Los Angeles Defective Stroller Lawyers
Baby strollers carry precious cargo, which is why many parents agonize over making the “right” product selection. Unfortunately, no matter how much thought you put into selecting the perfect stroller, the manufacturer of the stroller may not have put your child’s safety above their bottom line. Poorly designed and assembled baby strollers can cause serious injury and sadly, even death.
Many children every year across the nation are harmed because of defective children’s products like strollers. At Adamson Ahdoot LLP, we have seen the devastating effects a child’s injury or death has on family members and are committed to making sure manufacturers of defective strollers are held liable for the damages related to a child’s injury or death.

- Choking hazards

Defective Strollers and Recalls
Recalls can affect hundreds of thousands of strollers every year in the U.S., reports the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). Sadly, many of these recalls aren’t highly publicized leaving consumers unaware of a stroller’s potential dangers. And as much as you’d like to believe agencies like the CPSC are doing their best to prevent an accident from occurring, unfortunately, that is not always the case. Recently, the CPSC has come under scrutiny for failing to recall several children’s products, including a BOB jogging stroller, for serious risk of injury and worse, death.
Between 2011 and 2019, the CPSC received more than 240 reports of injury related to the BOB jogging stroller, but the agency did not issue a recall despite this known hazard. Other recalls involving BOB strollers (manufactured by Britax), seemed too little too late and the manufacturer seems to have been favored by the CPSC. Only after more than 30 incidents involving a car seat attachment for the BOB jogging stroller did the CPSC issue a massive recall affecting more than 700,000 strollers.
Some of the more recent recalls affecting strollers, include:
- Ergobaby Metrous stroller for a potential choking hazard
- Baby Jogger City Select Prams for failure to meet safe sleeping regulations
- Baby Trend Tango Mini strollers for faulty hinges, which can cause the stroller to collapse
- Britax B-Agile and BOB Motion strollers with Click & Go receivers for faulty mounts, which can cause the car seat to disengage and fall
- Thule Sleek strollers for an injury risk due to a faulty handlebar
