Tulsa Dangerous & Unsafe Toy Injury Attorneys

Our Tulsa Attorneys Have Recovered Millions for Victims

In 2019, according to the US Consumer Product Safety Commission, approximately 224,200 people were treated in US emergency rooms for toy-related injuries. Of that number, over half were 14 years of age or younger. When you buy a toy for your child, you act in good faith that the toy manufacturer followed all manufacturing guidelines to ensure the toy is safe. Additionally, as a parent, you work hard to keep your children safe and follow all safety guidelines. Unfortunately, you have no control over negligent manufacturers, inherent design defects, or insufficient warning labels, all of which pose great danger to consumers after the product has hit the market.

Toy designers, manufacturers, and distributors have a significant responsibility to their consumers and can be held liable for defective, dangerous, and unsafe products. If your child was injured because of an unsafe or dangerous toy, you might have grounds to file a lawsuit. By taking your case to court, you have the opportunity to seek compensation for your child’s injuries. Compensation can be used for medical care, rehabilitation costs, emotional pain and suffering, and other costs associated with their injuries. You also have the opportunity to hold the responsible parties accountable and prevent something like this from happening again.

To discuss your case with a compassionate, driven attorney, call our office at (918) 347-6456 or reach out to us online. Your initial consultation is free, and you won’t owe us anything for our services until we win your case.

Common Injuries Due to Unsafe or Dangerous Toys

US toymakers follow a set of mandatory safety rules and regulations as outlined by ASTM International. The Toy Association™, Inc., a not-for-profit trade association, is equally committed to product safety. However, despite rigorous regulations, unsafe or dangerous toys make it to market every year. Typically, toys are deemed unsafe due to their design, manufacturing defects, or problems associated with their warning or labeling literature.

Examples of this include toys that include easily breakable glass parts or toys that are prone to tipping over. In other situations, toys are rated for inappropriate ages, resulting in parents unknowingly giving a dangerous toy to a much too young child. Additionally, if a toy has known hazards or risks, and no warning label is supplied, or there is a defect in that labeling, injury can occur in the blink of an eye.

Injuries associated with dangerous and unsafe toys include:

  • Blunt force injuries
  • Burn injuries
  • Chemical-related injuries
  • Choking and suffocating
  • Eye injuries
  • Facial injuries
  • Falling and impact injuries
  • Head injuries
  • Ingestion

Who Is at Risk?

While even adults can be susceptible to toy-related injuries from unsafe and dangerous toys, the younger the child is, the more hazards they face. For example, children under three years of age are at greater risk of swallowing small parts, and because their airways are smaller, they are more likely to choke. Paying extra attention to safety can help prevent an injury.

Safety tips to keep in mind when giving a toy to a child:

  • Make sure the toy is age-appropriate and follow age guidelines
  • Look over the toy for damage or defects before giving it to a child, and regularly check old toys for wear or broken parts
  • If the toy requires assembly, carefully follow the assembly instructions
  • Read and familiarize yourself with all warning labels for the toy
  • Keep choking hazards away from small children
  • Supervise your children while playing, especially young children
  • Have children wear appropriate safety gear, especially when playing with toys like scooters and building toys

As a parent, you can also keep up to date with recent toy recalls and pay attention to when child safety organizations release their yearly “dangerous toy” lists. Click here to see the World Against Toys Causing Harm (W.A.T.C.H.) 2020 “10 Worst Toys” list.

Despite our best efforts, injuries do still happen. There is not much we can do if a toy is defective or has an unsafe design. However, if your child is injured due to a dangerous toy, you can hold the manufacturer responsible.
