Akron, OH asked in Personal Injury and Products Liability for Ohio

Q: My young son was injured bcuz of a product made specifically 4 kids his age. Do i have a case? Details below.

to know if i have a case or not... i purchased a car bed for my 3yr old, made by a company that specifically makes various toddler/kids products. This particular toddler bed is designed in a way that can & has caused serious injuries to young children. The specific design has an open "moon roof" that gives toddlers the ability to pull themselves on top of the car. Well, my son took advantage of the ability they gave him, falling backwards off the top of the car & breaking his arm. My 3yr old had 2 have emergency surgery bcuz of this, having pins placed. Climbing is a very normal thing toddlers do throughout the day & being a company that makes toddler toys, furniture etc.. for a very long time, they should have known the way they made this bed specifically 4 young kids, could cause serious injuries. This accident would have been completely preventable if they designed it just a little different.
