When you buy a toy for your kid, we know you ensure that it is safe for their age. Like most parents, you probably read the labels thoroughly, making sure to note the possible hazards. However, there are times when a product hits the market that is not safe and can cause serious harm to our children.
We hear about the recalls on toys every now and again on the news, but that does not give us a complete picture of the problem. Today, we want to turn to a report from the Consumer Product Safety Commission so we can better protect ourselves and our families.
At the Simpson Law Group, we want to help you if you or someone you love has been harmed by a faulty product. When you need a San Diego product liability attorney, you can count on us to secure the compensation you deserve.
