Danville Choking Hazard Attorneys
Every year, dozens of toys are recalled for a variety of safety and health hazards that they pose to children. Though other dangers have become increasingly common in recent years (such as lead paint poisoning), choking hazards remain one of the leading causes for toy recalls. Toy manufacturers have a responsibility to ensure that their products are safe to be used by children in the age bracket to which they market each product. When a company fails to uphold this responsibility, they can be held legally accountable for this neglect when an innocent child is harmed due to the toy.
If your child was the victim of a toy that posed a choking hazard, a dedicated Danville choking hazard attorney from Spiros Law, P.C., may be able to help you receive financial compensation for your pain and suffering. Call (217) 443-4343 to share your story with us today.
Main Reasons for Choking Hazards
There are several ways in which toys can pose choking hazards, whether it’s due to poor design or misinformation/mislabeling. Here are some of the most common ways that toys become choking hazards:
- The product contains separate pieces that are small enough for a child to put in his/her mouth.
- The toy has parts that a child can easily break off and subsequently put in his/her mouth.
- The whole toy is small enough for a child to put into his/her mouth.
These dangers are particularly hazardous when the toy is marketed to the wrong age group and a child is not able to discern the choking hazard or know better. As such, it is a manufacturer’s responsibility not only to design toys appropriately, but also to market them appropriately.
