Choking Dangers of Child Products

When choosing toys for children, it is important for parents and caregivers to consider the safety of the product as well as how it will affect the child developmentally. Many manufacturers take extra precautions to verify that toys are safe for children to use; however, children are still at risk of sustaining injuries from their toys. Choking is one of the most common injuries related to unsafe toys. The Milwaukee attorneys at Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® understand that, even with proper supervision, children can still be the victims of serious choking accidents, and we are prepared to help families pursue compensation in the event of such an incident.

Choking Hazards

In order to maximize the safety of children’s toys, manufacturers must meet certain criteria. Unsafe products may have the following:

  • Small / loose parts
  • Inhalants / dangerous chemicals
  • Age-inappropriate design

Though these risk factors don’t always cause accidents they greatly increase the likelihood of one occurring. Fortunately, in the event of an emergency situation, an attorney can help assess whether families are eligible to hold negligent manufacturers accountable.
