Mini Blind Cord Strangulation Lawyers
National Mini Blind Injury Attorneys Help Families and Fight for Window Covering Safety
The mini blind cord attorneys at the Onder Law Firm are the nation’s premier window blind injury litigators. We have handled and won settlements more than any other mini blind attorneys. Our extensive research has resulted in the largest collection of “smoking gun” documents, proving the window covering industry has routinely chosen profits over consumer safety for decades. On the behalf of the more than 60 families whose cases we have worked on, and all the families whose child has been harmed by dangerous window coverings, we are leading advocates pushing the Consumer Products Safety Commission to issue mandatory regulations. Through litigation, research, and advocacy, our window blind cord lawyers are committed to achieving justice on behalf of American families harmed by mini blind cord strangulation.
Leading Window Blind Cord Lawyers – Our Record
Since 2003, our mini blind cord choking lawyers have handled, consulted in, and settled more than fifty cases in over 30 U.S. states. Prior to our work, families filing blind cord choking claims hired a local attorney who had no specific knowledge of the Window Covering Manufacturing Association or the industry at large. With only one such case, each of these small law firms was unable to uncover much information about the industry’s record in dealing with this subject.
When our mini blind lawyers came onto the scene, our national scope and extensive resources enabled our mini blind injury attorneys to conduct extensive research. Documents we have obtained through litigation and the Freedom of Information Act now comprise the largest library of “posion” documents, demonstrating the willful, reckless, and wanton nature of the industry’s choice to prioritize profits over the safety of young children. Mini blind injury attorney groups around the nation consult with our firm routinely to benefit from our expertise.
"The only language some window blind manufacturers and retailers seem to understand is litigation. Parents can't possibly put a price on their children's lives, but too many window blind companies have chosen to do just that". – James Onder
Window Blind Strangulation Lawyers: Industry Motivated by Profit Margins
In one civil suit handled by our mini blind strangulation injury attorneys, Ralph Vasami, the head of the Window Covering Association, admitted cored window coverings still pose a risk. When questioned, Vasami admitted, “The hazard is still present.” The industry asserts it has issued a series of voluntary standards to protect children from the risk of mini blind strangulation injuries, yet children continue to die in these tragic incidents. One our mini blind cord attorneys asked Vasami whether children continue to be exposed to miniblind injury dangers under the current voluntary standard. Vasami replied, “Young children, yes.”
Every major manufacturer of window coverings makes a cordless, safe version of their products. However, most of these companies still sell products that feature known miniblind strangulation hazards. Our window blind cord choking attorneys assert that companies continue to knowingly make unsafe window blinds because they are cheaper to manufacture. Manufacturers have testified in multiple cases handled by our mini blind cord injury attorneys that making safe blind would add a cost of $1-2 per unit. Companies are continuing to make and sell dangerous blinds in order to protect profits – and because loopholes in the standard allow them to do so. They are not going cordless because they want to protect their profit margins. The industry has made a conscious decision that it is cheaper to pay off a lawsuit than it is to save human lives. Our miniblind strangulation lawyers believe that only the threat of significant litigation or a mandatory standard will protect children from window blind cord choking accidents.
