Why is the Rock n’ Play Sleeper so dangerous?

 

When an infant is able to rollover, usually around the age of three months, if they are in the Rock n’ Play Sleeper they can roll into a position that cuts off their airway. As a result, if not caught in time, the baby can pass away from asphyxia. Pediatricians and other medical professionals recommend that babies should only be placed in their bed if they are flat on their back and without bedding. Otherwise, they are at risk for suffocating. The basis of the lawsuits against Fisher-Price is that their Rock n’ Play Sleeper violates all of these well-known and understood rules.

 

What could Fisher-Price Rock n’ Play Sleeper defective product lawsuits accomplish?

It can also hold the offending company accountable for insisting on selling a product that is linked to the deaths of at least 32 infants thus far.

Can I pursue lawsuits against Fisher-Price for their Rock n’ Play Sleeper product without hiring an attorney?

 

The U.S. legal system allows individuals to file lawsuits against others for harm done unto them. However, the U.S. legal system is complicated. When a case is emotionally charged, it is difficult if not impossible to deliver an objective and persuasive argument to a jury. This is why even lawyers rarely represent themselves. When Fisher-Price Rock n’ Play Sleeper defective product lawsuits are filed, the manufacturer can be counted on to have not one but a team of experienced and highly paid attorneys representing them. Plaintiffs who do not have a legal education and the necessary skill level to combat the defendant’s legal team are almost guaranteed to lose in court and are unlikely to walk away with a settlement, either.

 

If you have lost your child or your child has been injured, please seek necessary legal guidance before committing to a plan of action.
