Unsafe Magnets in Defective Childcare Products and Toys

One of the most common hazards associated with defective childcare products and toys is that magnets are improperly secured to the items. These magnets can pose a considerable threat to small children when ingested. If children swallow these tiny, powerful magnets, they may be at risk for choking or internal organ damage caused by the magnets attracting them while they pass through a child’s digestive system. Unsafe magnets in children’s toys can be deadly.

At Hach & Rose, LLP, we understand the immense stress and fear New York parents face when a company’s defective product harms their children. That is why we work with parents to fight against manufacturers of defective childcare products and toys. Our attorneys hold them accountable for the devastation they have caused.

Health Concerns Caused by Loose Magnets

There are two main hazards associated with unsecured magnets in toys. If a magnet is too large for a child’s airway, he or she may begin to choke if the child attempts to swallow the magnet. However, small magnets can pose an equally grim threat to children. If a child ingests small magnets, they can connect while in the child’s intestines, potentially causing the following health issues:

  • Intestinal blockages
  • Intestinal perforation and internal bleeding
  • Circulatory shock
  • Sepsis

These health concerns often require emergency medical care, but families should not have to bear the associated financial burdens alone. If a negligent toy producer or manufacturer caused your child to suffer health problems due to unsecured magnets, it may be obligated to compensate you to cover your child’s medical bills and other damages.
