One major factor manufacturers and producers must take into account when introducing a product is the possibility that small children or others who are devoid of experience will get their hands on the product. This is especially true with basic household items that kids have access too all day. If a product is unsafe in terms of its design or if there is not an adequate warning, serious injury or death may result. In such a situation, it may be wise to contact an expert products liability attorney at 617-787-3700.
In Salt Lake City, Utah, a 3-year girl died back in 2016 when she was playing with some window blinds, became trapped, and eventually suffocated. Now, her family is bringing suit on her behalf, claiming inadequate warnings, a dangerously long chord, and a general lack of measures against potential strangulation. The Mahe family is seeking damages for funeral expenses, pain and suffering, medical bills, and any punitive damages allowed under Utah law. The family is represented in this case by attorney Alan W. Mortensen of Dewsnup, King & Olson of Salt Lake City, Utah.
