Over the past decade, children’s toys have become increasingly more complex and specialized for certain age groups and maturity levels. Just one stroll through the local toy store can quickly overwhelm any parent. With hundreds of different toys using all types of new technology, choosing the right toy for your child’s age group is crucial to your child’s safety and happiness. Toy companies have a responsibility to inform consumers about what age is appropriate for the toys they manufacture. When they fail in this important duty, they could put the lives of children at risk.

Dangers of Age-Inappropriate Toys
Age-inappropriate toys can have small parts or complicated elements that could cause choking, lacerations or gashes, and other injuries. Some toys can even contain magnets which can be extremely dangerous to children if swallowed, potentially leading to injuries such as intestinal perforation. You may be eligible to sue for any of the following damages if your child was hurt:
- Reimbursement for the toy
- Pain and suffering
- Costly medical bills
- Wrongful death
An injury from a mislabeled, age-inappropriate toy could affect your child for the rest of his or her life. By holding toy designers and manufacturers responsible for this terrible act of negligence, you can help discourage future carelessness.
Your family may deserve significant compensation if your child has suffered an injury or death as a result of an age-inappropriate toy. Contact the experienced Oklahoma City age-inappropriate toy lawyers of the Abel Law Firm at (405) 239-7046 to discuss your legal options.
