If you are a family with young children, you may have heard about the recent controversy over a certain type of jogging stroller. This stroller has been reported to have caused hundreds of accidents due to a quick-release front wheel that may come off unexpectedly. This can cause the strollers to flip, seriously injuring the person pushing the stroller and the baby inside. This is obviously a scary, harmful, and potentially deadly situation.
As consumers, we must always be on alert for defective and unsafe products. Here are some tips to prevent you and your loved ones from falling victim to product liability:
- Research products before you buy them
- Beware of low-cost products – you get what you pay for
- Purchase products from companies with an established reputation
- Know your product’s warranty and guarantees
