Faulty highchairs could turn into products liability claims

Protecting their children is a preoccupation with many Georgia parents. They try to make sure that their homes are "baby-proofed," having toys do not present choking hazards and clothes that are flame retardant. Internet research and talking with other parents helps them choose products designed for safety. So what happens when a defective product leads to tragedy? Those parents whose children suffer injuries from these dangerous items may file products liability claims seeking restitution and justice.

Graco, the popular manufacturer of children's' items, recently announced the recall of approximately 3,600 highchairs here in the United States due to reports of children falling. The back leg of the highchair could "turn out of position," which could cause the child in it to fall out of it. Even though the only injury reports at this point are bumps and bruises, the potential for serious injuries exists.

The product in question is the company's Table2Table 6-in-1 highchair. The chairs subject to the recall were sold at Walmart stores across the country for around $100 between Oct. 2016 and Dec. 2017. The potential for injury is not only great enough to warrant a recall, but also great enough that Graco is urging parents to immediately stop using the chairs.

The problem with recalls is that they do not always reach consumers in time. Right now, it is just bumps and bruises, but that does not mean that injuries that are more serious are not possible. Georgia parents whose children suffer serious injuries due to defective products such as this one may benefit from discussing the situation with a products liability attorney.
