Daspit Law Firm and our injury attorneys in West Texas are working hard to ensure all window coverings are safe for infants and young children by bringing lawsuits against negligent window blind manufacturers. Based on Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) data going back to 1973, more than 760 children have lost their lives to window blind cord strangulation across the country. Despite this alarmingly high number of child fatalities, there has been little progress made by product manufacturers to make cords safer.

By allowing our West Texas wrongful death lawyers represent you and manage your window blind cord strangulation lawsuit, you allow a winning team of professionals to take up the fight on your behalf.

Only two major window blind cord recalls have been conducted in the decades tracked by the CPSC. While these recalls may have gotten two dangerous window blind products under control and off the market, the overall impact has been minimal.
Based on some CPSC information, it appears that some window blind manufacturers have willingly ignored the warning signs about their products. If they were to admit to product dangers and conduct more recalls, then they would also feasibly admit to liability in window blind cord strangulation cases. Instead, they try to stay quiet about the entire situation, keep their heads low, and avoid liability.
The Parents for Window Blind Safety (PFWBS) organization has made some strides in window blind safety regulations. On their official website, they recently announced that more retailers would stop selling corded window covering systems and replace them only with cordless systems. While this is a tremendous step in the right direction, we have further to go.
