Passionately Pursuing Justice for the Injured

Window Blind Cord Strangulation

Houston Wrongful Death & Product Liability Lawyers

Most homes in America have a hidden danger: window blind cords. According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), nearly 800 children have lost their lives due to strangulation caused by a loose window blind cord since the agency started tracking such wrongful deaths in 1973. Two recall programs have been implemented throughout the decades, but the dangers of window blind cord strangulation have not diminished. It is even noted in CPSC reports that some window blind manufacturers knew of the strangulation hazards but intentionally did little to make corrections.

Daspit Law Firm Fights to Stop Window Blind Cord Strangulation

Unfortunately, it looks like the only way to make window blind manufacturers take action and create safer products is to file product liability lawsuits against them. Through litigation, our Houston attorneys of Daspit Law Firm hope to change legislation. By holding product manufacturers accountable and bringing more attention to this ongoing danger, it may be possible to push for legislation to require safer product standards.

Safety measures that might be regulated through new legislation could include:

  • Push-button window blind systems
  • Crank systems to replace loose cord systems
  • Blinds controlled remotely without a cord

Any of the aforementioned options could help prevent window blind cord strangulation. Yet, window covering manufacturers have made little to no effort to implement any of these fixes and alternatives. The continued refusal to look for safer alternatives can be seen as professional negligence that puts kids all around the country in serious danger each day.

Join Us in the Ongoing Campaign to Make Window Cords Safe

Window blind covering manufacturers may try to pass off a child’s death as a “freak accident” but we know better. There has long been a history of reports stating the risks of window blind cord strangulation, and product makers have essentially ignored it. Only recently did cordless blind start to show up as a staple in major retailers thanks to the efforts of Parents for Window Blind Safety (PFWBS).

If your child was strangled by a window blind cord, then please consider joining Daspit Law Firm and our Houston window cord strangulation lawsuit attorneys in the fight to make things right. Together, we can pursue justice for your child and for all other children around the country.
