For many children, the excitement of getting the toy they had on their birthday or Christmas wish list can be extremely exciting. Parents, friends, and relatives purchasing these toys often assume that because they are sold on the shelves of their favorite retailer they are safe, but this is not always true. In fact over 200,000 children are injured annually from a defective or dangerous toy. According the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, each year they have to recall tens of thousands of toys from retailers because they are unsafe or dangerous for children.
If your child was injured by an unsafe, recalled toy, we urge you to contact the skilled Longview defective product attorneys of Erskine & McMahon, LLP.
