How Can Nap Nanny Recliners Hurt Babies?
According to the Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC), injury or death can occur when:
- The baby partially falls or hangs over the side of the Nap Nanny and gets trapped between the product and crib bumpers
- Infant suffocates inside the recliner
The most recent death linked to Nap Nanny occurred in New Jersey, where an 8-month-old girl was found hanging over the side of the recliner, trapped in between the device and a crib bumper. Earlier deaths occurred in both the Generation 2 and Chill Nap Nanny models. Five of the six fatalities happened in a Nap Nanny that was put in a crib with a bumper where the caregiver thought the infant would be safe.
Nap Nanny Recall
A nationwide recall was announced for all models of the Nap Nanny and Nap Nanny Chill infant recliners and covers on June 14, 2013. From 2009 to the time the recall was announced, at least 92 injuries had been reported in connection with the Nap Nanny and Nap Nanny Chill Infant Recliners, including five deaths. Four of the babies died in Nap Nanny Generation Two recliners, and the fifth died in the Chill model. Of the injuries reported, most babies were found hanging or falling over the side of the recliners, including some infants who were restrained when the injury occurred.
About Nap Nanny Class Actions
Although we are a nationally recognized class action firm, the Products Liability Litigation Group at our law firm has decided against the filing of a Nap Nanny Class Action Suit, and is currently filing individual claims on behalf of children who were injured or killed while in a Nap Nanny Infant Recliner.
A class action is a type of lawsuit filed with the court on behalf of large group of people or “class” of individuals that have been injured or wronged. The class is represented by the law firm and the case is generally decided upon a single member of the class who is sometimes referred to as the “class representative or class rep.”
Why Our Law Firm Is Filing Individual Lawsuits Opposed To a Class Action
In some instances, a class action may offer some advantages, as they aggregate a large number of individualized claims into one representational lawsuit. The aggregation can increase the efficiency of the legal process, lower the costs of litigation and in some cases offer the solution to a common problem wherein small recoveries do not provide the incentive for any individual or law firm to file an individual lawsuit.
However, a class action suit can also be a detriment to many class members, as they are often forced into a blanket “low ball settlement” and higher attorney fees. At Schmidt & Clark, LLP we understand that our clients are suffering emotionally and economically due to loss of wages and/or high medical bills and we plan to maximize each client’s recovery by filing individual Nap Nanny Lawsuits on their behalf.
