If your innocent child has been injured playing with a toy that was sold in the United States and claimed to be suitable for your child’s age-group, it may be in your best interest to contact a reputable unsafe toy accident law firm Washington DC parents and guardians can rely on. Even though there are many laws in place to protect consumers from unsafe products, many dangerous products are recalled each year because of injuries and deaths that are the result of them. When a person or party’s negligence results in injuring an innocent person, the negligent party may be liable for the victim’s injuries.
Unsafe Toy and Children’s Products Accidents
More than 200,000 children are treated in hospital emergency rooms in the United States each year for injuries that came from playing with toys. Unsafe children’s toys and products are recalled every year. Almost as many as 20 million Chinese-made children’s products were recalled by a major toy manufacturer in the past few years.
Even though the U.S. Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has recalled numerous dangerous toys and children’s products, hazardous items that are designed, manufactured, distributed and sold for children to use remain available to consumers.

Compensation for Unsafe Toy Accidents
When a child is injured or tragically killed by an unsafe toy or product that is intended for a child to use, you may be entitled to compensation for injuries related to your innocent child’s accident. Unfortunately, it can be difficult for a victim to get the compensation they are entitled to without the help of a law firm that is experienced in dealing with the insurance companies that are typically involved in these kinds of cases. If your child has been hurt from using an unsafe toy or product or if he or she has tragically died as a result of this, you may find it helpful to learn about your and your child’s rights by talking to an unsafe toy accident law firm Washington DC parents and guardians recommend.
When a child is injured, it is important to secure money for them in order to make sure that their medical and other needs that are related to their accident will be taken care of. While many children fully recover from injuries caused by unsafe toys an unfortunate number do not. Many children will have lifelong medical, physical and/or emotional needs as a result of their injuries. They may be entitled to have these taken care of by the party or parties responsible for making the unsafe toy available to child consumers.
