Window Cord Injury Lawyers in Corpus Christi

Advocating for Your Right to Attain Justice for Your Injuries

When a business manufactures a dangerously defective product, they may be liable for injuries that result from such a product’s use. Liability extends to such manufacturers if they introduce a defectively designed product that presents an unreasonable risk of harm to the consumer public. A product that is considered to pose an unreasonable risk of harm to the public could be evidenced by the fact that there was a safer alternative that was commercially reasonable to manufacture.

The dangers associated with window coverings with pull cords are not in dispute. Between 2012 and 2017, roughly 50 children – ages 3 and under – we killed as a direct result of becoming entangled among window pull cords. Moreover, studies conducted by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission strongly suggest that half of all window-cord strangulation deaths have not been reported. Furthermore, a pull cord apparatus is not the only way to manufacturer retractable window covers. Many window blinds and curtains can be retracted using safer methods.

If your small child has been injured as a direct result of having dangerous window cords, you might be entitled to a legal remedy. To get a better understanding of your legal rights, you should contact The Daspit Law Firm for more information.

The Undeniable Risks of Window Cords

The life-threatening dangerous posed by window cords is well known among governmental agencies such as the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), and private groups, such as the American Medical Association. Significantly, federal law directs the Secretary of Defense to remove window coverings with accessible cords from military housing units occupied by families with children under the age of 9. Unfortunately, not all states have a legal apparatus to ensure that window cords are not endangering children.

According to the CPSC, the following steps should be taken for dwellings that use accessible cords for window coverings:

  • Move all cribs, beds, furniture, and toys away from window coverings with accessible cords;
  • Make sure tasseled pull cords are as short as possible;
  • Keep children out of reach of all window cords by eliminating dangling cords;
  • Check that cord stops are properly installed and adjusted to limit the movement of inner lift cords;
  • Permanently anchor continuous-loop cords to the floor.
