The winter holidays can be a time of happiness and joy, filled with the small pleasures of watching a loved one’s face light up as they open a special present. Unfortunately, dangerous or defective toys may pose a serious injury risk to young children. The Consumer Product Safety Commission is responsible for testing new toys to ensure they are safe to operate and labeled for the correct age group. However, the process is imperfect, and at times, a dangerous toy may slip through the cracks and make it to the shelves just in time for the holiday rush.
If you or someone you know has been injured by a defective toy, you deserve to be compensated for your pain and suffering.

Defective Toy Injuries
A toy that does not function the way it was intended to or is improperly labeled for a younger than appropriate age group can result in serious injuries, such as:
- Lacerations and puncture wounds
- Ingestion of toxic materials
- Chemical burns
A toy manufacturer that rushes a dangerous product through screening processes can be held liable for the injuries their negligence causes.
