Window Cord Injuries

Window Cord Injury Lawyers in Galveston

Proudly Representing Texas Residents and Their Families

According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), window coverings that utilize pull cords present one of the greatest strangulation risks to children three years old and younger. Between 2012 and 2017, there were 50 reported fatalities associated with window cord entanglements. Studies conducted by the American Medical Association strongly suggest that there are as many as an estimated 50 more window cord strangulation deaths that go unreported.

If you or someone you know had a small child who was injured as a result of a window cord incident, you might qualify for a legal remedy to compensate you and your family for such injuries. At The Daspit Law Firm, we are dedicated to advancing the rights of injured families throughout Texas. We will strongly advocate on behalf of Galveston residents and their families to ensure that reckless manufacturing companies will not get away with creating a dangerously defective product.

Are Window Cord Manufacturers Really Liable?

Under products liability laws, the manufacturer of a dangerously defective product is responsible for paying compensatory damages to people who’ve been injured by their unreasonable dangerous product. A product could be deemed unreasonably dangerous if the was a commercially viable safer alternative product available in the market.

Window coverings don’t need to use dangerous pull cords that could lead to entanglement and strangulation. Federal and state laws have been passed that recognize the particular dangers associated with such a product.

According to the CPSC, families should observe the following precautions if their home has dangerous window cords:

  • Move all cribs, beds, furniture, and toys away from windows and window cords, preferably to another wall;
  • Keep all window cords well out of reach of children;
  • Eliminate any dangling cords;
  • Check that cord stops are properly installed and adjusted;
