Defective Baby Crib Accidents & Lawsuits
A parent’s worst nightmare
We’ve come to expect that the cribs in which our infants and toddlers sleep are safe and secure.
But what if that turns out not to be true?
Imagine tucking your little one in for the night, only to find, in the morning, that your child had been injured or even killed by a defective crib?
There is no adequate way to describe that kind of suffering.
Even worse – what if that kind of horrible accident occurred when your child was at daycare or preschool? Who’s to blame then?
Defective cribs do happen
Unfortunately, not all cribs for infants and toddlers are created equal. Some, in fact, have been recalled because of dangerous defects. Others have caused permanent injuries and deaths.
If this ever happens in your family, you need an attorney who can help you right this terrible wrong. You need the experts at TheLawFirm.com.
Cribs can be defective for a number of reasons.
• The spacing between slats may be inappropriate or unsafe
• The corner posts may be too small, too weak, or too sharp
• The mattress support can become dislodged
• The rails may be of insufficient size or shape
• The hardware may be attached improperly
• Any number of surfaces or edges may be sharp or cracked
For seemingly simple devices, cribs can fail – and cause serious hazards to your child – in a great many ways.
What kinds of injuries can a crib cause?
A defective crib can cause a wide range of injuries, depending on the particular defect and the situation. Defective cribs have been implicated in, among other types of injuries:
• Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS)
• Nerve damage
• Traumatic brain injuries
• Soft tissue damage
• Broken limbs, extremities, or facial bones
• Head injuries of various kinds
What can I do if my child has been injured by a defective crib?
If you believe that defects in your crib have caused your child’s injuries, the first thing to do is get your child to a doctor and follow his or her instructions.
Next, before you use the crib again, take pictures of it, especially of the defective parts. Document as carefully as you can exactly what happened to cause your child’s injury.
Once that’s done, it’s time to call TheLawFirm.com. The consultation is free.
Depending on the situation, a defective-crib lawsuit may seek to recover damages from one or more of several parties:
• The manufacturer of the crib
• The manufacturer or one of more of the crib’s component parts
• The vendor of the crib
• The facility (e.g., daycare facility or preschool) in which the crib was used
