Infant Loungers Suffocation Hazard

When you purchase a product intended to be used by your baby, you expect to receive top-quality goods that would never place your child in harm’s way. Unfortunately, many parents choose to purchase an infant lounger for their child without realizing the potential hazard they can cause.

While the infant loungers look like the ideal product for parents to purchase for their children, recent infant death reports suggest otherwise. Since these reports were made public, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has been warning the American public to immediately stop all use of the infant loungers manufactured by Leachco due to health and safety concerns after two infants suffocated to death while using their Podster lounger.

The CPSC has recommended for the last couple of decades that the only position that babies should sleep in is on their backs on a firm, flat surface. The issue with the infant loungers is that they do not allow babies to lay flat; instead, placing them in an inclined or upright position. Infant babies do not have strong neck and arms muscles to turn themselves over in the event that they are stuck against the lounger surface and are unable to breathe.

The loss or injury of an infant child due to the negligence of a product manufacturer is something no parent should ever have to experience. Our product litigation attorneys are dedicated to assisting victims, taking the time to hold the organizations accountable for their negligent actions and obtaining compensation for their suffering.

  • Which Infant Loungers Are Dangerous for Use?

    The U.S. CPSC has advised that the following infant loungers manufactured by Leachco, Inc. of Ada, Oklahoma, should not be used:

    • Podster
    • Podster Plush
    • Bummzie
    • Podster Playtime

    If infant loungers are used following the recommended guidelines, they are not necessarily unsafe, but many experts advise avoiding their use altogether and instead investing in safer options, such as a crib or bassinet without blankets, pillows, or stuffed teddys.

  • How Can an Attorney Help?

    Parents and guardians who have suffered from the tragedy of their child being injured or suffocated due to an infant lounger may feel lost and confused about the next steps to take. That’s why it is crucial that you immediately seek legal support from a trusted attorney who has your best interests at heart.

    At Morgan & Morgan, we completely understand the emotional impact an incident like this can have on your mental wellbeing and other aspects of your life, including relationships, employment and more. That’s why it is vital that you receive compensation for the damages caused. Having guidance from an attorney can set strong foundations in place to point you in the right direction.

    We recognize that seeking legal expertise can be a daunting prospect, but attorneys are there to support you and seek the outcome you rightfully deserve. Your attorney will take the time to best understand your situation and the influence it has had on your life. Once they are aware of the matter, they can advise on the most appropriate steps to take going forward. The litigation process can be complicated and incur many legalities, but your attorney will handle all aspects of the proceedings, including making the lawsuit application, preparing a robust argument and supporting evidence. The aim is to make the process as stress-free as possible for you, so you can focus on more important matters.

    While making a lawsuit against the organization responsible can compensate you for the loss or injury of your child, it’s understandable that this does not reverse the situation or make matters better for you and your loved ones. But at Morgan & Morgan, we believe that you deserve to be heard and compensated for their negligence and assistance from an attorney can provide this.

    As consumers, we shouldn’t have to stand for injury or death, our health and safety is crucial, and where companies are careless and fail to put us first, they should be held liable.

    At Morgan & Morgan, we will always have your back. No business’s profit margin should be more important than a child’s life. Not only does bringing forward a lawsuit rightfully compensate you for the horrific experience you have suffered and the impact it has had on your day to day life, such as financial loss due to having to take time off work and more, but it provides the ability to prevent defective products from causing widespread disruption to the lives of other parents in the unforeseeable future.
