clothing can result in strangulation

It’s hard to imagine, but defective clothing can result in serious injuries, and even possible death to children. Most defective garments cases are connected to one of two problems, either the clothes was manufactured in a way that can cause the injury, or it’s made of material that can catch fire and burn.

There are lots of government and nongovernment child safety groups that are aware of dangers associated with defective clothing. There are many injuries each year due to defective clothing. Manufacturers can be held liable for damages caused by defective children’s clothing.

Under government acts, compulsory standards have been established for the flammability of clothing, plastic film used in clothing, carpets, rugs, children’s sleepwear, and more. In 2004, there were 129 wrongful death fatalities from clothing fires. Additionally, almost 4000 non-fatal injuries were treated in hospital emergency rooms from 2003-2005. 25% were serious enough to require hospital admission. It is virtually impossible for each piece of clothing in the USA to be scrutinized, even though there are many cases of clothing being recalled by the government.

Another significant issue is that clothing can result in strangulation. Many kids like to wear hooded sweatshirts. Recently a child was strangled to death when the his hoodie got caught on top of a playground slide. Since 1985 there have been 17 kid deaths and 42 non serious injuries. Recent US clothing standards prohibit the use of drawstrings in children’s clothing. Many foreign clothing manufacturers continue to make and import garments with hazardous drawstrings in sweatshirts and pants even though they are in danger of facing civil penalties. For example, 300000 units were manufactured by Hill Sportswear Inc and remembered. Many retail outlets have filed to report sales of these products. Following the omission was discovered, they had been made to pay a severe fine.

If you feel a clothing maker harmed either you, or your kid, then we encourage you to talk to us. Our team of lawyers can help you get justice and make sure that the manufacturer is held accountable. When suing domestic USA manufacturers, it is easier to get compensation. Because the manufacturer is in the USA it’s possible to sue them in a local court, and go after the assets of the business. If the owners of the company acted fraudulent and knew about the defect, then it is possible to pursue civil charges against the owner of the company also.

If you a feel a foreign clothing manufacturer is responsible for the damages caused to you, then it’s likely to take care of them and other folks who sold their products. In accordance with US law, it is possible to go after everybody in the supply chain, that means people who were selling the clothes, such as retailers, in addition to the manufacturers themselves. It’s possible to hire a lawyer globally who can sue the manufacturer in their own country. You might have grounds to file a lawsuit against the manufacturer, wholesaler, distributor, and much more, depending on the type of product in question. Product liability claims can also be brought for a manufacturer’s failure to warn of possible risks, in addition to failing to correctly manufacturer the product. Sometimes, product liability lawsuits can be filed alone, or as part of a class action if the merchandise injured a high number of people. Filing a joint class action can be appropriate when the damages each plaintiff obtained would be nominal.

Any number of people could be held liable for a defective product injury. By way of example, an injured consumer can get compensation from one or more responsible parties. By way of instance, the clothing manufacturer can be held liable, the merchant who sold the thing could be held liable, as well as the wholesaler who acted as a middleman between the manufacturer and retailer.
