Michigan Choking Hazard Lawyers

Laws and regulations bar toymakers from manufacturing toys with small enough parts for children to choke on unless there is a clear label on the packaging that warns of the choking hazard. Nevertheless, some dangerous toys slip through the cracks and pose significant dangers for the children who play with them. It is the manufacturer’s responsibility to ensure their toys do not pose a choking hazard, and when they fail to do so the consequences can be catastrophic.

If your child has been harmed by a dangerous toy, the Michigan choking hazard lawyers of Ravid & Associates, P.C., can help you to hold the manufacturer accountable for their oversight. Contact us at (866) 644-6587 today to discuss your potential case with a compassionate and committed attorney.

Signs of Choking

When a person is choking there is often little time to save them. It is important for parents to remain vigilant when their children are playing with toys with small components or which might be broken into smaller pieces that could become lodged in the airway. Parents must act quickly if they detect any signs of choking, such as:

  • Violent coughing
  • Inability to speak
  • Skin going blue
  • Unconsciousness

When the brain and heart are deprived of oxygen, there is a chance that they will suffer irreparable damage, possibly leaving a family to cope with lifelong medical expenses and other considerations.
