Parents, grandparents, and family friends often take great pleasure in choosing and purchasing toys as gifts for young children. They consider many things when they are shopping for a new toy, including whether it seems to pose any danger to a child’s welfare.
This makes the situation even more troubling when a manufacturer’s negligence results in the sale of a product that is defectively designed or made and consequently threatens the safety of any child who plays with it. Each year there are many families who must cope with the shock and trauma of injuries caused by dangerous toys or childcare products.
If your son or daughter has been hurt by a defective or malfunctioning toy or childcare product then it may be appropriate for you to consider filing a civil lawsuit seeking financial compensation for medical bills and other associated damages.

Dangers to Children
Children lack the knowledge and awareness to observe most dangers before it is too late to avoid serious injury, and young babies do not have the physical ability to respond or communication skills to alert adults. Yet despite this heightened degree of danger, children’s products can be hazardous. Some of the commonly recalled items include:
- Toys with small or removable parts
- Toys with electronic components
There is no justification for placing a dangerous children’s product on the market. If your child has been harmed by a poorly made or falsely advertised toy or product, you have the right to pursue fair compensation.
No child should be victimized by the negligence of a toy or childcare product manufacturer. To learn more about personal injury law and how it may affect your family, the Des Moines child injury attorneys of LaMarca Law Group, P.C., at (515) 705-0233.
