Nevada Personal Injury Lawyers Representing Accident Victims in Verdi
Verdi, Nevada shares its namesake with neighboring Verdi, California which is right across the border and shares the Californian Verdi Range. Originally known as O’Neils Crossing to pay respect to the man who built the first bridge in the town in 1860, Verdi in Nevada’s Washoe County was renamed after Giuseppe Verdi – a name that was pulled out of a hat by Charles Crocker, the founder of the iconic Central Pacific Railroad.
The Verdi of today has a population of nearly 1500 individuals, with the vast majority being married couples and several of those having children under the age of 18.
Being part of the Reno-Sparks Metropolitan Statistical Area, Verdi is close enough to big city amenities, but distant enough for those residing within the community’s borders to enjoy a more laid back and relaxed lifestyle.
Just like other communities in our country, families in Verdi always seek the best for their young ones, but sometimes events occur that are out of their control.
Reconsidering Cribs and Crib Accessories in Verdi
Cribs are thought of as a safe place for infants to lay after periods rolling, crawling and toddling about the home. However, many of the cribs and their accessories in today’s baby marketplace pose a number of hazards including:
- Pinched fingers and limbs
- Strangulation issues
- Suffocation concerns
The drop rails on the crib itself can be a cause of concern, though often it’s the products that we choose to outfit the crib with that cause our youngest the most severe injuries.
Crib toys with strings, ribbons, or cords can be a strangulation hazard, while many crib bumpers are associated with an increased risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS). Blankets and pillows made specifically for the crib should also be harshly scrutinized as they are a suffocation hazard.
What You Can Do if Your Baby is Harmed
The first and most important thing to do if your baby is harmed by a product, after seeking appropriate medical attention, is to report it to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). This non-biased group will conduct its own testing on the product and determine whether or not it’s safe, and then, if warranted, demand the manufacturer recall or make any changes necessary to increase the product’s level of safety.
The second most important step to take is to seek legal counsel.
A health and future of child who has been injured by a product needs to be protected, and the best way of doing so is to seek the legal assistance of a trained and professional personal injury attorney.
