Fisher-Price Rock 'n Play Sleeper Lawsuits
If you or a loved one has suffered a loss due to a Fisher-Price Rock 'n Play Sleeper, your family deserves justice. Although nothing can remedy this tragedy, an experienced products liability attorney may be able to help you get closure, give your family the financial support it needs to move forward and hold Fisher-Price accountable for its actions. Requiring Fisher-Price to be legally responsible for this defective product can help protect other children from harm.
Recalls Aren’t Justice for Suffering Families
Fisher-Price recently recalled all of its 4.7 million Rock ’n Play sleepers after a group of pediatricians urged its parent company, Mattel, to stop selling the product after reports linking it to multiple infant deaths (read CPSC Recall Notice). In most cases, the children suffocated after rolling over in the sleeper from their back to their stomach or side while unrestrained. The voluntary move by Fisher-Price was a reversal for the company, which previously issued a statement that it stood by the safety of this product even in the face of this contrary evidence.
Although Fisher-Price is no longer selling this dangerous product, this belated recall does not provide justice to a family who lost their child. Companies that make products meant for infants must hold themselves to a higher safety standard and address safety concerns with an immediate recall, instead of merely a simple warning. Their delay in publicizing the danger of this product has put countless vulnerable lives at risk. Requiring Fisher-Price to be legally responsible for this defective product can help prevent these tragedies in the future.
If you or a loved one has suffered a loss due to a Fisher-Price Rock 'n Play Sleeper, you deserve to be heard by Mattel concerning its defective product and you may be entitled to substantial compensation without ever going to court.
