Child Toy Recall Lawyer in Los Angeles
Our Legal Team is Ready to Stand By Your Side
Every day, parents purchase toys for their children, most often trusting
that the product was designed, manufactured, and sold with the safety
of children in mind. However, similar to other products, many toys are
created and sold with defects that have the ability to injure a child.
When a children’s toy is found to be defective, manufacturers and
sellers are required to recall that product immediately. In some cases,
these products are recalled before any injuries are reported and, in other
cases, recalls occur far too late, and
the faulty product has already seriously or fatally injured a child or children.

the manufacturer should be held liable for the damages, we urge you to

What are Toy Recalls?
The recall of a toy is a request for consumers to return hazardous and
faulty toys to the manufacturer. In most cases, recalls are an attempt
to safeguard the public from injuries and the corporation from financial
liability for any harm caused by the toy’s defects. According to
the Consumer Product Safety Commission, a toy recall can be issued after
reports of injury or safety-threatening incidents have occurred.
After the faulty toy is put on the market and sold to consumers, depending
on the toy’s availability and the toy’s popularity amongst
consumers, it has the ability to injure thousands of children. However,
many manufacturers will delay a recall because this process is often costly.
As a result, recalls are formed too late and many children suffer harm
as a result of the delayed recall. This is why it is important for manufacturers
to recall defective toys right away.
Can I Only Sue if the Product Was Recalled?
In some cases, a plaintiff will claim that the recall of the toy constitutes
an admission that a defect, in fact, exists. However, the recall does
not necessarily prove the product’s faultiness. For example, a product
can be recalled if a defect is suspected but has not yet been indicated.
Before the plaintiff can recover compensation, he or she must prove that
the toy was defective by design or manufacturing, and that defect directly
caused the child’s injuries or death. In some cases, the recall
is enough to serve as proof.
If a recall provides evidence that the toy’s defect existed when
the toy left the manufacturing company, the recall can be considered as
relevant proof when determining which damages should be paid to the victimized
party. However, if the defect of that specific toy is not related to that
recall, the recall, itself, may not be relevant when proving a manufacturer’s
