Parents of infants and small children tend to spare no expense when it comes to products that are meant for use by their little ones. That’s because frugality has its limits in terms of the benefits obtained with regards to these products, as placing babies in danger of harm is simply not worth any risk. When people purchase high-end baby products, most assume that spending all of that extra money not only provides the family with a product that will be durable, but also one that will be dependable and safe. Unfortunately, a recent recall of a baby product could cast some doubt on that line of thinking.
Below you will find a brief overview that relates to a recent recall of two high-end baby stroller products because of extreme dangers that could be present if they are used. You will also find information regarding the realities of taking on a corporation if you or someone you love has been injured by a defective product. Anyone who has been harmed in this manner needs to obtain the help of California defective products lawyers as soon as possible.
The Bugaboo International Baby Strollers Recall
Bugaboo International has enjoyed success as a company in recent years by selling, among other things, high-end baby strollers across North America. These strollers were much more expensive than what would be considered ‘typical’ strollers, and many parents have paid that extra money so that they could be sure that their babies would be safe.
Unfortunately for many parents across the United States and Canada, those products could actually be dangerous. The company has recently announced that it is recalling 50,000 of its Cameleon and Donkey strollers because of a tendency for each of them to have the button on the handle that disengages the seat to suddenly activate, thereby detaching the stroller handle. When this happens, the child is placed in a position of danger of both falling and choking.
These high-end strollers sold in the United States and Canada for an average price of anywhere between $1,000.00 and $1,600.00. They have been sold in retail outlets that include Buy Buy Baby, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Toys R Us. More than 46,000 of these units that have been recalled were sold in the United States and more than 4,000 others were sold in Canada.
Defective Products and Legal Realities
When someone is injured by a defective product, that person faces the prospect of taking on an enormous corporation in an attempt to recover rightful and just compensation. These corporations have vast resources at their disposal and consumers attempting to handle these situations by themselves are at a distinct disadvantage.
