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?

Consider the Statute of Limitations
Your infant died due to the hazardous baby sleeper. You have the right to sue and receive compensation. However, are you aware that you could lose the right to sue and receive compensation if you fail to take action within an appropriate length of time? All claims, including wrongful death claims are subject to very strict timelines – called statutes of limitations. The statute of limitations establishes the time that claimants have to pursue their claims. If claimants do not file their claims within the time allowed by the statute of limitations, they will unfortunately lose the right to take action.
What specific timeline applies to your wrongful death claim? In California, wrongful death clams are generally subject to a two-year statute of limitations. In other words, you will have two years to file your claim and begin the legal process. Are there any exceptions to the two-year deadline for wrongful death claims? Some exceptions could apply and pause or extend the time that you have to sue. However, these exceptions are case-specific; therefore, you should seek legal assistance with the experts at Downtown L.A. Law Group
as soon as possible.
