Window Cord Injuries

Window Cord Injury Lawyers in Victoria

Advancing Your Right to Recover Damages from Defective Products Manufacturers

If you have window coverings that are drawn by pulling a cord or tassel, it can present a potentially life-threatening risk to toddlers and infants. According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), approximately 50 children sustained fatal injuries as a direct result of window cords. The CPSC estimates that 93% of window cord related deaths comprise of children who are three years old and under.

Dangers Associated with Window Cords

Are manufacturers really responsible for window cord injuries? Under products liability law, the manufacturer of defectively designed products can be held liable for injuries that result from the use of such a product. If the defective design of a product presents an unreasonable risk of danger to the consumer public, then the manufacturer may be liable for the resulting injuries, including death.

The risks that window cords present to toddlers and infants are undisputed. Moreover, an estimated 50% of window cord strangulation deaths go unreported, according to the Journal of the American Medical Association and CPSC.

The CPSC has released the following official safety guidelines when it comes using window coverings that involve cords:

  • Keep cribs, beds, furniture, and toys away from windows with window cords;
  • Ensure tasseled pull cords are as short as possible;
  • Keep all pull cords out of reach of young children;
  • Eliminate dangling cords.
