Cedar Rapids Dangerous Toys Lawyers
There are few events that bring more excitement and light to a child’s eyes than receiving a new toy. Whether for a birthday, holiday, or just as a surprise reward for good behavior, the colorful wrapping and companion or entertainment that awaits inside hold the promise of hours of future joys. But for too many children and families, what was intended to provide happiness quickly turns into tragedy because of a defectively designed or manufactured product. In the worst case scenario, a child may even be killed by what had been a seemingly harmless toy.
