Melville, NY (PRWEB) August 17, 2012
Attorneys Andres Alonso and David Krangle, founding partners of Alonso Krangle LLP, a national law firm focused on child safety injuries due to defective products, are investigating potential Bumbo chair seat lawsuit claims on behalf of children who allegedly sustained skull fractures or other serious defective product injuries in a fall from a Bumbo Baby Seat. Alonso Krangle LLP applauds the recent action by the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) to recall Baby Bumbo Seats, which have been associated with at least 20 reports of skull fractures in children who fell from the Baby Bumbo Seat while it was being used on either a raised surface, such as a counter top or table, or at floor level.

Bumbo Baby Seats were designed to allow babies to sit upright before they are able to do so on their own. On August 15, 2012, the CPSC recalled 4 million Bumbo Baby Seats because babies had maneuvered out of or fallen from the Bumbo seat, placing them at risk of serious injuries. This was the CPSC’s second Bumbo Baby Seat recall since October 2007, when 1 million seats were recalled after 28 children had been injured, three seriously, when the product was being used on a raised surface. At the time, consumers were directed by the CPSC to contact Bumbo for new warning label stickers and instructions to never use the seat on a raised surface.
After the 2007 recall was issued, consumer groups continued to warn of the dangers associated with the Baby Bumbo Seat. In February 2012, a consortium of safety groups called on the CPSC to issue another Bumbo Baby Seat recall as injury reports continued to mount. The letter asserted that efforts by the product’s manufacturer and the government to warn parents not to use Bumbo Seats on countertops and tables were ineffective.

According to the CPSC, there have been at least 50 incidents in which babies fell from a Bumbo Seat while it was being used on a raised surface in October 2007. Skull fractures were reported in 19 of those incidents. There had also been an additional 34 post-recall reports of infants who fell out or maneuvered out of a Bumbo seat used on the floor or at an unknown elevation, resulting in injury. Two of these incidents involved reports of skull fractures, while others reported bumps, bruises and other minor injuries, the CPSC said. Parents have been advised to contact the manufacturer of the Bumbo Baby seat to obtain a repair kit consisting of a restraint belt with a warning label, installation instructions, safe use instructions and a new warning sticker.
According to Alonso Krangle, parents and caregivers should immediately stop using the Bumbo Baby Seat until they receive their free repair kit. The Bumbo Seat should always be used with the restraint belt, and should never be used on a raised surface, even with the restraint belt. Alleged injuries associated with falls from the Bumbo Baby Seat should be reported to the CPSC at http://www.SaferProducts.gov.
Parents of children allegedly injured in Bumbo Baby Seat falls may be able to file a personal injury lawsuit seeking compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering, emotional distress and other damages.
