Toy Injuries and Product Liability

During the holiday season, parents, grandparents, and family friends often head to toy stores to purchase gifts for the small children they know. Unfortunately, toys may have small parts, sharp edges, and defects that can cause serious injuries to children during play. Such injuries may require hospitalization, rehabilitation, and can have lasting effects on the health of a child.

It is the responsibility of toy designers and manufacturers to make sure that toys they produce are free from defects and are properly labeled to warn of small parts and other hazards. If someone you love has been injured due to a defective toy, contact the Lake Geneva product liability lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® at 800-242-2874 today.

Common Toy Defects

Unfortunate toy defects may include:

  • Sharp edges that can cause serious cuts and lacerations
  • Tiny pieces that can be harmful if swallowed
  • Exposed wires or battery packs that can cause electrocution
  • Harmful projectiles that can cause serious injury
  • Lead-based paint and other poisoning hazards

Children who are hurt by defective toys may be forced to deal with pain, mental and emotional trauma, and other problems as a result of their injuries. The toy designer or manufacturer may be held liable for damages caused by the defective toy through a product liability lawsuit.
