Choking Hazards in Child Products

While many child products and toys are perfectly safe for children to handle, choking accidents are still a commonly occurring hazard. Since children have not yet fully developed, air deprivation can have serious consequences on brain function and development. In most cases, choking accidents are made possible by a particular product design flaw or manufacturing error. However, in the event that a child chokes on an unsafe children’s product, the family is often eligible to pursue compensation to help offset emergency medical costs as well as other expenses, and the attorneys at Habush Habush & Rottier S.C.® can help Madison families pursue justice in the aftermath of a choking accident.

What Causes Choking?

Choking is an extremely serious situation in which a person loses the ability to draw air into the lungs. When it comes to products and toys, choking can be caused by many factors which can include:

  • Small parts
  • Loose parts
  • Dangerous chemicals
  • Age-inappropriate design

Though supervising children is important in the prevention of choking incidents, accidents are not always within the supervisor’s control. Fortunately legal help is available to those who need it.
