The Consumer Product Safety Commission, Health Canada and Step2 Company LLC in Ohio just recently recalled over 21,000 Basic Rhythms Drums (made in China) due to the choking hazard they posed to the children using them. Evidently, the plastic clips that attach the drumsticks to the drum break easily, and the small pieces present a choking hazard for young children. The drums were to be used just for fun for preschool age kids.
Most of these drums were sold at places like Toys “R” Us and Burlington Coat Factory and other retailers from August 2009 to March 2009. Any consumers that still have these drums in their home are being urged to take the drums away from their children. They may call the Step2 company for a free toy replacement.
If your child has been involved in a choking incident and suffered serious harm, you may want to speak to a product liability attorney about filing a personal injury lawsuit on behalf of your child..
If your case looks like it might take a long time to resolve, you might also want to ask questions about accessing a service known as lawsuit funding. This valuable service provides a lawsuit cash advance, to cash strapped litigants, and is often available within 24-48 hours. It costs nothing to apply for litigation funding, you don’t need to be employed nor are there any credit checks or monthly payments. All you need to qualify for legal finance services is an ongoing lawsuit handled by an experienced attorney. And, the money is yours to keep if you lose your case.
If you do qualify and receive r legal funding, you can pay mortgage or car payments or unexpected, accident related, medical expenses. Once the financial pressure has been eliminated, you have precious time and money to allow your attorney to obtain an equitable settlement or verdict.
