Aria Child Inc. is issuing a recall of almost 30,000
strollers after injuries have been reported. The gb Qbit lightweight stroller is
made for children up to 50 pounds and sold for around $180 at Babies R
Us and retail stores and online from May 2015 through November 2016. The
strollers can fold up unexpectedly and injure the child in the stroller
and the individual pushing it. The company has received 71 reports of
the stroller folding, and 13 injuries have happened to a child or adult.
One adult fell and received an elbow and wrist fracture. The company also
stated that there is a gap in the stroller’s hinge which can pose
a laceration risk when unfolding the stroller. Consumers are urged to
stop using the stroller immediately and contact the company directly for
Product liability laws are set in place to help protect consumers from
injuries sustained due to faulty or defective products. Each year there
are thousands of recalls due to laceration risks, fire hazards, food contamination,
and injury risks to name a few. Most often the product being recalled
can be exchanged or replaced free of charge. Other times the retailer
might offer money back for the product in question. However, some instances
can result in injury. After an injury, you may be asking yourself who
is responsible for your injuries, both physically and financially. Always
consult a product liability attorney if you have been injured due to a
faulty or defective product. An experienced attorney will examine your
claim and determine if you are able to pursue legal action.
