Experienced New Jersey Personal Injury Lawyers Examine Defects in Recently Recalled Bumbo Baby Seats and Other Similar Products
Society places a trust in the manufacturers of products designed for babies and small children that carries with it the burden of ensuring the safety of our most vulnerable. Literally the most precious amongst us, the safety and well being of our youngest shouldnever be compromised. Unfortunately, from time to time this is not always the case.
Bumbo International Trust, manufacturers of Bumbo baby seats, is recalling about four million baby seats that were sold at major retailers including Target, Wal-Mart, Sears, Babies “R” Us and Toys “R” Us, as well as on the internet and at many other stores nationwide. The recall follows a similar 2007 recall and comes after reports that at least twenty-one babies fell from the seats and fractured their skulls. Sadly, the overall number of those injured is much greater.
If your child has been the victim of injury due to these defective and dangerous products, you have recourse. A claim on behalf of the child may help you and your child gain significant compensation for the cost of treatment, future medical care, lost wages associated with caring for the child, physical pain and suffering, and even emotional distress. It is important to hold accountable those who violate consumer product safety rules and needlessly endanger the public. By allowing for this compensation, dangerous conduct by corporations is prevented in the future.
Fighting back against the manufacturers of unsafe products not only can help compensate you and your child for the injuries that resulted from the manufacturers negligence, but helps protect others by ensuring that those who design, manufacture and sell these substandard products choose to never again sacrifice safety for the sake of profit.
