Mini Blind Attorneys Pursue New CPSC Rule
Over the course of the past four decades, hundreds of children have been harmed by hazardous window coverings. Meaningful change, in the way of mandatory industry safety regulations, has been very slow in coming. Fully aware of the risk their products pose to America’s most vulnerable residents, the window covering industry has failed to eliminate cords from window covering products such as miniblinds, shades, and drapes. In response, these miniblind attorneys have launched a concerted effort to mandate the elimination of dangerous window coverings through a petition to the Consumer Products Safety Commission.
Monday, November 21, 2016 - The Petition for Rulemaking was submitted in 2014 calling for the establishment of mandatory standards that would entirely remove dangerous miniblinds from American stores. Signed by a group of concerned parents including parents of children killed in mini blind accident as well as consumer rights groups and mini blind attorneys, the Petition calls for federal regulators to take further steps to make decisive change. To date, the Petition has neither been granted nor denied.
When this mini blind attorney team took on its first such case, most families looking for window blind strangulation representation turned to a local law firm. While many of these firms were skilled and had the best intentions, they lacked knowledge of the industry dynamics that have made passing blind safety regulations so difficult. Our mini blind attorney team, feeling deep compassion for the families whose children had been harmed or killed by cord strangulation, sought to become engaged on a broad level.
Over time, these mini blind attorneys became recognized as the national leader in window cord strangulation cases. Through their extensive work with families whose child has been harmed or killed by cord strangulation, these miniblind attorneys have become deeply committed to the cause of eliminating the threat entirely. Out of this motivation came their work on the 2014 Petition. At this time, they have the largest collection of incriminating industry documents anywhere in America and are consulted by law firms around the country for help in representing mini blind cases.
