This type of hazard highlights the need for consumers to be vigilant regarding items purchased for children. Many unsuspecting buyers assume that because a product has reached the store shelves, it has been properly designed and tested. Unfortunately, this is not necessarily so. Even one act of negligence during the process from a product’s conception to its sale can cause catastrophic injuries and wrongful death once the product reaches unsuspecting consumers. If you or a family member have suffered significant personal injuries as the result of a defective product or negligence, contact the law office of Swartz & Swartz, P.C. Call (617) 742-1900 in the Boston area, or for clients in greater Massachusetts, New England, or other states across the U.S., call toll-free at 1-800-545-3732.
