Dangerous products can be fatal to babies

Welcoming a new baby into the world can be one of the most joyous times in a young couple's life in Tennessee. In preparing for the new arrival any number of purchases may be made to ensure that the new bundle of joy can start a new life in comfort and safety. Fisher Price has long been respected as a brand name in baby supplies. Sadly, one of its very popular products, the Rock 'n Play, has been deemed hazardous and is among items considered to be dangerous products.

As many as 10 children have died while using the portable sleepers. The babies who died were all around 3 months of age. They apparently rolled to their stomach or side while in the sleeper.

Fisher Price had issued a warning about the sleeper in regard to the previous deaths which have occurred since 2015. The warning did not indicate the cause of the deaths. The most recent death occurred within the last month. The Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) is currently investigating the situation and may recommend a recall.

Babies come into the world completely dependent on parents to care for all of their needs. Parents in turn rely on the manufacturers of baby products and organizations such as the CPSC to provide safe and functional merchandise to help them care for their newborns. When such items turn out to be dangerous products the results can be tragic in Tennessee. Nothing can undo the tragedy but a consultation with a personal injury attorney can help a client determine if a civil lawsuit is possible. A successfully litigated claim can provide compensation for medical costs, final costs (when applicable) and other verifiable losses.
