Who is most at risk for death or injury in a Rock ‘n Play?
While Fisher-Price initially posed the Rock ‘n Play sleeper problem as only affecting babies over the age of three months who were not strapped into the seat’s restraints, we now know that much younger babies have also suffered injury and death from the Rock ‘n Play. The American Academy of Pediatrics calls the device “deadly”, noting its very design defies basic sleep safety recommendations. Any use of the Rock ‘n Play puts babies at risk for positional asphyxiation and smothering.
We’re not the type of people who sue; do we really need to file a lawsuit?
If a member of your family suffered a serious injury or health problem as a result of a defective product or dangerous drug, long-term, or even lifelong, medical care may be required. This could be incredibly expensive and since medical costs are continually rising may be largely unknown at the time of settlement or trial. If a member of your family died due to a defective product or dangerous drug, no amount of money can undo that wrong. It is our fervent hope that every defective products, drug or other medication lawsuit we file can serve to make the manufacturer take note of the loss and pain its product has caused. When that fails to make a company take action in the form of a product recall, greater warnings about its use and ultimately making safer products, we rely on their profit motivation to make them do the right thing. Unfortunately, in all too many cases it is only the fear of lawsuits and large settlements and verdicts that makes a company become a better corporate citizen.
Aren’t most products liability lawsuits just class action lawsuits where the plaintiff receives very little money?
No, Rock ‘n Play injury lawsuits will not be a class action. Instead, national Rock ‘n Play lawsuit claims are likely to be consolidated as MDL, or Multi-district litigation, where each plaintiff receives a settlement based upon the individual injuries and damages incurred by each plaintiff, and our attorneys have reason to believe these settlements could be significant. Multi-district litigation allows courts to process similar cases efficiently, while preserving the individual details of each case.
