Nueces County Product Liability Attorneys for Injuries to Children by Defective Toys and Products

There are multiple types of defective products that can cause injuries to consumers. Unfortunately, some of these products affect those who are most susceptible to harm, including babies and children. Even though baby products, children's toys, and other items used by parents and children are meant to protect children's safety, they may have defects that put children at risk of serious injuries. Parents of children who are injured by defective or dangerous products may be uncertain of their options, but by working with an attorney who is experienced in matters involving product liability, they can take steps to hold a negligent product manufacturer responsible for the harm done to their family.

The Edwards Law Firm provides legal help in multiple types of personal injury cases, including those involving defective products. Our lawyers have more than 100 years of combined experience, and we have helped many injury victims take legal action against negligent companies or other parties who were responsible for serious injuries. We understand the difficulties that families face as they address injuries that affect children, and we are dedicated to ensuring that they have the financial resources they will need to address and recover from injuries while meeting their children's ongoing needs.

Liability for Defective Child and Baby Products

A product manufacturer may be held liable for products that caused injuries due to design defects, manufacturing errors, or a lack of proper warnings or instructions. We work with families to pursue compensation for injuries caused by:

  • Car seats - Infants and small children can be protected from harm in car accidents through the use of child safety seats. In some cases, car seats may have defective straps or clasps that do not properly restrain children, or defective latch systems may not hold a car seat securely in place. These issues can increase the chances that children will suffer serious injuries in a collision.
  • Cribs - If the railings at the sides of a crib come loose, or if the slats of a crib are spaced too widely, this may cause a child's head or other body parts to become stuck, and it can create a dangerous choking hazard. Children may also be at risk of asphyxiation or Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) because of defective crib mattresses, padding, or bumpers.
  • Baby products - Parents use multiple types of products when caring for infants and toddlers, including changing tables, high chairs, swings, bouncers, baby slings and carriers, strollers, or bath seats. If these products do not provide the proper restraints, or if they are structurally unsound, children may suffer fall injuries or other forms of harm such as drowning or asphyxiation.
  • Toys - To be approved for use by small children, toys should not have any small parts that could come loose and lead to choking hazards. Other safety issues involving toys may include sharp edges that can cause cuts and scrapes or faulty wiring that may lead to electrocution or burn injuries. Toys that contain toxic substances, such as lead paint or dangerous chemicals, may cause harm to a child and affect their growth and development.
