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.
If your child or the child of a friend or family member has been injured or suffered a fatal accident by a dangerous and defective toy or children’s product, find the right attorneys at Schiffman Firm. We have achieved millions of dollars in settlements and verdicts which have gone to the benefit of children and their families. There are no costs or fees for our representation in personal injury accident cases unless we recover money on behalf of our client.

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 (CPSC.gov), 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.

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

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