How are Baby Sleepers Leading to Infant Deaths?Baby sleepers have been associated with infant fatalities for many years. Unfortunately, the issue has only been addressed until now – with the recall of multiple brands of baby sleepers. How are these sleepers leading to the death of innocent babies? According to the recalls issued by both Fisher-Price and Kid II, infants have died after rolling onto their stomach (from their back). This causes the infants to suffocate, dying in just a few minutes. As parents, we want to believe that all baby products are safe for our children. We want to be able to set our infants down on their baby sleepers for a nap knowing that they will be safe.
Do You Have the Right to Sue?Your baby’s death was directly caused by the baby sleeper; do you have the right to sue? Only very specific parties have the right to sue and pursue action after the wrongful death of a victim. As the parent of the deceased victim, you have the right to pursue a wrongful death claim. If you would like to learn more about your right to pursue a claim, do not hesitate to contact our law firm as soon as possible. Our experts will provide you with the guidance that you need to pursue a wrongful death claim.
Establishing the Grounds to File a Wrongful Death ClaimLike many other types of claims, wrongful death claims are based on negligence. Negligence consists of four elements: duty of care, breach of duty, cause, and harm. You must be able to prove that a party (or entity) owed your child a duty of care that was breached. You must be able to prove that the breach of duty caused the death of your child. If you would like to learn more about the importance of establishing negligence in wrongful death claims, do not hesitate to contact our law firm at your earliest convenience.
