How To Keep Your Baby Safe

A parent’s main concern is and always should be keeping their baby safe. It is frightening to discover that an item purchased for your baby turns out to be a defective or dangerous product that has been recalled.

The last way anyone wants to find out about a product recall is because of an accident — so staying informed and up-to-date on recalls is very important for parents.

The first way to stay informed is to immediately send in the warranty and product information card that is included in the package of all new items you purchase. If the card is filled out and the product is recalled, you will immediately be contacted by the manufacturer. If you do not fill out this information, there is no way for the manufacturer to know that you own the item. The second way to make sure you stay current with baby product recalls is by checking recall notices and online information.

Did you know that most stores that sell baby supplies post product recalls on their websites?

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is a government agency that lists product recalls. On the USCPSC website you may search product recalls as well as report unsafe products.

If your child has been injured by a product immediately contact a Fort Lauderdale personal injury attorney. Claims have to be filed in a very specific manner and filing them on your own may result in a dropped claim. Your attorney will make sure everything is filed properly. There are also legal time restraints as to how long you have before filing a claim, so don’t wait. Take immediate action.

It is crucial that you not only protect your legal rights, but, protect the rights and health of your child. Don’t waste time. Knowing and responding to a product recall can save the life of your child or another child. Safety first.
