The toys parents buy for their children should be safe, and most of them are. In our view at the Girardi | Keese law firm, even one unsafe toy is one too many.
Despite all the regulations about toy manufacturing, some manufacturers still make unsafe toys. The problem may be a design defect. The wrong specs might be given to the manufacturer — or the manufacturer may not follow the specifications. The manufacturing process may create defects. Retailers may not exercise due diligence before they order toys that later prove to be unsafe.
We hear the story far too often, when product defects happen, real people suffer. For more than 40 years, our product liability attorneys have fought passionately for the rights of the innocent and injured.

When a retailer ordered toy chests from a toy manufacturer, the retailer failed to notice a fatal design flaw. The lid of the chest did not meet safety regulations. A small child was killed because of that defect. Nothing will ever console the parents, but because they filed a lawsuit, they may have saved another child’s life. Girardi | Keese trial attorneys took the case to court.
When manufacturers and retailers do not take appropriate care, a toy can be covered with dangerous lead paint or may break apart easily or have too many small parts or have sharp edges. The regulations are clear, but manufacturers and the retailers they supply often are more interested in costs and profits than in assuring safety.

We know what to look for and how to prove the case against unsafe toy manufacturers and retailers.
