Personal injury from baby products have increased in US

Comments Off

According to the Wall Street Journal, personal injury resulting from nursery products were up 11% in 2006, accounting for 66,400 personal injuries.

While not all of the personal injuries could be blamed on faulty products, many of the injuries may have been preventable. Resulting from incidents involving nursery products such as cribs, high chairs, strollers, or baby baths, majority of the accidents involved some sort of fall, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission.

Our Toledo, Ohio personal injury attorneys urge parents and caregivers to keep their children safe and free from personal injury by always knowing where they are and what they are doing, at all times. Use baby products correctly, according to manufacturers’ instructions, and never sacrifice proper installment due to time restraints or a crying baby. Always use provided straps and restraints and never leave a child unattended in an elevated position such as in a high chair or changing table.
