Infant Car Seat Manufacturer Recalls 60,000 Hazardous Products

Car seat manufacturer Britax has voluntarily recalled 60,000 convertible car seats due to what it is citing as a choking hazard.

The car seats reportedly contain a chest pad on the seat that children can bite off and choke on. The product numbers for the recalled seats can be found here. Britax is also sending out replacement pads to registered car seat owners which will not tear off.

Hopefully no one was injured by this defective product. However, if you or someone you know was injured by a product like Britax or any other product you may be able to recover against them for damages in court.

In order to make a claim for product liability, you must show that you have been injured or suffered some kind of actual damage. You must also show that the product in the case was either defective or lacked proper warning or instructions. The defect or lack of warning must be shown to have been the actual cause of the injuries or damage. Additionally, you must prove that you were using the product in a way that the product was intended to be used.

However, all cases are different, and each case presents complicated facts. For example, deciding who to sue can be very fact intensive. Generally the manufacturer of a defective product can be sued. A retailer or distributor of the product is often sued alongside the manufacturer in product liability cases.

Our office handles personal injury and wrongful death litigation involving a wide variety of dangerous and defective products including:

  1. Dangerous and defective consumer products
  2. Dangerous and defective toys
  3. Dangerous and defective household appliances
  4. Product design flaws and defects
  5. Product manufacturing flaws and defects
  6. Inadequate instructions or warnings
  7. Motor vehicles, car, truck and sport utility vehicle (SUV) product cases

Please do not hesitate to give us a call (480) 874-2918 if you have questions.
