Bloomington, IL Dangerous Baby Products Lawyer

Tazewell County product liability lawyer for defective high chairs, car seats, and baby toys

Attorneys for Injuries Caused by Cribs, Strollers, and Toys in McLean County, Champaign County, and Peoria County

Parents do everything they can to keep their children safe, including using products meant to protect children from injury, ensuring that children use age-appropriate toys, and supervising or monitoring children while they are playing, eating, or sleeping. Unfortunately, children sometimes suffer harm due to defects in the products that are meant to keep them safe. In these situations, parents will want to consult with a skilled product liability attorney to learn how they can hold a product's manufacturer responsible for their child's injuries.

At Kanoski Bresney, we have more than 40 years of experience representing victims of personal injuries. We know the struggles families can face when children suffer injuries, and we will fight to protect your rights as you seek justice. With over $400 million recovered on behalf of our clients, we have the knowledge and resources necessary to make sure you are fully repaid for the harm you have suffered.

Injuries From Defective Children's Products

While all products should be free of defects that could cause injuries to their users, it is especially important for children's products to be safe. These products should be fully tested, and consumers should be provided with instructions to ensure that they can be used safely. A manufacturer, distributor, or retailer may be liable if children are injured by defective or dangerous products. Some common types of baby products that can cause injuries include:

  • Cribs and bedding - Some types of drop-side cribs have been known to cause choking hazards for small children. Padding, bumpers, or sleep positioners have been linked to Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS), and in some cases, they may lead to asphyxiation.
  • Car seats - Child safety seats should provide protection for children in the case of a car accident. Car seat defects that can increase the risk of injury include clasps that can come loose, straps that can break, or latches that do not properly secure a car seat and keep it from moving in a collision.
  • Strollers - Children can suffer injuries due to broken wheels or defective brakes on strollers, or they may fall out of a stroller due to defective straps or clasps. Defects on jogging strollers can be especially dangerous, and if their wheels come loose or lock up, this can cause a stroller to flip over and injure both the child and the parent.
  • Slings and baby carriers - While these products allow parents to carry children close to their body, defects such as clasps that come loose can cause a child to fall and suffer serious injuries. Small infants may also be at risk of asphyxia if a sling presses them too closely against a parent's body.
  • High chairs, swings, and bouncers - These devices may have defective straps that could result in a child falling out of a chair and suffering serious injuries. Children may also fall due to broken high chair legs, defective swing attachments, or bouncers that do not attach properly to a door frame or wall.
  • Bath seats - While these seats are meant to help a child sit upright in a bathtub, they can tip over, or they may not provide adequate restraints to keep children from falling out of the seat. These issues can lead to drowning.
  • Toys - Some infant toys may have small parts that can come loose and present choking hazards. Children may also be injured by sharp edges on a toy, or lead paint or other toxic substances could cause serious long-term health concerns.
