Pennsylvania Toy Defect Injury Attorneys

Table of Contents

    When you buy a toy or product for your child, you are entitled to believe the product is safely made, and will not bring harm or death to your child. Unfortunately, every day we hear reports of dangerous and defective toys and children’s products that have harmed or catastrophically injured innocent children. The most common injuries to children from toys and products include lead poisoning from toys covered with lead-based paint, choking and suffocation from small components or pieces that break apart easily, strangulation from strings or ropes, and lacerations, fractures, and burns from defective or dangerous products.

    Injuries Can Result from Playing with Defective or Recalled Toys

    Products that are cheaply made in facilities with little to no quality control account for an overwhelming number of the reported injuries. Within the past few years, news reports have been flooded with reports and recalls of toys manufactured in China that contained lead in toxic levels. Lead-paint poisoning can permanently damage brain cells causing learning disabilities and behavioral problems. Children sometimes also suffer from delayed growth, loss of speech skills, kidney failure, hearing loss, ADHD, and encephalopathy as a result of lead poisoning and exposure.

    The Consumer Product Safety Commission reported that there were over 155,000 children under 14 treated in an emergency department for toy-related injuries, with 5,000 of these children requiring hospitalization. Even more disturbing, an estimated 77,000 injuries and 88 deaths of children under 5 are reported annually for defective or poorly manufactured nursery products like cribs, baby seats, playpens, and strollers. Injuries to children from defective and dangerous toys and dangerous children’s products can result in serious and catastrophic injuries and death.

    Numerous children’s products have been recalled due to poor or flawed design, manufacturing and assembly defects, hazardous packaging, inadequate or missing warning labels, and lack of oversight or inspection. Products made with small parts, parts that break easily, and products made with loose buttons and buckles can pose a serious choking or suffocation hazard to children. Over half of all toy-related deaths were caused by choking. We have also seen toys manufactured with toxic chemicals like phthalates, or that have been manufactured with sharp points or edges that can cause lacerations, loss of fingers, and blindness. Electrical toys pose an electrocution and electric shock hazard when construction and wiring are defective.

    ...I want to say that the Reiff Law Firm changed my entire life with handling of my legal case.

    As a former client, I want to say that the Reiff Law Firm changed my entire life with handling of my legal case. I was in a very serious automobile accident with severe injuries to neck and back areas. I contacted the law firm and asked what to do with the medical bills and how do I get the correct representation against the individual who rear-ended my car. In short, the firm took complete control of the case contacting my insurance company and asking for all the medical bills and legal matters be sent directly to them. I was able to get treatment from my doctor without worrying about the legal stuff. Furthermore, two years later the case was settled for a substantial amount of money. My life was much better due to the firm handling of my case. My attorneys at Reiff Law Firm are absolutely the best and I have recommended to my family friends. Thanks Reiff Law Firm.

    I’m very comfortable to say there’s no better in the city.

    Before meeting with Jeffrey Reiff and Bob Szostak from the Reiff law firm I’ve consulted with a few other injury attorneys in the Philadelphia region. Difference was, these guys know their stuff! I was absolutely blown away by how compassionate and welcome this law firm makes you feel. Once signed with them I never went a single week without staying in the loop with the progress and updates these guys have on your case. Working with them for some time turned what was an injury case, into a family! From calls and meetings, to just calling in to say “hi how’s everything going” I’ve never felt like a beat was skipped. I’d recommended the Reiff law firm 100%! I’m very comfortable to say there’s no better in the city. The awards they’ve earned over the years speaks for itself! I can never thank the Reiff law firm and Bob Szostak enough for everything they’ve done, their professionalism, compassion and all of their knowledge and experience! Highly rated! Best in the city! I look forward continuing our relationship in the future. Thanks again My Reiff family!

    ...without them I would have been lost.

    I can’t say enough great things about the Attorneys at the Reiff Law Firm. They made me feel at ease when I was going through a very difficult time in my life. Never being in a situation like this I was so unsure of where to start and how to go about the process. Justin gave me options where I thought I had none and explained everything in a way that I could understand. Justin and the team helped me arrange all of the treatment and therapy that I needed, without them I would have been lost. My attorney John went to bat for me like no one else could have, his knowledge and professionalism is unmatched. If anyone is ever in need of a team of attorneys the Reiff Law Firm is my ONLY recommendation.

    THE REIFF FIRM IS AN OUTSTANDING LAW FIRM!

    I was referred to the Reiff Law Firm by a friend who had previously been a client of the firm. My friend told me that the Reiff Firm had done an incredible job handling his case and treated him like family. My friend's recommendation was spot on. I am going to miss them now that my case is over. Attorney Reiff and Attorney Toczydlowski are excellent attorneys. They really care. They got me an INCREDIBLE RESULT. Most importantly they were there for me during some extremely dark and difficult times in my life. I highly recommend the Reiff Law Firm to anyone seeking the very best legal representation for injuries they suffered in an accident.
