Protecting your family is probably your top priority at all times. However you may be shocked to find out that some products you are using in your home may say they are safe for your family when in fact they could cause serious injury or possibly death.
There could be a product in your home that has been poorly designed, sold with incomplete or incorrect instructions or may be at risk for malfunctioning. When you’ve been injured because of a problem with a product it is important to reach out to a Chicago products liability attorney. They can offer expertise in this type of incident and they will be able to advise you on what to do next.
The Chicago Sun Times recently reported that a woman in Chicago had a walk out bathtub installed in her home. This is an expensive product and during the second use the woman fell in the tub and became stuck in the tub. The poor woman sat in the tub water for nearly 30 hours. You may wonder why she didn’t drain the water? Well she tried and the chain on the plug broke. Her injuries were so serious that she spent the next few days in the hospital followed by 3 months in a nursing home recovering.
After an accident like this it is wise to reach out to a Chicago products liability attorney. The woman could have died in that bathtub and the company she purchased the tub from needs to take some responsibility in what happened to her. It is not normal to become stuck in a walk out bathtub.
Any product can be a liability however it is unfortunately baby and child products that cause a lot of problems. Last year drop side cribs were recalled across the country because the side could drop and cause the suffocation of the baby inside.
Crib bumpers are another dangerous product. They can suffocate babies. Bumpers are such a concern that they may be removed from the market completely.
If a product makes you nervous or has threatened an injury contact a Chicago products liability attorney. Trusting what you feel is a big part of being a parent. Use this judgment when deciding what products to buy and use for your children. Ignoring your worries about a product could result in disaster.
