Celebrating Safe Toys and Gifts Month

Representing Orlando, Tampa, Miami and Nearby Areas of Florida

The holidays are a time for generosity, but it’s important to be cautious about the presents you pick out for friends and family. If you or someone you care about was injured by an unsafe gift, our Florida product liability attorneys can evaluate your case for free.

Every December is Safe Toys and Gifts Month, which seeks to raise awareness about the need to check age limits and warning labels before giving a gift to a child. Though more than 250,000 emergency room visits are linked to accidents involving toys each year, children’s playthings aren’t the only potentially hazardous items you could have under your tree.

Other gifts that could pose a threat to you and your loved ones in the event of a defect include:

  • Bicycles
  • Sports equipment
  • Ladders, power tools, and hand tools
  • Appliances and electronics
  • Food
  • Furniture and decorative items
  • Vehicles and parts

If you were injured by a defective product due to issues like unsafe design, faulty manufacturing, and inadequate labeling, you might be entitled to compensation from more than one party in the item’s chain of distribution. A qualified lawyer can identify potentially liable parties that caused the product defect and answer questions about the strength of your claim.

For a free consultation, please contact Colling Gilbert Wright & Carter or call (407) 712-7300 today. Our product liability attorneys serve clients in Orlando and throughout Florida.
