Nap Nanny Baby Recliners Pegged As Dangerous Product, Thousands Recalled
-- A massive product recall could affect your family. Do you have a working knowledge of California product liability law? --
January 08, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- In late December, four national retailers agreed to recall more than 150,000 Nap Nanny baby recliners in light of reports that the items had caused at least five infant deaths. Designed to cradle young children while they slept, the foam recliners apparently did not feature an effective restraint system, and it was discovered that infants could easy fall over the side.
On December 27, the Consumer Product Safety Commission announced their finding that Nap Nanny seats, which were sold between 2009 and 2012, pose a "substantial risk of injury and death to infants." The CPSC said that the Nap Nanny contains defects in its design, warnings and instructions, and that parents and caregivers should stop using the product immediately. The CPSC also advised consumers seeking more information about the recall to review the return policies of the retailers participating in the recall -- Amazon.com, Buy Buy Baby, Diapers.com and Toys R Us/Babies R Us.
Overview of California product liability law
It is one thing to have to return a product for a refund. But, if a dangerous product has already injured you or a loved one, it is far too late for such a simple remedy.
There are many types of product defects that can affect consumer safety, including design defects, manufacturing defects and defective safety warning labels and instructions. Any time one of these defects causes injury or death, the maker or marketer of the product can be held financially responsible for resulting harm in a products liability suit.
Under California product liability law, there is generally no need to show that a company was negligent -- or in other words, that they made some kind of mistake -- in a products liability suit. What is critically important is to prove is that the product was defective, and that the product was in fact the cause of the injury. The injured party may also have to dispute claims by the manufacturer that his or her own negligence contributed to the injury in order to secure full compensation.
If you have been injured by a faulty product, or if a family member has been killed, do not delay; there is a time limit for filing product liability claims, and what's more, the ongoing financial solvency of companies that produce defective products is not guaranteed.
