Has Your Child Been Injured by an Unsafe Toy?

By Meyerkord & Meyerkord  Nov. 13, 2010 6:25p

Whenever a toy that is discovered to be unsafe and unfit for play injures a child, the results can be devastating. A child is still growing and as a result does not realize the hazards that their play toys can cause and can suffer serious injuries while innocently enjoying a toy. Children can be grievously injured or killed while playing with an unsafe toy and the companies responsible for the manufacturing of such toys can be held accountable for the damages and losses suffered. A St. Louis personal injury lawyer can help a recovering or grieving family receive compensation from the companies responsible for the injuries caused.

There are a plethora of hazards which can cause injury or death to a child, especially toddlers, and manufacturing companies which market to children must avoid these hazards or place warnings which advise parents of the risk associated with the use of a toy. Some of the potential hazards include choking hazards with small parts, fire and burn risks, lead paint violations, puncture and laceration hazards, asphyxiation hazards, fall hazards, impalement hazards, chemical burn risks and explosion and projectile hazards. Whenever a manufacturer neglects to place appropriate warnings or allows negligent hazards to be created by their toys they are liable for the damages caused.
