Committed to Your Recovery

Pittsburgh Child Product Liability Lawyer

Children's Products Recalled Due to Safety Hazards

There is nothing more important than the safety of our children. As parents, we do everything we can to protect our kids from harm, but sometimes, we need to rely on the manufacturers of children’s products to do their part as well. Unfortunately, many companies put profits over the safety of children and sell defective, dangerous products that can cause serious injuries or death.

At Friday & Cox, our Pittsburgh child product liability attorneys are dedicated to protecting the rights of children and their families. We have extensive experience handling complex product liability cases and a proven track record of success. Our firm has the resources to take on large corporations and their insurers, and we are not afraid to fight for our clients in court.

If your child was injured or killed by a defective product, call (412) 900-8250 or contact us online. We offer free initial consultations and contingency fees, which means you do not owe us any attorneys’ fees unless/until we recover a settlement or verdict for you.

Who is Liable for a Defective Children’s Product?

When a child is injured or killed by a defective product, the manufacturer of the product may be held strictly liable for the child’s injuries and losses. This means the manufacturer may be held liable for the child’s injuries and losses even if the manufacturer was not negligent in any way.

In addition to the manufacturer, others in the chain of distribution may also be held liable, including:

  • The manufacturer of component parts used in the product
  • The party that assembles or installs the product
  • The wholesaler
  • The retail store that sold the product
  • And others

The child’s family does not need to prove that the manufacturer or any other party was negligent in order to recover compensation. However, the child’s family does need to prove that the product was defective in some way that made it unreasonably dangerous.

There are three main types of product defects, including:

  • Design defects
  • Manufacturing defects
  • Marketing defects

How Can a Child Product Liability Attorney Help?

When a child is injured by a defective product, the child’s family may be left to face many serious challenges. For example, the family may need to pay for extensive medical treatment and rehabilitation, and the child may require ongoing care for the rest of his or her life. In the worst cases, a child may be killed and the family left to deal with the emotional trauma of losing a loved one.
