What to Do if Your Child is Injured by a Defective Toy

If you are a parent, your children are likely in contact with dozens of various products everyday. For the safety of your children, it is imperative that these goods have been properly designed and manufactured. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. Toys and other products intended for children are released into the marketplace all the time, and sometimes these products end up having defects that pose a hazard to children.

So what happens if your child is injured by a defective toy? Of course, the first priority is ensuring the child receives all necessary medical treatment. Follow all of the doctor’s recommendations and get your child the treatment he or she needs to recover.

Products Liability Claims for Defective Toys

If you plan to pursue a claim against the manufacturer of the defective product, there are several things you will need to do to prove your case. For one, make sure you save any documentation you have on the product, including receipts and packaging. Document your child’s injuries by photographing any external injuries, and also be sure to keep an organized record of medical treatment.

You will also want to consult a personal injury attorney as soon as possible to discuss your claim. Your attorney will help you file your claim, negotiate a settlement, and determine whether you should file a lawsuit.

“A products liability claim can help you recover compensation for your child’s injuries, as well as help deter the company from continuing to produce dangerous products,” said Attorney Walter Clark, founder of Walter Clark Legal Group.
