Twelve children have their fingers severed by a stroller, including one in New York. Personal injury attorneys like David Perecman understand frustration of the families.
New York, NY (PRWEB) March 5, 2010 -- The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has announced a recall of over one million stroller manufactured by Maclaren. However, as reported by the New York Post , this was too late for one Brooklyn toddler, whose finger was severed by a hinge joint. According to court papers and New York personal injury attorneys, this incident occurred more than five years before the British company issued the global recall.
Over the past five years, at least 15 serious injuries were reported. Twelve of these were fingertip amputations such as the one that happened to Brooklyn, New York resident Shannon Windram.
“Five years of knowing about the problem, but doing nothing is severely questionable. Upon learning of a product that is a substantial hazard or poses a potential hazard to people, companies are required by federal law to report the problem to the CPSC immediately," said David Perecman, a New York product liability attorney. If your child is injured by a defective product in New York, families should contact a top New York personal injury attorney immediately.
