Winnebago County Defective Product AttorneyThe U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is the government agency tasked with ensuring consumer products are safe. The agency frequently issues product recalls, but tragically, recalls are often not enough to prevent injuries and deaths caused by dangerous or defective products.

If your baby died and you suspect that a defective product was the cause, you may be looking for answers. You may wonder if there is anything you can do to seek justice on behalf of your child and hold the at-fault company responsible for this tragedy.

Unsafe Infant Products and Wrongful Death

Parents trust that products designed for infants are safe for infants. Unfortunately, baby and child products are frequently recalled due to safety hazards.

In most cases, parents must return to work shortly after the child is born so that they can adequately provide for their family. When this time comes, it is common for parents to pick out a daycare.

Did Your Child Suffer Injuries at  Daycare?

Children of all ages come home with scrapes and small bruises after a day away from home. This is not all that uncommon or necessarily concerning. Accidents certainly happen, especially with small children. However, many injuries are entirely preventable and in some cases, would have been avoided had the daycare acted more responsibly. 

Certain types of accidents are more likely to cause injury at a daycare. While some playground accidents can be minor, others can be much more serious, resulting in injuries such as concussions, bone fractures, and internal injuries. Loose and falling objects are also a common cause of child injury, sometimes causing children to suffer bruises, head injuries, and broken bones.

When employers and contractors do not uphold expectations to follow regulations and properly train their employees, workers are put at even greater risk of harm. When workers are not prepared to face these dangers, they may not be able to effectively recover compensation for their injuries. However, an experienced attorney can help workers to follow the necessary steps to start their recovery after a construction accident.

Immediately Seek Medical Attention

When dangerous accidents occur on a construction site, employees are vulnerable to suffering catastrophic injuries such as imputation of an appendage, broken bones, severe burns, lacerations, eye injuries, and even death. However, some injuries, such as traumatic brain injuries and spine injuries are not accompanied by instantaneous symptoms. Therefore, it is critical for anyone involved in a construction site accident to seek medical care after the event immediately.
