Miniblind Lawsuits for Justice
These product liability lawyers specialize in representing parents and families in miniblind lawsuits. From the time this law firm became involved in its first mini blind lawsuit, they have become deeply committed to the cause of eliminating mini blind threats from American homes. Their role in this particular type of litigation has grown and evolved over the years.
Friday, November 4, 2016 - Fueled by great empathy for their clients who have suffered significant losses as a result of corporate negligence and greed, our attorneys handling mini blind lawsuits take on complex cases against major multinational entities. American consumers and families deserve to have access to safe products, pharmaceutical drugs and medical devices. Window blind strangulation is one of the most tragic, terrifying, and exasperating injustices American consumers face.
The window covering industry has detailed knowledge of the threat of mini blind cords. Research conducted in the 1980s revealed the bulk of the threats facing young children from window blinds. Incident reports compiled over the decades show that the number of incidents have not decreased as the years have passed, for two reasons: first, that regulations are voluntary rather than mandatory and some companies forgo them; and second, that the regulations in place, even when followed to a tee, are inadequate for preventing all strangulation injuries. Dangerous blinds are cheaper to make than safe blinds, and strangulation risks will only be removed if American consumers demand it.
These attorneys were among several groups that filed a Petition to the CPSC in 2014, demanding that mandatory standards be set in regards to mini blind safety. While that particular action looks hopeful, the petition has not yet been approved.
Mini blind injury lawsuit claims serve to exert pressure against miniblind manufacturers that are still producing hazardous products. The more litigation that piles up against them, the more motivated these corporations will be to make decisive changes to eliminate known risks. Filing a miniblind injury lawsuit is the best means for individuals and families to demand change. Filing a claim can also achieve meaningful compensation for medical expenses, suffer, lost income, and loss.
The injustice of this particular consumer threat gives our firm great frustration and pain. Eliminating the threat of window cord strangulation would be relatively simple, yet the industry is unmotivated to make a change. Meanwhile, children continue to sustain serious and deadly injuries from dangerous blinds. We are dedicated to filing mini blind injury lawsuits on behalf of families whose child has been harmed, and on behalf of all American families with young children, in order to eliminate this threat completely.
