The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has record nearly 800 child and infant deaths since 1973 caused by window blind cord strangulation accidents. At this rate, one child every three weeks loses their life to a poorly designed window blind cord. Many, many more are seriously injured.
At Dapsit Law Firm, we know that enough is enough. Product manufacturers need to take responsibility for their dangerous products, make design changes, and provide compensation to families who have lost a child. Our Austin product liability lawyers are hearing from parents throughout the city and beyond who have a lawsuit to bring forth. If you think you do, too, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Two recalls have been filed to correct dangerous window blind cord product designs, but they have not been effective. Indeed, there is reason to believe that some window covering manufacturers have intentionally done the absolute minimum to make their products “safer.” In order to tip the scales in favor of consumers and children across the nation, we need to take legal action through lawsuits in pursuit of damages. Successful lawsuits catch the attention of both product makers and legislators, who can control the industry with regulations.
In your window blind cord strangulation claim, you may be able to pursue:
The Parents for Window Blind Safety (PFWBS) organization has long been hard at work to bring about safety improvements to window blind designs. They recently announced that more retailers will sell only cordless blinds to prevent window blind cord strangulation incidents. This is only the beginning, though. We all need to keep campaigning and fighting for better regulations and products.
