When a parent purchases a crib for their infant, they expect the crib to be safe and sturdy; the security of their child is paramount. That is why many parents carefully research cribs prior to making a purchase. However, even if a crib may seem to be of quality craftmanship, product defects do occur, and this puts children at serious risk.
The hazard of a defective crib is very real. Crib models are recalled on a regular basis. Government agencies such as the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission may issue recalls. But sometimes crib models are not recalled timely enough or are only classified as voluntary recalls. When this happens, children are seriously injured or even killed due to their defective crib.

If you own what is known as a “drop side” crib, your child is at greater risk. In fact, in December 2010, the Consumer Product Safety Commission issued a ban on the sale of these types of cribs in the U.S. This was done due to the number of injuries and deaths reported while children were in drop side cribs. The rails on these cribs may not be secure, putting at a child in serious jeopardy.

Children Face Many Risks
In addition to cribs, children may be injured by a variety of defective products including highchairs, toys, strollers, and bottles, among other products. If a child has been seriously injured in a crib or as the result of another defective product, parents should take action to get justice from the wrongdoers.
Crib manufacturers can be held accountable for the harm they cause to a child as the result of defect. The last thing anyone wants is another child to be seriously injured or worse because a manufacturer negligently and irresponsibly sold a defective product.
