Toy Wagon Recall

Fischer-Price will recall 208,000 children’s toy wagons. The plastic handle on the back of these toy wagon may pose a laceration hazard if a child were to fall on it. Fischer-Price says it is aware of seven incidents in which children been cut, five of which called for stitches or surgical glue.

Is this a good product liability lawsuit? Ultimately, Fischer-Price gets a pass on these types of things. There are too few cases for plaintiffs’ lawyers to flush out and the injuries are serious but not substantial enough to warrant a product liability lawsuit (in my humble opinion).
