Milwaukee Defective Child Care Products and Toys Attorneys

Each year, many toys and products designed for children are recalled due to dangerous defects discovered after children have been injured. Over the years, child product manufacturers have imposed increasingly strict regulations on toys to ensure the safety and well being of children. While this is helpful in decreasing dangerous defects, dangerous products still manage to make their way to store shelves.

The Dangers of Defective Child Products

Toys and other child products may pose dangers to children because of:

  • Lack of warning labels: Parents and other adults may not be aware that certain toys present risks to children under a particular age if an appropriate warning does not exist on the toy.
  • Lead paint: Each year, toys are recalled because of lead paint dangers. Although banned in the U.S. because of the adverse health effects lead causes, especially in young children, toys imported from other countries may not adhere to these standards.
  • Dangerous chemicals: Some toys are manufactured with toxic chemicals such as phthalates.
  • Sharp edges or pointed ends: Sharp, jagged edges or points, often exposed after a toy is taken apart, can cause cuts, lacerations, puncture wounds, and eye injuries.
  • Heating elements: Electric or battery-powered toys may heat to dangerous levels and cause serious injuries.
  • Choking hazards: Small parts can break from toys and cause young children to choke if they put the parts in their mouths.
  • Suffocation dangers: Certain toys and toy packaging may cause a child to suffocate.
  • Noise dangers: Some toys are simply too loud for young children and can cause hearing loss.

Parents and other adults should inspect all toys and products designed for children for dangerous parts and warning labels before purchasing them. However, as demonstrated by numerous recalls each year, the dangers of toys and other products may not become obvious until after children are injured and the dangers are reported.
