Although designed to keep your child safe, some strollers may be classified as a defective product. If a defective stroller has caused your child injury, you may have grounds for a product liability complaint and could be due compensation to cover damages, like medical expenses and more. Contact D.J. Banovitz, a product liability attorney in Thornton, to go over your case.
Possible Defects and Injuries
A stroller can prove to be a defective product in a number of ways, from loose parts and inadequate materials, to problems with the wheels or even defects in the manufacturer’s design. Unfortunately, accidents caused by a defective stroller can cause serious and painful injuries, especially to someone as young and helpless as a baby.
Possible stroller injuries include:
- cuts, lacerations and abrasions;
- finger amputations and injuries;
- choking (due to loose parts);
- head or spinal cord injuries;
- broken bones;
- sprained ankles;
- eye injuries; and
- emotional trauma.
If your child was hurt in an accident caused by a stroller, consider filing a product liability complaint. It could garner you compensation for the medical bills, pain and suffering, and other damages you or your child has incurred. Call a product liability attorney in Thornton at the Law Office of D.J. Banovitz to review the damages you have experienced.
When seeking medical attention or other treatment for your child’s injuries, be sure to keep all receipts, bills and paperwork you receive. These documents could help your attorney build a case and accurately determine the amount of compensation you should receive.
Filing a Products Liability Complaint
If you choose to file a suit against the manufacturer of your child’s stroller, contact a product liability attorney in Thornton first. Some liability cases can prove to be very complicated, as fault can, depending on the circumstances, lie not only with the manufacturer of the stroller, but also with parties involved in its design, distribution or sale. Having a legal professional on your side can help sort things out.
If you plan to file a claim against the manufacturer of a defective product, it is important to act immediately. The statute of limitations on a product liability complaint is only two years, meaning you have just two years from the date of the accident in which to file a lawsuit. Otherwise, you risk losing out on compensation.
