Choose Safe Gifts for the Holidays
December is Safe Toys and Gifts Month, a time to remember the importance of checking warning labels and age limits before giving a gift to a child. If you or someone you know was injured by an unsafe gift in the Dallas area, a product liability lawyer at the Turley law Firm can evaluate your case for free.
The holidays are a time for generosity, but it’s important to use good judgment when choosing gifts for friends and family. Every year, more than 250,000 emergency room visits are linked to accidents involving toys. However, children’s playthings may not be the only dangerous consumer products lurking under your tree.
Common holiday gifts that could potentially cause harm in the event of a defect include:
- Vehicles and parts
- Furniture and decorative items
- Electronics and appliances
- Hand tools, power tools and ladders
- Sports equipment
If a defective product caused your injury, whether by inadequate labeling, faulty manufacturing or unsafe design, you may be entitled to compensation. An experienced attorney can identify potentially liable parties that are responsible for the product defect and can help determine the strength of your case.
The holidays can get hectic, but it is important to remain vigilant when picking out stocking stuffers, especially for children.
