When a product is considered defective, it’s often because the manufacturer rushes the product to market and fails to go through proper protocols to test for safety. This means some hazards make it past the safety testing and the product is put on the shelves—potential danger intact.
For a child’s toy to be defective is unacceptable as it can cause significant and sometimes fatal harm to an innocent child. Understanding what can be done should a child suffer an injury is imperative and allows the family of the child to take action and hold the negligent manufacturer accountable.
Of course, with any kind of injury comes the need for long-term medical care, especially when the injuries caused by the defect are significant. This requires the family to find a way to cover the exorbitant costs associated with medical bills, medication, and more.
Taking legal action allows the family to pursue compensation to help cover the losses associated with the injury the child suffers. This can also take into account pain and suffering the child feels and potential damages due to loss of enjoyment in life.
Forcing a Change In Procedure
Not only does taking legal action help with compensation, it can also create change and set a standard for the industry with an emphasis on safety. It shows that bypassing safety procedures for profits has consequences when this results in harm.
Taking action brings the negligence into the public eye and forces the manufacturer’s hand. The manufacturer must make it right and work in a way that protects consumers moving forward into the future. By taking action, you can help prevent others from experiencing the same harm.
