Fisher-Price Rock ‘n Play Sleeper Lawsuit Lawyer
Fisher-Price has recalled almost five million Rock ’n Play Sleepers after the product was linked with dozens of infant deaths. A stark warning was issued by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) to stop using the sleeper once a child reaches 3 months of age or when the child is able to roll over due to fatalities related to infants rolling over while unrestrained.
Deaths have been reported dating back to 2009; however, Fisher-Price’s owner, Mattel, continues to maintain that the Rock ’n Play Sleeper is safe when used correctly. Infant fatalities linked to the device are alleged to have resulted from babies rolling over from their backs to their stomachs. The CPSC is recommending that parents stop using the product due to the risk of asphyxiation. The risk of suffocation occurs when an infant rolls over from their back to their stomach.
Fatal Infant Injury Due to Rock ‘n Play Sleeper Defect
Defective Fisher-Price Rock ’n Play Sleepers may be linked to infant injuries and fatalities. If your child has suffered an injury or died while placed in a Fisher-Price Rock ’n Play Sleeper, Ligori & Ligori Attorneys at Law may be able to represent you. Fisher-Price has been aware of the alleged risks associated with this product since 2009 and is claiming that a large number of the documented fatalities were due to medical conditions or improper use of the product.
As a parent, you have the right to pursue a case against the manufacturers of a defective product. Fisher-Price claims that the Rock ’n Play Sleeper is safe for all-night sleep – a claim that is contested by some medical experts. The American Academy of Pediatrics does not advocate the use of products that require restraints for unsupervised sleep.
