Consumer Alert News For Florida Parents - Baby Activity Walker Hazard
The majority of our audience is in Sarasota, Bradenton, and surrounding areas. Therefore, this information is intended for parents in Florida. However, if you happen to live elsewhere and come across this article, don't go away. This article could prove to be helpful to you. And if not, it's a good read, so you'll be entertained, at the very least. Guardians do what they can to protect wee little ones. They also invest in toys, walkers, and whatnot, to help kiddos get ahead.
However, sometimes, regardless of how great people's intentions are, things can backfire. For instance, a mom could run out and buy a hoverboard for their teen, only to have its battery malfunction while charging and catch the house on fire. Or, what if a dad buys his son a car in Bradenton? That happens all the time, but on this particular occasion, the vehicle has an issue. Bolts on the steering system weren't tightened correctly during the manufacturing process. Thus, while the teen driver is heading to school one day, a fastener pops free, causing him to lose control.
Obviously, parents and guardians will feel bad following such problems. After all, they bought the items. However, there were actually underlying concerns that were to blame. Thus, shouldn't the manufacturer be held liable? Thanks to manufacturer's liability, victims can hold firms accountable for negligence. Don't let the jargon throw you for a loop. We'll be explaining things right here.
What Is Manufacturer’s Liability?
Manufacturer's liability is a legal concept that holds manufacturers and sellers liable for harm products cause. Hence, if you get severely injured by a defective item, or someone you love is killed by one, you might have the grounds to seek compensation. Stay here if that sounds like something you'd like to pursue. First, we must tell you about a product that could be a danger to infants and young children. Then, we'll discuss who you need to contact for personal injury representation in the area.
Wonder & Wise Baby Activity Walkers
Recently, our firm learned that there are approximately 13,300 Wonder & Wise Baby Activity Walkers in circulation, which may harm young children. These units have rear wheels with rubber rings for traction. However, the rings can apparently separate from the wheels, posing strangulation hazards to users. Asweets, the company behind the wooden push walkers, has received ten reports of wheels and rubber rings separating thus far. Thankfully, no injuries or deaths have been reported, but it's easy to see how that could change if parents aren't aware of the issue.
So, if you have a little one, be sure to take this message to heart. Make sure your kiddo doesn't have access to this defective walker. However, if something were to happen, and your child got hurt or killed by such an item, you might have the grounds to seek compensation from the manufacturer. No amount of money will ever be enough, not to make up for what you've lost, but obtaining a settlement could be helpful during this time.
