Despite the fact that hundreds of children have been killed and thousands injured by corded window blinds over the last few decades alone, these hazardous products have remained in commercial circulation. While the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has issued updated standards and requirements for window blind companies through the years, this industry has been slow to make meaningful changes. To add insult to injury, not only are many of the CPSC’s standards voluntary, but window blind companies have found loopholes.

If you are one of many aggrieved families who have seen your beloved child injured or killed due to a window blind cord strangulation incident, do not hesitate to reach out to the attorneys at OnderLaw. Our firm has been at the forefront of advocating for and effecting change in the window blind industry for decades in partnership with families just like yours. We will work tirelessly to hold those responsible for your child’s harm legally accountable and recover maximum compensation for window blind cord strangulation.

Proving Liability in a Window Blind Cord Strangulation Lawsuit

Even though recent changes have effectively banned stock corded window blinds or required that cords in these products be inaccessible, countless of these potentially dangerous products remain in households across the nation. The CPSC’s rules also fail to sufficiently address the various cords found in custom window coverings. Not only cord loops but tilt cords, cord connectors, and cord joiners are all mechanisms that have been linked to far too many instances of child injuries and fatalities.

When any company designs, manufactures, or sells a defective or dangerous product, and that product injures or kills someone, it can be held legally responsible for financial damages. Members of the window blind industry are no exception. Given the known hazards that corded window blinds pose, these entities can and should be held legally culpable for compensation when a child is injured or killed as a result of their failure to take action to make their products safer.

The window blind industry has scores of legal teams and insurance companies on their side working to minimize or crush claims just like yours. Our skilled lawyers at OnderLaw have successfully pursued cases against designers, retailers, distributors, manufacturers, suppliers, and other parties involved in the distribution chain in these cases and won millions of dollars in recovery for our clients.

We have the resources necessary to collect extensive documentation and testimony from experts across the nation, while constructing vital supporting evidence through sources like 3-D computer models to show juries the deadly consequences of these products.
