Lexington Defective Toy Attorney
Representation from Skilled Lexington Product Liability Lawyers
When parents, grandparents, and other people purchase toys for children, they expect that the toys they buy in retail stores and online are safe for the children to play with. Most toys are safe, but, unfortunately, there are some toys which can cause serious and even fatal injuries to children who play with them. When a toy injures a child because its design makes it unsafe or it malfunctions, the manufacturer of that toy and/or the manufacturer of component parts that were used to make that toy may be liable to the child and their family for their injuries and damages. If a child dies from injuries caused by an unsafe toy, their family may be able to file a wrongful death lawsuit against the parties who could be found responsible for their loss.

Hazards of Defective Toys
When a toy is defective, any child who plays with it is in danger of being injured, or even killed by it. The types of injuries that can be caused by toys vary greatly. For example, toys that are marketed for infants or toddlers can pose a choking hazard if they have small pieces that can fall off of them. A toy with electronic components can cause electric shock if the components can easily be accessed by a child as they play with the toy. Motorized toys are popular, but wherever there are moving parts, the risk of injury increases greatly. Some materials that are used in toy manufacture, such as the lead paint that most parents are shocked to discover is still sometimes used on toys, are threats to the health and safety of children.
Filing a Product Liability Lawsuit for a Defective Toy
When an injury is caused by a toy, a product liability lawsuit provides a mechanism by which the child and their parents can obtain financial recovery for the pain, suffering, and costs associated with the injuries that were caused by the toy. Product liability attorneys know what to look for, as far as which safety standards apply to what types of toys, which parties could potentially be liable to the injured child and their family, and other things that are unique to product liability lawsuits. A skilled product liability attorney can uncover the reason for the injury, as well as the parties whose acts or omissions contributed to it.
