Chances are you're not done holiday shopping. And because no one has "trip to the Emergency room" on their list, we're here to help you avoid some of the most dangerous toys this gift-giving season. (A Las Vegas personal injury lawyer's first job is to try and prevent the injures instead of address them.)
The nonprofit organization World Against Toys Causing Harm (WATCH) estimates that a child is treated every three minutes for a toy related injury, so it's a pretty common problem. The organization nominates their ten worst toys each year, with the hopes of making shoppers more aware of the different types of toy hazards available out there.
- Nerf Rival Apollo XV-700 Blaster
- Peppa Pig's Muddy Puddles Family
- Banzai Bump N' Bounce Body Bumpers
- Warcraft Doomhammer
- Baby Magic Feed and Play Baby
- Flying Heroes Superman Launcher
- Peppy Pups
- The Good Dinosaur Galloping Butch
- Slimeball Slinger
- Kids Time Baby Children's Elephant Pillow
All of these toys include potential hazards such as danger of suffocation, choking (because of small parts), inaccurate product descriptions, lack of warning labels, puncture wounds, strangulation hazard (from a string that is too long) and non-age approrpriate labeling.
Since January of last year there have been nearly 20 different toys recalled in the country because of safety defects. All of these issues are potential personal injury lawsuits. We can't imagine anything worse than a child getting killed as the result of a "dangerous toy," especially during this time of year.
For more information about unsafe toys, please see this circular put together by the Keenan Kids Foundation.
While out shopping for your kiddos do you take toy hazards into consideration? Let us know in the comments below. Parry & Pfau wishes you a safe and happy holiday season.
Parry & Pfau’s video has seven shades of laughter, a stunt double, animal actors, a Morgan-Freeman soundalike voiceover, elf jokes, a clumsy Christmas tree, and lots of holiday cheer. But some people still vote for the same old boring holiday card every year. Those same people probably also like being in an elevator full of people who use cheap soap, dipping tortilla chips in salsa mass-produced in New York City, and eating peanut-butter sandwiches without milk. But for everyone else, there’s Parry & Pfau’s Christmas video card.
Pedestrian traffic deaths have increased in 2017 despite a decline in overall statewide traffic deaths in Nevada.
It is one of the questions interviewees dread the most: What is your salary history?
A congested area like Las Vegas, Nevada sees its share of car accidents, and many of us fail to consider that how we drive on the road can affect our chances of being involved in one.
If someone who is close to you was killed due to the negligence of another, understand that you do not have to try to navigate this difficult time alone.
Electric scooters have become all a craze in multiple cities across the United States, and Las Vegas is not immune to this trend
