Defective Toys

Defective Toys

Thanks to the efforts of the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), as well as increased work on the part of toy manufacturers, the number of toy recalls each year has been steadily decreasing. Along with it, the number of child injuries has decreased as well. Fewer children are choking. Fewer children are suffering lacerations, contusions and abrasions to the face and head.

At Bordas & Bordas, we believe that even one child injury caused by a poorly manufactured or improperly designed toy is too many. We bring decades of experience to these cases. Our strong record of verdicts and settlements is proof of our lawyers' ability to overcome all obstacles, getting justice and compensation for injured children.


The CPSC reports that the most common toy-related injuries to children involve choking on small parts, such as balls or magnets. If parts like these are included in a toy marketed to an infant, the manufacturer may be held responsible for the damage done.

Often, defects are one-of-a-kind. They may involve defective bicycles and bicycle accidents. They may involve defective Halloween costumes treated with toxic chemicals or made of dangerous substances. They may involve action figures, dolls, stuffed animals or the accessories that go along with these common toys. No matter what happened, we will bring in engineers and experts to isolate the defect. We will take action against the manufacturer.

Foreign Toys

Many dangerous toy cases do not involve toys made in the United States. They involve toys made overseas, often by foreign companies. These cases can be challenging, but our experience allows us to find sources of compensation in very complex cases so that the victim's medical bills, pain and suffering can be covered.
