Parents Should Be Aware Of These Consumer Alerts

Much of the United States follows stay-at-home orders, although some states are opening back up for business. Still, for the most part, citizens are urged to only partake in essential activities. While doing so, the CDC recommends that they practice social distancing, but that issue is for another time. This article aims to stress some of the dangers posed to children who are stuck at home.

Florida parents need to know certain information to prevent their children from sustaining injuries. If a child gets into an accident due to a product under recall but their parents did not know about the recall beforehand, a personal injury attorney can assist them in recovering compensation from the manufacturer. Our firm offers free case reviews, and our partners have recovered more than $500 million in settlements and verdicts.

Therefore, if you believe that you have a claim, please don't hesitate to give us a call. We have represented many Floridians over the years and will gladly do the same for you. Read on to learn more about the different recall-related situations you may encounter as a parent.

Desk Chair Fall And Injury Hazard


On January 30, 2020, Pier 1 Imports recalled 6,000 desk chairs. For all of the models and model numbers, click here. The recall number for this event was 20-064. These units were sold in Pier 1 stores across the nation. Consumers were also able to purchase them through the company's website. The organization has received complaints about the chair legs breaking off. In turn, some people have sustained minor back injuries.

Right now, the majority of United States citizens are attempting to avoid doctors' offices and hospitals. However, if a product malfunction occurs while your child is sitting down doing schoolwork, they could potentially hit their head and sustain a traumatic brain injury. Stitches may be needed as well if they receive a gash anywhere on their body. Discontinue the use of the chair immediately so your child won't need medical care during the pandemic.

Power Bank Fire And Burn Hazard


The Spare Power Bank has a lithium-ion battery and is used to charge electronic devices such as smartphones and tablets. It was given out as a promotional gift to consumers nationwide at events that took place between July and September of 2019. PCNA issued recall number 20-058 for about 5,000 of the units on January 23, 2020.

This data is crucial as many kids often use their gadgets during the COVID-19 crisis. They keep in touch with friends, complete distance learning tasks, and do other activities on them. Because of that, the batteries of those gadgets are drained quickly and have to be charged. However, parents will want to remove any Spare Power Bank from their homes and keep it away from their kids as it poses a burn risk. The company has received one report of a fire breaking out because of the lithium-ion battery overheating.

Stool Fall Hazard


Veridesk issued a recall, number 20-054, on January 23, 2020. The products in question were Stand2Learn Stools. They are adjustable height pieces of furniture designed for students of any age. They were sold online at Veridesk.com, Amazon.com, Wayfair.com, and Schoolspecialties.com. Additionally, they were available through numerous other third-party sellers. Veridesk has received seven reports about the foot support bars breaking off.

No injuries have been reported to the company as of yet. However, it could just be a matter of time, so stay alert and keep your children safe.


 

Client Testimonials

Attorney David Goldman has been exceptional in the process of helping me through the case. He has always been easy to reach, whether by phone or email, and has thorough knowledge and explains clearly in depth so you feel safe and confident in your lawyer

I used Michael Babboni and his paralegal, Nicole Moore for a legal matter. They went above and beyond my expectations. During the entire process there was constant communication with both Michael and Nicole. They were extremely organized and on top of my case, which I am very grateful for. Michael truly had my best interests at heart and he was very genuine. I plan on referring Michael to all family and friends and will continue to use him in the future.

I dealt most with Mr. Fernandez. I didn’t know a lot about this process. He took the time to speak with me individually, in person, to explain everything. It was very helpful to actually know and understand the process and what to expect. He closed my case quickly, which was nice that it was not prolonged! I appreciated his hard work and getting me what I felt I deserved after my car accident. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs an honest and reliable lawyer to assist you with your case!

I hired Mr. Walsh after an automobile accident this past March. He and his entire staff were extremely professional. They kept me informed every step of the way and settled my case in a timely manner. Thank you so much for your help.
