Top Lawfirm for Infant Related Injuries and Deaths

On September 21, 2021, the CPSC issued a recall for over 3 million Boppy Original Newborn Loungers (also known as the Pottery Barn Kids Boppy Newborn Loungers) after 8 deaths were linked to the product. These infant deaths occurred from December 2015 through June 2020.

Unfortunately, the deaths closely resemble the tragedies caused for infant-inclined sleepers like the Fisher-Price Rock n’ Play that not only resulted in a consumer product recall, but a call for the U.S. government to get involved and create the Safe Sleep for Babies Act.
