Toddlers are placed in cribs every day because of their comfort and safety at the youngest of ages. Parents that use a specific brand of crib are warned of a design defect that can cause children’s injuries in reality while your baby dreams peacefully.
A crib is usually the first “bed” a newborn sleeps on by themselves. Our personal injury lawyers know the vulnerability of newborns to serious personal injury increases because there are many aspects of a crib that can cause broken bones or other children’s injuries (i.e. getting proper sheets to prevent strangulation/suffocation, resulting in brain injuries or the unthinkable wrongful death of one’s child).
According details of the recall in the products liability warning from the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), the slats, small strips of wood, can break that leave a gap where small children can get trapped or strangled as a result of the design defect.
About 96,000 cribs made by Jardine, a company in Taiwan, were recalled from Toys “R” Us, Babies “R” Us, KidsWorld and Geoffrey stores when the CPSC received over 30 reports of the design defect in the slats causing personal injury to their children.
As personal injury attorneys, we believe since babies are left in cribs alone every day, manufacturers need to make sure the product they make does not have any design defects that could harm the babies sleeping in them. The lack of size in children leads to the possibility of more serious personal injury if they are hurt in any way.
