Children's product recalls increase

Parents in Miami know how many different products their children need. From birth, children need places to sleep, strollers and toys, among many other things. Most of the time these products are safe, but occasionally a product comes out that is unsafe and a recall is required.

The number of recalled children's products increased in 2017 over 22 percent from 2016. There were 93 children's products recalled, with 153 injuries reported. Large numbers of recalled items include plates and bowls, strollers and dry erase boards. Advocates believe manufacturers need to step up their safety measures as the number of recalled products has not decreased. Manufacturers also need to respond more quickly to reports of their product being dangerous.

When parents buy products for their children to use, they believe that the product will be safe. Most of the time this is the case, but occasionally there are serious injuries and even death that occur because of a dangerous product. These defective products are often recalled, but most of the time due to someone being injured. Florida residents who believe they were injured because of a dangerous product may want to speak with an attorney about personal injury legal options. An attorney can investigate the cause of the injury and help the victim get answers as to what happened. They can hold the manufacturer responsible for their negligence. Compensation may be available for medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages and other damages.

No one expects their child will be injured by a product that is marketed specifically for them. Unfortunately, some manufacturers do not take the steps necessary to make sure their product is safe before placing them on the store shelves. It is important to hold these manufacturers responsible so that they don't harm anyone else.
