Daspit Law Firm of Beaumont is helping to lead the fight against window blind manufacturers who knowingly sell dangerous corded window blind systems that put young children in serious danger. Since 1973, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has recorded about 770 cases of fatal strangulation suffered by children who have become caught in window blind cords. Yet product makers have been slow to make any changes.
Litigation is often the only way to make companies listen, and it can also prompt legislative changes. When you let our Beaumont wrongful death attorneys handle your window blind cord strangulation lawsuit, we will be fighting for justice for your child and improvements to window blind cord safety regulations across the country.
We may also be able to collect for you a fair amount of compensation to provide for:
The CPSC has been following stories of window blind cord strangulation for decades. Across all of those years, there have only been two wide-reaching window blind cord recalls. Other than those attempts to improve window blind cord safety, not much has been done.
What is worse, it is believed that some product manufacturers have willingly ignored product danger warnings. Some have been accused of issuing recalls that they knew would not be able to actually correct the window blind cord strangulation risk. It is possible some companies are trying to avoid admitting their products are dangerous at every turn in order to not place liability on themselves, and to save money that would be lost in a mandatory, inventory-wide recall.
The Parents for Window Blind Safety (PFWBS) organization recently announced that more retailers would begin selling cordless window blind systems and stop selling corded systems. This advancement in safety is encouraging, but it is only the beginning. Let Daspit Law Firm and our Beaumont injury attorneys be your voice if you have lost a child due to window blind cord strangulation. We can represent you from start to finish in your claim, demanding justice from the product manufacturer that made and sold the hazardous window covering.
