My Son Died While Sleeping, And I Think The Crib Could Have Been Defective. Can I Hold The Manufacturer Responsible For My Son’s Death?
We are so saddened to hear of your devastating loss. Typically, the manufacturer of the product would be responsible. However, because a case of this nature is very serious, it is critical that a lawyer is retained to investigate the incident, gather evidence, and create a case to challenge the manufacturer. Unfortunately, Florida wrongful death cases can be challenging because manufacturers never want to be blamed for fatalities or have to pay for the wrongs they did.
It surprises consumers to learn just how many children’s items and furniture are made poorly, or toys are made with sharp pieces or with smaller parts that could come off and pose a choking threat. What’s shocking is that sometimes manufacturers and those responsible for these products knew about the danger and didn’t do anything to remedy it. Sadly, many manufacturers continue to market their dangerous products that could very well go on to injure or kill children.
Unfortunately, many manufacturers don’t choose to go back and redesign a product or make it better or safer because they want to get it to market and start making money. As a result, product safety is not their top priority and children needlessly suffer fatal injuries due to dangerous products.
Following the death of your son, it is critical that you speak with a Broward County wrongful death attorney to get your questions answered, find out if you have a case, and learn how to pursue a lawsuit against the manufacturer involved.
