California Crib and Toddler Bed Accident Law

Design flaws could make the crib and toddler bed unsafe. Potential hazards include the following:

  • Drop Side Defects- Drop sides in past crib models have been shown to malfunction unexpectedly. This poses a serious fall risk for children sleeping in the crib.
  • Poorly Designed Posts- Blankets can be tied around poorly designed posts on cribs and toddler beds. This increases the risk of strangulation.
  • Improperly Spaced Slats- Entrapment can easily occur if crib slats are not spaced correctly.
  • Defective Materials- Certain soft materials have been cited in crib recalls due to their suffocation risk. Toxic substances used in the manufacturing of any cribs and toddler beds may lead to poisoning.

Product liability laws are in place to protect consumers when a design flaw is the direct cause of a child’s injury. There are typically three parties that could be found liable in a crib or toddler bed accident when the product is defective: manufacturer, distributor, and retailer. Each case is different and the facts are examined to determine liability.

Many crib manufacturers have been found to be negligent. For instance, crib manufacturers continued to produce and distribute drop side cribs despite mounting evidence that these types of cribs are unsafe with multiple crib recalls. It wasn’t until 2012 when a federal ban was placed on drop side cribs that manufacturers finally stopped selling them.

In California, premise liability may also be applicable to your crib accident case. For instance, if your child was in the care of a daycare facility when the injury occurred, the facility may be found liable.

If your child has been injured due to an unsafe crib or toddler bed, you may be entitled to compensation. You could receive money for past medical bills along with any future medical expenses your child may require. There may be long-term therapies needed if the child suffered any neurological effects from the injury.

Are You Injured

  • This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.

Every personal injury case is unique and many factors are used to value each case. The losses from your claim include the amount of the medical bills, lost wages, pain, and suffering, etc. The most important factor is your life change resulting from the injury. Typically, the larger the injury and life change, the larger the settlement. We discuss your personal injury claim’s worth during your free consultation.

The first thing you should do is contact an attorney. Without the representation of a lawyer, insurance companies might make contact with you directly, and since they are trained to protect their best interests, this could mean a loss of rights on your behalf, especially if you unknowingly sign something that they didn't completely explain to you.

The length of a personal injury case depends on many factors including the evaluation and treatment of the injury. The bigger the injury, the longer it takes to treat. Attorney James Johnson helps you be aggressive with the treatment, so the average case normally takes between two and five months. Those who have serious injuries and need surgery may take several months longer. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
Many victims believe if you don't have health insurance you don't have a case - this NOT true. In fact, those with health insurance usually don't use it since there are so many restrictions and steps to overcome to receive authorization for treatment. Johnson Attorneys Group assists you in finding the best doctors to help. Most of them even wait until a settlement for payment. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
Handling a personal injury claim by yourself is very difficult. You will deal directly with the insurance adjuster who is often trained to obtain the information they are not entitled to use. This information can negatively impact and de-value your case. Once your case is damaged, it is very difficult to repair it and usually costs you thousands of dollars less in a settlement. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
You do not pay anything unless you win. We work on a contingency-fee-basis, so we’re only paid if we win your case. When the case is settled, our fee is a percentage, as previously agreed, of the final settlement. These fees are described in full detail in our signed contract before work begins on the case. We cover the case upfront costs including everything from copying and court filing fees to hiring experts - so all your focus can be on getting well.
