Stroller Recall Lawyers
A stroller recall is a request from a manufacturer to have its product pulled from stores and returned. It is also a request to have consumers of the product return it for a refund or product exchange. For example, in late 2014, Graco recalled 5 million strollers after a baby’s fingerprint was amputated while in the stroller.
Why Are Strollers Recalled?
Recalls for strollers are made because the manufacturer believes the product poses a safety or health risk to those who buy or use the product. By recalling the harmful product as soon as they are aware of the danger associated with the product, the manufacturer also avoids violating product safety laws and potential defective product injury lawsuits.

Is a Product Recall the Same as a Defective Product?
Although product recalls and defective products are related to one another, they are not the same thing. A product recall prohibits the sale of a product because it has some sort of safety hazard. A defective product is a product that does not function as intended by the manufacturer. A defective product may not always be recalled by the manufacturer. Sometimes, the manufacturer may provide customers with a quick fix to make the product work properly and not a refund.
How Do I Know If I Have a Products Liability Lawsuit for My Injury?
A product liability lawsuit is based on three categories, regardless of whether the product was recalled or not:
- Defective Design: The injury was caused by a defect in the product’s design.
- Warning Defect: The manufacturer did not provide an adequate warning about any possible risks that they were unable to avoid through making the product, such as the risk of getting one’s finger’s pinched by two parts of a collapsible stroller while the stroller is collapsing.
- Manufacturing Defect: The product was designed correctly, but an error occurred during the making of the product. The manufacturing error caused the product to become too dangerous for a consumer to use.
If your injury was the result of the product being defective because of the product’s design, the actual manufacturing process, or the lack of an adequate warning, then you have a grounds to bring a products liability claim.
