Child Injury Attorney Ready to Battle Manufacturers of Dangerous Toys
Parents and loved ones trust that the toys they purchase and give to their children will be well designed, tested and produced to ensure the greatest degree of safety as their children play.

At Clark, Perdue & List Co, LPA, we are committed to zealously advocating on behalf of children who have been hurt while playing with toys. Working with design experts and professionals in the field, we pinpoint mistakes made by the toy manufacturers and where negligence occurred. Not only do our efforts deliver compensation to the child and his or her family, they help to ensure that accidents like this will not happen in the future injuring even more children.

Tragically, at least 181,500 children required hospital emergency room treatment for toy-related injuries in 2010. Most injuries involved choking, lacerations and contusions. Other serious injuries resulted from swallowing small pieces, strangulation from strings, flammable products, unsafe levels of lead and cadmium, overheating batteries and exploding gasoline-powered toys. In 2010, 17 children died, mostly from choking.
Millions of toys are recalled each year. Toy manufacturers, distributors and retailers have a legal responsibility to ensure that they do not market dangerous toys. Consumers have a right to expect that the toys given to their children are safe. Despite an increased emphasis on toy safety by the government, many dangerous toys continue to be found on retailers’ toy shelves.
