“Nap Nanny” Deaths Grounds for Lawsuit
Date:1/5/2013

(PRWEB) January 05, 2013

Five infants have now died in what has become an ongoing series of product recalls. Nap Nanny, a series of baby recliners designed to hold infants during naptime, has reportedly led to repeated injuries, product failures and child fatalities state CBS Local. A voluntary recall of the recliners has been been issues by the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), but attorney Gary Iscoe says this won't be enough to address the problems the product has caused.

The recall is the second in two years. An earlier generation of Nap Nannies was recalled in 2010 by the manufacturer, Baby Matters LLC, after an infant died. Changes in the design, instructions and parental warnings allowed the company to continue selling Nap Nannies. Since then the CPSC has received 70 new reports of children nearly falling out of the recliners, and the reported death count has risen to five reported CBS.

“Recalling these products is long overdue,” said Iscoe, an injury attorney who frequently sees cases involving unsafe products. “But the recall doesn't help address the deaths and injuries that already occurred.”

Iscoe stressed that young children are particularly fragile. “Often, the full extent of an injury is not immediately apparent with a toddler or baby. If I saw my child hanging out of one of these baby seats I would want to talk to both a doctor and a lawyer.”

The families affected by the Nap Nannies are likely to sue Baby Matters, Iscoe believes. “I hope every family who filed a complaint steps forward. Talk to a lawyer and find out what your options are. When a company puts children in danger, they deserve to pay.”

The new recall is a voluntary action on the part of four retailers, Toys R Us/Babies R Us, Amazon.com, Buy Baby Buy and Diapers.com. The retailers are participating in the recall even though Baby Matters is either unwilling or unable to do so.
