Riding toys are particularly dangerous | Bart Durham Injury Law

Riding toys are particularly dangerous

As a parent, you do whatever it takes to keep your children safe. This means checking the toys you buy with the idea of keeping them away from any that could cause harm.

Unfortunately, even with the best intentions, it's possible that your child could use a defective or dangerous toy. Subsequently, he or she could be part of an accident that leads to a serious injury.

There are many types of toys that can cause an accident, with riding toys at the top of the list.

Foot-powered scooters, for example, are extremely dangerous. These can lead to a variety of injuries, including but not limited to falls and crashes with other objects and/or people.

There is no way of knowing what will happen as the result of a scooter accident, but common injuries include concussions, deep lacerations and broken bones.

Parents can protect against injury in a number of ways, such as by requiring children to wear safety equipment any time they're riding the scooter. Along with this, it's important to regularly check for recalls, as a defective vehicle is even more dangerous than one that is considered safe.

If any type of toy injures your child, don't hesitate to take him or her to a local emergency room for treatment. It's important to understand his or her injuries and to receive immediate treatment with the idea of avoiding additional trouble.

From there, learn more about the cause of the accident. This will give you a clear idea of what went wrong, which could point you to focus more time on your legal rights.
