBayArea.com reports that while dangerous product recalls are down this year, there are still plenty of dangerous toys out there such as the Captain America Soft Shield PIRG found at Toys R Us which the story reports contained 29 times the legal limit of lead.

What Can I Do To Keep My Child Safe?

There are a few precautions parents can take.

  • Do your research before purchasing items. Many dangerous hazards can be avoided by using Google to find complaints and reported defects in your products before you purchase them. A simple search of the product name along with the word “review” or “defective” will usually give you a good idea of what consumers have identified.
  • Stay away from products containing small parts that could be ingested accidentally. This is one of the more common issues in recent years.
  • Look for toys that are well constructed.
  • Avoid toys with sharp edges and points.
  • Read all warning labels to be sure you are aware of known potential dangers.
  • Keep a close eye on your children while they open and play with their toys.

If you or your child has been seriously injured, contact an attorney
