What Should You Do After A Car Accident?

Choking Injuries

When you give your child a toy, you do so with the intention to make your child happy and provide entertainment and joy. You trust toy manufacturers to create toys for children that are safe and hazard free, but unfortunately, this is not always the case. Sadly there are frequent cases of toys with choking hazards being distributed to the ones who are most likely to be harmed by these dangers.

At the offices of Jacksonville choking injury lawyer Don Guthrie, we hope that holding toy corporations responsible for their decisions can make the world a safer place. By showing companies that injuring their customers will lead to embarrassing trials and financial loss, we can help influence corporations to carefully test their designs and carefully oversee the manufacturing of their products.

Choking Hazards

While many children’s toys are created to prevent choking accidents, mistakes are often made and a lack of oversight can lead to some highly dangerous toys making it onto shelves, into your home, and into the hands of your innocent child. Some common choking hazards include:

  • Small parts which can easily make it into the mouth of a child
  • Easily breakable toys which can create tiny pieces
  • Removable parts of a toy
  • Toys with mushy or soft consistency
  • Throat shaped toys, such as marbles or other small spheres

These hazards can happen unexpectedly when a toy is developed for a child without the proper regulations and oversight.

Examples of Choking Injuries

Children who suffer from contact with a choking hazard can be the victim of any of the following injuries:

  • Throat Abrasion
  • Torn Ligaments
  • Brain Damage
  • Suffocation
  • Death
  • Damaged Muscles and Bones in the Torso Area (caused by use of the Heimlich Maneuver)

If the negligence of a toy manufacturer has created a choking hazard and made your child suffer any of the above injuries, they must be held accountable for their poor decisions.
