Understanding Toy-Related Injuries
In 2016 alone, there were an estimated 240,000 toy-related injuries that required emergency care. These injuries all affected children under the age of 15. As parents know, children injure themselves for a wide variety of reasons, so not every toy-related injury is related to third-party negligence. There are three main types of negligence that can affect the safety of a toy:
- Design defects: The design phase is crucial and requires an understanding of the abilities of children at certain ages.
- Manufacturing defects: An error occurring during manufacturing can affect some or all of the products created. In some cases, toys manufactured in other countries do not undergo the same level of quality control enforced in the United States, allowing for flaws in production.
- Warning defects: When the warning label on a product fails to sufficiently warn consumers of the dangers of a certain toy, injuries and accidents can result. An inadequate or missing warning label can have serious consequences for a child using the product.
In many cases, by the time a company realizes there is a defect and issues a recall, significant injuries have already occurred. For these families, a recall is just too little, too late. Our team at Chanfrau & Chanfrau can investigate the cause of your child’s injury and determine who is liable.
Whether the fault lies with the designer, the manufacturer, the toy store, or all three, we can determine who was responsible and hold them accountable.
Common Injuries Caused by Defective Toys
Defects in design, manufacturing, or warning labels can lead to serious or even fatal injuries. Some of the common injuries associated with defective toys include:
- Scrapes or cuts
- Fractured or broken bones
