Harrisburg Toy Injury Lawyer
Parents do everything they can to ensure their child’s safety. Obsessing over the temperature of food or bathwater, childproofing cabinetry and furniture, and vigilant monitoring of a child in public places only touch the tip of the iceberg. The one time when a parent’s guard may relax is when a child is safe at home, playing with toys that they have chosen. Sadly, it is in these trusted moments when defective toys can injure a child. There are plenty of steps in the design process where a toy manufacturer has the opportunity to acknowledge and correct these problems, yet they often fail to do so.
You should be able to trust that your child’s playtime will remain a source of development and happy memories, not a threat to his or her safety. If your child has been injured by a dangerous toy, contact the Harrisburg toy injury lawyers of Lowenthal & Abrams, P.C. at to learn more about your legal rights.
More than Just Lead Paint
The recent flurry of toys being recalled due to the violation of lead paint standards has been fodder for a seemingly endless barrage of news stories and media coverage. But it has also served as an unfortunate distraction from other prevalent toy-related concerns that injure or kill children much more frequently than tainted paint. The blame for lead paint can be laid at the feet of Chinese toy manufacturers, but many of the following hazards are attributable to toy companies here at home:
- Small magnets – when swallowed, these can puncture the stomach, intestines, and other organs
- Choking hazards – small parts that easily dislodge can obstruct your child’s airway
- Faulty electronics – electronic toys that malfunction can electrocute your child
