When Bad Products Hurt Good People - Your Case is Our Cause

Which Law Firm Can Help With a Lawsuit Involving Dangerous and Defective Children's Toys?

Every parent, family member, or friend expects the toys we provide the children in our lives to be safe and hazard-free. However, all too often dangerous and defective toys for children and toddlers make their way to online retailers and store shelves – these defective products eventually get recalled, unfortunately, not until a child suffers a personal injury.

Although there are federal standards and other laws which work to assure that toys are safe from unreasonable defects, these laws do not always adequately protect children and their families. That is when an attorney with expertise in handling product liability (Read: What is product liability?) cases and particularly dangerous toy cases becomes a necessity.

The attorneys at Schiffman Firm have successfully represented children injured by toys and other products that were required by law to be tested before being sold in the United States. With our extensive experience in dealing with defective products, we know how to explore the importation process and our team works closely with industry experts to evaluate the testing of imported toys and other children’s products.

Sharp Pieces, Toxic Substances, Choking Hazards

What Are Some Common Defects and Hazards in Kid’s Toys That Cause Injuries?

Strict federal safety standards and laws exist for producers and manufacturers that distribute children’s toys and products designed for kids. These regulations are in place to ensure toys and other products designed for infants and children are safe from any unreasonable defects that could potentially cause harm and personal injury.

Unfortunately, the laws do not always adequately protect children and their families. That is when an attorney with expertise in handling product liability and defective product cases becomes a necessity.

On numerous occasions, our attorneys have proven that imported children’s products and toys did not meet federal requirements. Our firm reported this to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (, and successfully settled cases even when the seller of the product insisted that the product had been tested and found to meet all federal requirements.

No matter the defect or injury, if your child was hurt by a toy or any other type of product for kids our lawyers can help. Contact us today for a review of your case.

Common defects and hazards in children's toys include:

  • Small pieces that present choking hazards
  • Battery-powered toys that overheat and cause burns or fires
  • Sharp pieces and corners that cause cuts and lacerations
  • Toxic substances and surfaces present on the product
  • Loose fasteners (screws, bolts, nuts)
  • Improperly secured battery compartments
  • Lack of product warnings or unrealistic instructions

Frequently Asked Questions

How Can I Check To See if I Have Defective Or Recalled Children's Toy Product?

The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is your number one source to learn and look up any defective products or product recalls. Their website provides a feed of the latest product recalls and instructions on what to do if a product you own is found defective and recalled.

Schiffman Firm also provides legal resources to help consumers with frequently asked legal questions and helpful videos explaining common legal matters.

You should still seek a personal injury lawyer for a consultation even if you or one of your children were injured by a product not featured on the CPSC website. The personal injury attorneys at Schiffman Firm in Pittsburgh are experts in working with victims of defective and dangerous products, including children’s toys and products.

We have seen sellers of toys repeatedly attempt to blame the parents for failing to supervise the child when a child is hurt by their defective toys. The attorneys at Schiffman Firm have used their vast expertise to show that the toy was designed or manufactured in a manner that made it defective resulting in the toy – and the company that manufactured it – being found liable for the injuries the child sustained.
